NH Polls: Dem Race Getting Closer, Romney Leading GOP

Here's a summary of two polls that show the Democratic contest is beginning to get tighter, while Romney continues to lead the Republican field.

Boston Globe/UNH:
Two months before the New Hampshire primary, Romney leads his nearest rival, former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, 32 percent to 20 percent, with Senator John McCain of Arizona third at 17 percent. Among Democratic voters, Clinton, the New York senator, leads Senator Barack Obama of Illinois, 35 percent to 21 percent, with former senator John Edwards of North Carolina third at 15 percent.

Romney, Clinton ahead, vulnerable in N.H. poll

Marist College:
Hillary Clinton’s once commanding lead over her Democratic rivals for the 2008 New Hampshire Democratic Presidential Primary has been nearly halved. Last month, Clinton led her closest competitor, Barack Obama, by 21 percentage points. Now, the gap has narrowed to just 11 percentage points. 36% of likely Democratic presidential primary voters support Senator Clinton followed by 25% for Senator Obama. Former Senator John Edwards receives 14%. The remaining candidates, Governor Bill Richardson, Congressman Dennis Kucinich, Senator Joe Biden, Senator Chris Dodd, and former Senator Mike Gravel trail with single digit support.

Former Governor Mitt Romney leads the field of candidates seeking the Republican presidential nomination. 33% of likely New Hampshire Republican Presidential Primary voters support Romney compared with 22% for former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, and 13% for Senator John McCain. The remaining candidates, Congressman Ron Paul, former Governor Mike Huckabee, former Senator Fred Thompson, Congressman Tom Tancredo, and Congressman Duncan Hunter have only single digit support
