First post-Iowa polls show Hillary, Rubio getting slight bumps
A poll published after the Iowa caucus results shows Hillary Clinton and Marco Rubio receiving slight increases in support in New Hampshire.
Clinton and Rubio both got 2-point bumps in the University of Massachusetts/7 News poll. Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump still have wide leads in the state.
It's obvious New Hampshire was watching what happened in Iowa because Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Marco Rubio have moved up.
Donald Trump is still in first place, but he's frozen at 38%. Ted Cruz is second with 14%. Marcio Rubio is third with 12%. Jeb Bush has 9% and John Kasich has 7%.
Rounding out the Republicans: Chris Christie with 6%; Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina with 3% each and Rand Paul with 2%. 6% of voters still remain undecided.
Here's where you see it: Trump is on top, but not moving. Cruz stays in second. Rubio is up two points. Jeb Bush is holding steady. John Kasich is not getting the reception he wanted. He's down two points.
She has a long way to go. Sanders gets 61% in our poll and Clinton gets 32%. Only 5% of voters remain undecided.Looking at the Democrats: Bernie Sanders still looks like he'll win, but Clinton is cutting into his lead.
Our tracking poll shows Clinton's momentum: she's up two points and Sanders is down two points. For Clinton, coming close in New Hampshire could be almost as good as winning.
This time next week, we'll know the winners.
The UMass poll is a tracking poll, averaging out results over a three-day period. Two of those three results came after the Iowa caucuses were completed. It's possible that there will be an even larger bump for Clinton and Rubio as the week goes on.
Both Sanders and Trump look unbeatable at this point. But as we saw in 2008, New Hampshire polls can fluctuate wildly – especially the last weekend before the primary. Hillary Clinton was trailing Barack Obama by double digits that last weekend and ended up winning by 5%. Both Trump and Sanders should keep that in mind and not take anything for granted.
