Hiller Instinct: 7News/UMass Lowell New Hampshire tracking poll day 1

In New Hampshire, it’s the day before "here they come."

And they’ll all be coming from Iowa, where it’s Caucus Day.

Our exclusive 7News-UMass Lowell Tracking Poll shows exactly where the candidates stand in New Hampshire as they get ready for the first Presidential
Primary here a week from tomorrow.

Spoiler alert:  It’s Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump on top.

The  Donald looks headed for a win here.  With 38%, he’s far ahead of Sen. Ted Cruz…Who’s in second with 12%.

Then, a clump of candidates:  Ohio Governor John Kasich and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush get 9% each; Florida Senator Marco Rubio gets 8%. 

The rest of the Republican field:  New Jersey Governor Chris Christie 7%; Dr. Ben Carson and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul , 3% apiece; and Carly Fiorina 2%.

One more key number:  Only 8% are undecided.

AP News Guide: It all starts with the Iowa Trudge    

And here’s how it looks as we begin our tracking.  

Trump well in front, and then a pack of Republicans chasing second and third place.

Remember, whatever impact Iowa will have on New Hampshire can’t be measured yet.

Like the Republicans, the Democrats also have a big front runner, who looks unlikely to be caught.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, with 61% is more than doubling former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 30%.
 
Former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley barely registers, with 1%, and 8% are undecided.

Here’s the start of our Democratic Tracking Poll, as we begin to measure the daily ups and and downs of the candidates.

Here’s the truth:  We’ve never had a Presidential race quite like this one, so no one is quite sure what’s going to happen.

If you want to watch it unfold–in real time–you’re where you want to be.
