Donald Trump’s divisive plan for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States is apparently not hurting his prospects in the New Hampshire primary. A new WBUR poll (topline, crosstabs) shows him with his strongest lead yet among likely voters, with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie building momentum in the race’s second tier.
