A new poll shows U.S. Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders taking a 9-point lead over presumed frontrunner Hillary Clinton among party supporters in New Hampshire. Deborah Gembara reports.
All that hard work on the campaign trail may be paying off for Bernie Sanders. The Senator from Vermont now has a 9-point lead over his chief rival, Hillary Clinton, among New Hampshire Democrats, according to an NBC News/Marist Poll on Sunday. New Hampshire --- which holds the country's first primary--- is seen by White House hopefuls as key to securing their party's nomination. If the primary were held today, 41 percent of the state's democrats say they'd support Sanders while 32 would vote for Clinton. The former First Lady and Secretary of State has been dogged by questions surrounding her decision to maintain a private email server while she was in office. Vice President Joe Biden who hasn't announced whether he will join the race, came in third in the poll, netting 16 percent.
