NH Poll: Hillary Dominates, GOP Race Tightens

A new Rasmussen poll finds Hillary Clinton with a commanding lead in New Hampshire. The poll shows "Clinton earning 40% of the vote and opening up a 23-point advantage over Senator Barack Obama. Obama attracts support from 17% of Likely Primary Voters in the state while former Senator John Edwards is at 14% in this poll."

The poll also shows Bill Richardson closely behind Edwards with 11%.

Meanwhile, that same poll shows the Republican race getting tighter.

The poll shows that "Romney is the top choice for 25% of Likely Primary Voters while Giuliani is preferred by 22%. Nineteen percent (19%) prefer the newest entrant in the race, former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson while 12% favor Arizona Senator John McCain."

Here's a link to the polls:
