Hanover — Democrat Hillary Clinton holds a narrow lead over Donald Trump in New Hampshire, according to a poll conducted last month by the Nelson A. Rockefeller Center for Public Policy and the Social Sciences at Dartmouth College.

The poll of 362 registered voters showed Clinton with 33.7 percent support to 29.4 percent for Trump, with 36.8 percent undecided. However, it was taken April 11-15, before Trump cinched the Indiana primary and became the presumptive Republican nominee.

Clinton’s Democratic rival, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders — who like Trump won his party’s New Hampshire primary — had a 20 percentage-point lead over Trump in the Dartmouth poll, 49 percent to 28.4 percent, with 22.7 percent of voters unsure.

The poll also found U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., with a narrow lead over Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan in their likely Senate contest.

Dartmouth professor Ron Shaiko said the results “clearly identify New Hampshire as a battleground state in the 2016 election cycle.”
