This is what we’ve been waiting for – our first 7News/UMass Lowell tracking poll of New Hampshire that includes reaction to the Iowa Caucus.
It’s obvious New Hampshire was watching what happened in Iowa because Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Marco Rubio have moved up.
Donald Trump is still in first place, but he’s frozen at 38%. Ted Cruz is second with 14%. Marcio Rubio is third with 12%. Jeb Bush has 9% and John Kasich has 7%.
Rounding out the Republicans: Chris Christie with 6%; Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina with 3% each and Rand Paul with 2%. 6% of voters still remain undecided.
Here’s where you see it: Trump is on top, but not moving. Cruz stays in second. Rubio is up two points. Jeb Bush is holding steady. John Kasich is not getting the reception he wanted. He’s down two points.

Looking at the Democrats: Bernie Sanders still looks like he’ll win, but Clinton is cutting into his lead.
She has a long way to go. Sanders gets 61% in our poll and Clinton gets 32%. Only 5% of voters remain undecided.
Our tracking poll shows Clinton’s momentum: she’s up two points and Sanders is down two points. For Clinton, coming close in New Hampshire could be almost as good as winning.
This time next week, we’ll know the winners.
Between now and then, this is the best way to see who’s going to win.
