We don’t usually put a lot of stock in polls around here, but hey… the one taken in Iowa proved to be pretty accurate, so…
A new poll released today in New Hampshire shows that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are tied for the lead on the Democratic side.
With three days to go until the New Hampshire primary, itâ€™s dead even in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.
A new CNN/WMUR New Hampshire presidential primary poll conducted by the University of New Hampshire has Senators Hillary Clinton of New York and Barack Obama of Illinois all tied up, with each grabbing the support of 33 percent of likely Democratic primary voters in the Granite State.
Former Senator John Edwards of North Carolina is in third place with 20 percent.
On the Republican side, John McCain is in the lead with Mitt Romney nipping at his heels. The darling of the Iowan evangelicals is way back in fourth place, just two points ahead of Ron Paul (and three points behind Rudy Giuliani).
The new poll suggests John McCain is now the front runner in the battle for the Republican presidential nomination in New Hampshire.
Thirty-three percent of likely GOP Granite State primary voters support the Senator from Arizona, with former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney 6 points back at 27 percent.
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giulianiâ€™s in third place at 14 percent, with former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee in fourth place at 11 percent.
Rep. Ron Paul of Texas follows with 9 percent and Rep. Duncan Hunter of California and former Senator Fred Thompson of Tennessee are tied at 1 percent.
I wouldn’t be too surprised if Fred Thompson and Duncan Hunter were to drop out of this thing come Wednesday morning.
Rudy didn’t really believe the Republicans were going to fall for his whole “I’m a Conservative” spiel, did he? Don’t forget 9/11!
