    The latest Fox News poll in New Hampshire has been released and it shows some surprising results. Real estate billionaire Donald Trump holds an impressive lead on the GOP side, far ahead of rival Ben Carson, who has recently begun to pose a threat to Trump’s months-long lead in some states. Meanwhile, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders barely inched ahead of perceived frontrunner Hillary Clinton.

    Twenty-seven percent of primary voters gave their support to Trump, who emerged as the leading candidate over the summer and has remained largely dominant ever since. Carson only managed 9 percent, placing him in a tie with former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and behind Florida Senator Marco Rubio with 13 percent of the vote and Texas Senator Ted Cruz with 11 percent.

    In sixth place lands Ohio Governor John Kasich with 7 percent of the vote, followed by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie with 6 percent, former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul with 3 percent, and 1 percent each for Lindsey Graham, Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal became the latest candidate to drop out of the race entirely.

    On the Democratic side, Sanders and Clinton are neck-and-neck, with only one point separating them; Sanders obtained 45 percent of the vote to Clinton’s 44 percent. Martin O’Malley, the only other Democrat still in the race, came away with a disappointing 5 percent. While Clinton still leads on a national scale, Sanders has managed to pull ahead in several key early-voting states.

    Sanders owes his slim victory to the young voter demographic, with 59 percent of voters throwing their support to Sanders compared to Clinton’s 30 percent. The Vermont senator also polled better among men, 49-37. However, Clinton enjoyed a significant lead among older voters – who tend to show up to the ballot more reliably – and women.
