ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Hillary Clinton, who lost to Sen. Bernie Sanders in the New Hampshire primary, congratulated her rival and said, "I still love New Hampshire." "I want to begin by congratulating Senator Sanders on his victory tonight," she told her supporters. "I know I have some work to do particularly with young people, but I will repeat again what I have said this week, even if they are not supporting me now, I support them," she said. "Because I know what it is like to stumble and fall, and so many people across America know that feeling and we have learned, it is not whether you get knocked down that matters, it's whether you get back up," she said 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. Clinton beat Sanders narrowly in the Iowa caucuses, the nation's first nomination contest.
