New poll results from the UNH Survey Center show that Vermont senator Bernie Sanders has increased his lead over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire. Sanders’ popularity among Democratic Primary voters continues to increase and a majority say he has the personal characteristics and qualities that a President should have. Just over half of Democratic Primary voters say they have definitely decided who they will support.

These findings are based on the latest CNN/WMUR New Hampshire Primary Poll, conducted by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center.  Nine hundred seventy-two (972) randomly selected New Hampshire adults were interviewed by landline and cellular telephone between January 13 and January 18, 2016.  The margin of sampling error is +/- 3.1 percent for the entire sample.  Included were four hundred thirteen (413) likely 2016 Republican Primary voters (MSE = +/-4.8 percentage points), and four hundred twenty (420) likely 2016 Democratic Primary voters (MSE = +/-4.8 percentage points).
