Bernie Sanders’ lead over Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire is rising, with the Vermont senator leading the former secretary of state by 27 points, 60% to 33%, according to a new CNN/WMUR.
The new poll was mostly conducted before Sunday night’s debate, and it found Sanders’ support has grown 10 points since a late-November/early-December CNN/WMUR poll, which found Sanders holding 50% to Clinton’s 40%.
New Hampshire Democrats’ views on the race are solidifying as well, with 52% saying they have definitely decided who they will support, up from 36% who felt that way in early December. Among those voters, Sanders holds an even broader 64% to 35% lead.
Sanders fans, after they’re done cheering, then need to consider a small fly in the ointment: Sanders’ support rests heavily on groups who don’t usually vote in primaries — younger voters and those who aren’t registered Democrats.
