A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll finds Bernie Sanders with a big lead over Hillary Clinton, 58% to 38%.
A new American Research Group poll finds Sanders leading Clinton, 54% to 38%.
A new Harper Polling survey in New Hampshire finds Donald Trump maintains a strong lead with 31%, followed by Jeb Bush at 14%, John Kasich at 12%, Marco Rubio at 10%, Ted Cruz at 9% and Chris Christie at 6%.
Interesting: “The results from night two of our survey were largely unchanged from pre-Iowa Caucus results on Monday night.”
Rick Klein: “There may be no more fertile ground for dumping Trump than in the Granite State, where famously independent-minded primary voters like to zag after Iowa’s zig and reward those who have sweated out the New England winter. Yet, as often occurred in Iowa, sniping lower down the ballot – particularly among the two leading senators and three governors still in the race – could frustrate efforts to have New Hampshire send an anti-Trump message.”
“Republicans look to the New Hampshire primary to winnow the field. But it’s the de facto winnowing that may or may not take place before Tuesday that could deliver the strongest message so far as it impacts Trump.”
“Hillary Clinton is dispatching at least 150 people from her campaign headquarters in Brooklyn Heights to New Hampshire for an all-hands-on-deck effort here in advance of the Democratic primary on Tuesday,” BuzzFeed reports.
Politico: “The feeling at Clinton’s Brooklyn headquarters these days isn’t about pulling off an upset — it’s about closing the gap, and halting Sanders’ momentum by denying him an easy win in a state that should be a cakewalk. In some respects New Hampshire is the only state where Team Clinton can flip the inevitability script — with Sanders positioned as the favorite with lots to lose.”

“Republicans are trying to inject religion into New Hampshire, making a new push to mobilize churchgoing voters in one of the least religious states in the country,” the Wall Street Journal reports.
“If it works, the move could provide a boost in the state’s Feb. 9 GOP primary to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who has been courting pastors and evangelical Christians in Iowa and Southern states, while creating a disadvantage for front-runner Donald Trump, who doesn’t do as well among these groups.”
