Hillary Clinton has big lead in New Hampshire 2016 primary race

Hillary Clinton for President? In New Hampshire, Democrats sure tend to think so.

New Hampshire is traditionally the nation's first primary state, and a new WMUR Granite State poll found the former Secretary of State with an overwhelming lead in the 2016 presidential primary race.

Clinton, who won the state's 2008 Democratic primary, was the choice this time of 61 percent of likely Democratic Primary voters. Vice President Joe Biden was far behind with 7 percent. Trailing were New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Asked who they would not choose under any circumstances, 7 percent mentioned Biden and 4 percent named Clinton.

The Republican picture was murkier. "There is no clear frontrunner," a poll analysis said.

Fifteen percent of likely Republican Primary voters said they'd back Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul. Next was Florida Sen. Marco Rubio at 11 percent.

The survey was conducted by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center from April 4 to 9.

These polls are too far ahead of the actual primary to predict a winner. It's really bad news for Republicans though. Their "front runners" are both Senators with almost no chance of overcoming that handicap and winning a national election.


Didn't hillary have an equally big lead in 2008? You all know how that turned out. I'm not impressed.


Uh-oh, if she's ahead in NH that must mean she's gotten at least 47 people to vote for her!!! Yep, looks like a landslide to me. I think she hit her head a little harder than they said she did.


Hillary has proved herself and should have won in 2008. Senator Paul like his Dad Ron Paul is seen for who they are and likely Republicans will get a Republican to run and not a Tea Party Lawmaker. With the large minority vote there are some good Republicans to run and a Tea Party candidate could never win in the USA.

Just wait till you see him on his unicycle!
