New Poll Shows Clinton Gaining Momentum in NH

MANCHESTER, NH— With one week until the New Hampshire primary, a new Suffolk University poll released today shows Senator Clinton with a strong lead over her closest rival in New Hampshire.

“As we hit the final stretch of the campaign, our organization and momentum are stronger than ever,” said New Hampshire State Director Nick Clemons. “Hillary Clinton and her campaign will continue to work hard for every vote and take nothing for granted.”

The poll, the first of a series of daily New Hampshire tracking polls to be conducted by 7 NEWS/Suffolk University, has Hillary Clinton at 36%, Senator Barack Obama at 22%, and former Senator John Edwards at 14%. The last poll by 7 NEWS/Suffolk University conducted a month ago showed Clinton with a 7% lead.

The poll was conducted from Dec. 27 to Dec. 31 and has a margin of error for each party subsample of 300 respondents of +/- 5.65%.
