Sanders Closing Gap On Chappaqua's Clinton In New Hampshire, Poll Says

WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Vermont's Bernie Sanders is beginning to cut into Chappaqua resident Hillary Clinton's lead among likely New Hampshire voters, according to a Suffolk University Poll.

Clinton still enjoys a 41-31 percent lead over Sanders, but the pollsters say that lead is shrinking.

“Most political observers felt that Hillary Clinton’s large early lead among Democratic voters would eventually shrunk a bit over time,” David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk University Political Research Center in Boston said in a statement. “But in New Hampshire right now, the lead has shrunk a lot, and this is a much different Democratic primary race than we are seeing in other states so far.”

The former Secretary of State is winning handily in the southern counties of Rockingham and Hillsborough, but Sanders is actually ahead of Clinton in the northwest counties that border his home state, the poll said.
