NEW HAMPSHIRE, September 6, 2015– Democratic Socialist and United States Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has jumped to his strongest lead yet over Hillary Clinton in the key early state of New Hampshire for the 2016 Democratic nominee.
In an NBC/Marist poll published on September 5, 2015, Sanders jumped to a 9 point lead over Clinton, which is well outside of the poll’s 5.2 percent margin of error. While Sanders received 41 percent, Clinton took 32 percent and Biden, who has been exploring a run, took 16 percent. No other candidate registered more than 1 percent support.
Sanders first topped Clinton in New Hampshire during the first week of August.
When pollsters first began polling the 2016 race in New Hampshire, Clinton enjoyed support from about 64 percent of those polled. Since then, she has lost approximately half of her support.
