Bernie gains double digit lead on Hillary in New Hampshire – poll



Bernie Sanders now leads fellow Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton by 14 points, a poll shows, less than a month before the nation’s first primary. The Vermont senator also received a critical endorsement from the grassroots group MoveOn.org.
Over half ‒ 53 percent ‒ of New Hampshire voters support Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont), while Clinton sits at a mere 39 percent, a Monmouth University Poll released Tuesday found. It shows Clinton now trailing Sanders in the Granite State’s major voting blocs who previously supported her, such as registered Democrats, older voters and women. The support of these demographics gave Clinton the lead in the same poll in November, with 48 supporting her and 45 supporting Sanders.New Hampshire, being the second state to vote in the Democratic nomination process, is considered to be a critical state to win to give a candidate momentum heading into the remainder of the caucus and primary season.
