Hillary Clinton is way ahead of other Democrats in the New Hampshire race for the 2016 presidential nomination and Republicans are scrambled--but most voters are far from deciding.

 

 

 

A new WMUR Granite State poll, conducted by the  University of New Hampshire Survey Center and released Friday night showed 7 percent of likely Democrats have definitely decided who to vote for, while 1 percent of Republican primary voters have made up their minds.

New Hampshire traditionally holds the nation's first presidential primary.

 

Among Democrats, Clinton is currently ahead with 65 percent, followed by Vice President Joe Biden's 6 percent. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul leads the GOP field with 15 percent, and 2012 vice presidential nominee and Sen. Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire are tied at 13 percent. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie gets 12 percent, down from the 21 percent of last July.

The poll was conducted April 1-9.
