Poll: Trump leads, Rubio gains ground in New Hampshire

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump continued to maintain his lead in New Hampshire Tuesday, according to a new CNN/WMUR poll.

Trump, who is second on the Washington Examiner's latest power rankings, currently leads the field with 32 percent support, with Sen. Marco Rubio in a distant second place with 14 percent backing, a five-point bump from their September poll.

The rest of the pack is bunched up in single digits, with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie at 9 percent. Christie is followed by former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (8 percent), Ohio Gov. John Kasich (7 percent), Sen. Ted Cruz (6 percent), Carly Fiorina and Dr. Ben Carson (both at 5 percent).

Christie rose four percentage points in the state since the September survey, while also enjoying a 53 percent favorability rating, the third highest amongst the field behind only Rubio and Trump. The New Jersey governor was recently endorsed by the New Hampshire Union Leader.
