in 2017/Top Headlines by

Donald Trump continues to lead the Republican field in New Hampshire, but a new poll of likely Republican primary voters shows Jeb Bush is in second place.

Trump maintains a strong lead over his Republican opponents with 31 percent, according to a Harper Polling survey of likely Republican primary voters in New Hampshire. Bush comes in second with 14 percent, followed by John Kasich at 12 percent. Marco Rubio is at 10 percent, while Ted Cruz is at 9 percent.

The polling position comes as welcome news to the Bush campaign, which has struggled in the polls in recent weeks.
The Harper Polling survey was conducted on Feb. 1 and Feb. 2. It polled 425 likely Republican primary voters and has a margin of error of 4.75 percent. Brock McCleary, president of Harper Polling, said in a memo that the results from Feb. 2, the second night of the poll, were “were largely unchanged from pre-Iowa Caucus results on Monday night.”

Cruz came out on top in Monday’s Iowa caucus, with 28 percent. Trump came in second with 24 percent, while Rubio rounded out the Top 3 with 23 percent. Bush had a poor showing in Iowa, receiving 5,238 votes, or 2.8 percent.

The New Hampshire primary is Tuesday.
