The poll of likely New Hampshire Democratic voters finds that Hillary Clinton has the support of 30 percent followed by Obama at 23 percent. John Edwards comes in third with 17 percent, and Bill Richardson, while barely on the national radar screen, receives the support of 12 percent. All other candidates receive 3 percent or less. “We seem to be seeing a softening in the Clinton vote everywhere,” said Opinion Dynamics CEO John Gorman. On the GOP side, it is crowded at the top. With just over five weeks to go, both John McCain (21 percent) and Rudy Giuliani (19 percent) claim about one-fifth of likely Republican primary voters, while Mitt Romney leads with just under one-third of the vote (29 percent). Fourteen percent of voters remain undecided in the presidential contest. The Republican poll taken between Nov. 27-29 has a 4 percent margin of error.
