CNN/WMUR NH Poll McCain Up 6, Obama-Clinton Tied

MANCHESTER–I’m here at the media center at Saint Anselm College, where all the buzz is about the new CNN/WMUR poll showing McCain opening a 6 point lead over Romney, and Barack Obama moved into a 33 to 33 tie with Hillary Clinton.

UPDATE–This is key:

The biggest shift appears to be electability. 36 percent of likely Democratic New Hampshire primary voters now think Clinton has the best chance of beating the Republican presidential nominee. That’s down nine points from our last Granite State survey, which was conducted December 27-30.

Obama is just behind Clinton when it comes electability, at 35 percent, a virtual tie. Obama gained 13 points up since our pre-caucus poll.

“Obama got something else out of winning Iowa: a big boost in his perceived electability. A week ago, Clinton led Obama by better than two to one when New Hampshire Democrats were asked which candidate has the best chance of beating the Republican in November. Obama’s victory in an overwhelmingly white state may have resolved some doubts about an African-American candidate’s electability,†says Schneider.
