Press Release - New Poll- Kasich Continues Dominance in Key November States

February 29, 2016


"...the poll conducted by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center shows that Ohio Gov. John Kasich has emerged as the strongest Republican to take on the Vermont senator in a hypothetical November battle for the state's four electoral votes.

Not only does Kasich come closer to Sanders than his GOP competitors, but the poll, conducted Feb. 20-28, also shows Kasich leading former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by 10 percentage points in the Granite State."


Other Key Findings:

— WMUR's January poll showed Kasich and Clinton tied at 43 percent each. But in the new poll, Kasich has jumped to a 47 percent to 37 percent lead over the former secretary of state.

— In a hypothetical contest between the two New Hampshire primary winners, Trump trails Sanders 55 percent to 34 percent. Trump also trails Clinton, but by a closer margin of 47 percent to 39 percent.

— Rubio and Clinton have been in a virtual dead heat in New Hampshire since last July. At that time, Clinton led 44 percent to 43 percent, while in January, Rubio led 45 percent to 44 percent. The new poll shows Clinton ahead of Rubio 45 percent to 43 percent.

— Cruz currently trails Clinton 46 percent to 35 percent, while in January, Clinton led Cruz 47 percent to 41 percent.
