The first poll in a succession of Suffolk University/7NEWS statewide tracking surveys of likely primary voters in New Hampshire (conducted 12/31 through 1/1) finds:
- Among 500 likely Democratic primary voters, Sen. Hillary Clinton leads Sen. Barack Obama (37% to 20%) in a statewide primary; former Sen. John Edwards trails at 16%, Gov. Bill Richardson at 5%.
- Among 500 likely Republican primary voters, Sen. John McCain leads former Gov. Mitt Romney (32% to 23%) in a statewide primary; former Mayor Rudy Giuliani trails at 11%, former Gov. Mike Huckabee at 10%, Rep. Ron Paul at 8%.
- All other candidates receive less than five percent each. The margin of samplig error is 4.4% for each subgroup.
Note: Yesterday's Suffolk University/7News was a stand alone sample. Today's survey starts fresh with a different sample of likely voters.
