Poll: Obama Leads
in N.H., GOP Race Tight

Obama has a big lead over Clinton among New Hampshire's large bloc of independent voters, who can vote in either party's primary. They are about even among women. He's also ahead among younger people, first-time primary voters, and men. Clinton does best among Democrats and conservatives. More of Clinton's supporters say they're firmly committed to their candidate, but Obama is viewed as more electable in November. In the GOP contest, McCain and Romney are about even among independents and Republicans. McCain leads with moderates, while the two are close among conservatives. Romney does best with Republicans most concerned about illegal immigration, while McCain leads among Republicans focused on the economy and terrorism. The two top rivals are seen as equally electable.
