Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders would beat Hillary Clinton by 16 points if the New Hampshire Democratic primary were held now — and Vice President Joe Biden continues to chip away at her support among Granite State voters, according to a new survey released on Thursday.

Forty-six percent of those surveyed in the latest CNN/WMUR poll said they would support Sanders in such a match-up, compared with 30 percent for Clinton. Biden finished with 14 percent.

The poll of 820 New Hampshire adults was taken between last Thursday and Wednesday. It has a margin of error of 5.5 percent.

In June, the same survey showed Clinton leading with 42 percent, compared with 35 percent for Sanders. Biden had 8 percent.

Increased name recognition via grassroots efforts has brought Sanders more attention, campaign manager Jeff Weaver told Time magazine.

His campaign has more than 180,000 volunteers, he said.

"She does not have 100,000 people, paid or otherwise," Weaver said. "We have a bigger organization than she does.

"She may have more people on the payroll, but that’s not to say she has a bigger organization," he added.

Clinton continues to lead in national polls, and she has been endorsed by many top New Hampshire Democrats, including Sen. Jeanne Shaheen and Gov. Maggie Hassan, Time reports.
