Clinton has big lead in N.H., but most people haven't finished deciding

 

McClatchy Washington Bureau

 

Hillary Clinton is way ahead of other Democrats in the New Hampshire race for the 2016 presidential nomination and Republicans are scrambled--but most voters are far from deciding.

 

 

 

A new WMUR Granite State poll, conducted by the  University of New Hampshire Survey Center and released Friday night showed 7 percent of likely Democrats have definitely decided who to vote for, while 1 percent of Republican primary voters have made up their minds.

New Hampshire traditionally holds the nation's first presidential primary.

 

Among Democrats, Clinton is currently ahead with 65 percent, followed by Vice President Joe Biden's 6 percent. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul leads the GOP field with 15 percent, and 2012 vice presidential nominee and Sen. Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire are tied at 13 percent. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie gets 12 percent, down from the 21 percent of last July.

The poll was conducted April 1-9.

FILE- In a May 7, 2014 file photo, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder and his daughter Kelsey, left, scrub the streets with Holland mayor Kurt Dykstra in Holland, Mich. Gov. Snyder has accomplished much of what he said he set out to do when he was elected four years ago: That's more than many governors achieve in a single term. But instead of cruising to re-election on the fulfillment of his 2010 promises, Snyder’s bid has been met with ambivalence by parts of his own party. Some Republicans don’t know what to make of his neutrality on social issues and his reluctance to bash Democrats. And he’s made plenty of enemies among Democrats and organized labor, too.
