In New Hampshire, Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton faces stiff competition from four GOP presidential candidates but maintains a comfortable lead over the GOP's current front-runner, Donald Trump, a new poll has found.
According to a WMUR Granite State Poll
conducted July 22-30 of 722 adults, Clinton is statistically tied in matchups with her GOP competitors:
- Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush leads Clinton by a margin of 46 percent to 45 percent
- Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul leads by 45 percent to 43 percent
- Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is at 43 percent compared to 44 percent for Clinton
- Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker would have 45 percent compared to 43 percent for Clinton
In a matchup with Donald Trump, who is leading the New Hampshire Republican primary field, 50 percent of likely voters say they would vote for Clinton compared to 40 percent who would vote for Trump.
The findings stand in contrast to the results of a May poll
in which each of the GOP candidates, excluding Trump, tested in matchups had wider leads over Clinton, with the exception of Walker with whom she was tied.
In February, the poll showed Clinton leading
Bush by 12 points and Paul by 10 points.
The findings come on the heels of a Granite State Poll released Wednesday that put Clinton in a dead heat with Vermont independent Sen. Bernie Sanders.
