Sen. Bernie Sanders continues to widen his lead over Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire, according to a new CNN/WMUR poll.
46% of Democratic primary voters in the Granite State now back Sanders, compared to 30% support for Hillary Clinton and 14% for Vice President Joe Biden.
The New York Times breaks down the poll’s findings:
There does not appear to be a groundswell of support in New Hampshire for a Biden run — 37 percent said he should run, but 32 percent said he should not.
Mr. Sanders has a strong lead over Mrs. Clinton among men and is nearly tied with her for support among women. He also bests her in personal traits: Voters view her as the least honest and least likable of the major candidates.
Voters are nearly evenly split over who they think will win the New Hampshire primary — a question that pollsters say often gives a good feel for the dynamics of a race.
Still, more of those polled said they thought Mrs. Clinton would win the general election in November (51 percent said she would win, while 19 percent said Mr. Sanders would).
