N.H. Poll Shows Tight Races on Both Sides

Six days before the New Hampshire primary, a new poll shows tight races on both sides and many voters who have not made a final choice.

The WMUR-TV/CNN poll has John McCain and Mitt Romney deadlocked at 29 percent each. In the Democratic race, it shows Hillary Rodham Clinton 4 percentage points ahead of Barack Obama, within the poll's margin of error of 4.3 percent.

After Clinton, with 34 percent, and Obama, with 30 percent, come John Edwards, 17 percent, and all others with 5 percent or less.

In the Republican race, Rudy Giuliani is 17 percentage points behind the leaders, at 12 percent, and Mike Huckabee lags them by 19 points with 10 percent.

More than half of the Democratic voters and two-thirds of the Republican voters say they have not definitely decided on a candidate.

The telephone polls were conducted Thursday through Sunday and reached 521 likely Democratic voters and 439 likely Republican voters. The margin of error for the Republican results was 4.7 percentage points.
