Fox News Poll: Bernie Sanders up by 13 points in New Hampshire against Hillary Clinton
Hillary Clinton seems to be facing a tough test in the form of Bernie Sanders. While initially Hillary Clintonâ€™s campaign management was not very concerned about any of the two challengers who are staking claim to be the Democratic nominee in the US presidential elections, they are facing a test of nerves at the moment.
While Bernie Sanders has seen his stock rise and rise in the last few months, and more importantly towards the end of the last year, Hillary Clinton campaign management is very concerned about his fund raising prowess.
A latest Fox News poll suggests that Bernie Sanders is leading Hillary Clinton by a 50-37 percent margin among New Hampshire Democratic primary voters. This is a huge advantage over the former Secretary of State and ex First Lady.
The latest poll suggests that Sanders has increased his advantage over Clinton since mid-November, when he was up by just one point (45-44 percent). What is very perplexing for Clinton poll managers is the fact that the senator from neighboring Vermont is very popular among the younger crowd and that this popularity is only going northwards.
The poll suggests that Democratic primary voters under age 45 pick him over Clinton by a 24-point margin (55-31 percent). Men back Sanders by 23 points, while women give him the edge by seven.
If that is not enough trouble for Clintons, Democrats in the Granite State would be much more satisfied with Sanders as the partyâ€™s nominee: 85 percent would be satisfied with him, while 68 percent would feel the same if Clinton wins. While 79 percent of Clinton supporters would be happy with Sanders as the nominee, only 56 percent of his supporters would feel that way about a Clinton win.
