A new opinion poll shows Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has taken his first lead in New Hampshire. The Franklin Pierce University/Boston Herald poll shows Sanders has 44 percent support among likely New Hampshire Democratic primary voters, compared to only 37 percent support for Hillary Clinton. On Sunday, 28,000 turned out for Sanders’ speech in Portland, Oregon, the largest campaign rally for any candidate this year. A day later, more than 27,000 people attended his event in Los Angeles.
All of Clinton’s numbers have plunged significantly since March, when Franklin Pierce University last surveyed the Granite State. In March, 50% of Democratic voters in the state viewed her “very favorably.” In other campaign news, Hillary Clinton is turning over her private computer server she used while serving as secretary of state to the Justice Department. She is also turning over a thumb drive that contains copies of her email. Federal investigators have begun looking into the security of Clinton’s email setup after the inspector general of the U.S. intelligence agencies said that classified information may have passed through the system. There is no evidence she used encryption to prevent prying eyes from accessing the emails or her personal server.
