ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders was campaigning on Saturday (February 6) in New Hampshire, which hosts the second party-nominating contest on Feb. 9. Sanders lost the Iowa caucus last week to his rival, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, by only the slightest margin and has been urging his supporters in The Granite State to get out and vote on primary night to prevent a similar result from happening. Sander's support base has been younger college students who traditionally have lower turnout numbers at the polls. He has been leading Clinton in New Hampshire by a wide margin and has erased her wide lead for the Democratic presidential nomination since the start of year, putting the two in a dead heat nationally, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll. Clinton leads Sanders 48 percent to 45 percent among Democratic voters, according to the poll of 512 Americans, conducted Feb. 2-5 following the Iowa caucus. The poll has a credibility interval of 5 percentage points. Democrats had been supporting Clinton by more than a 2-to-1 margin at the beginning of the year. Sanders has narrowed that lead considerably over the past several weeks.
