By Juliegrace Brufke – A new survey shows Sen. Bernie Sanders crushing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by a whopping 16 percent in the Granite State just one day before the New Hampshire primaries.
The University of Massachusetts Lowell/7News poll, released Monday, has Clinton coming at 40 percent, Sanders at 56 percent and 4 percent undecided among likely voters.
Sanders still holds a commanding lead over Clinton, but he saw a slip from where he was in the Feb. 2 survey when he held a 63 to 30 percent advantage.
When voters were asked if it’s possible they could have a last-minute change of heart, 21 percent of Clinton supporters and 18 percent of Sanders supporters said yes.
Women in the state seem to be unfazed by former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright’s recent call for females to back Clinton, having told “Meet the Press” anchor Chuck Todd “there’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other.” Sanders holds a 5-point lead over the former first lady among women in the state.
When put against Republican front-runner Donald Trump, Clinton held a 5-percent lead over the billionaire at 45 percent and 40 percent respectively. Sanders held a much larger margin over Trump – beating the outspoken businessman 55 percent to 34 percent.
Clinton – once considered a shoo-in for the nomination – managed to edge out Sanders in Iowa by less than 1 percent.
The poll was conducted from Feb. 5-7 using phone interviews of 1,411 registered voters and leaves a margin of error of +/- 2.99 percent.
