Real es­tate mogul Don­ald Trump (R) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) hold their leads in their re­spect­ive New Hamp­shire primar­ies in two new polls. In the NBC News/Wall Steet Journ­al/Mar­ist poll, Trump leads the Re­pub­lic­an field (Feb. 2-3; 653 Re­pub­lic­an LVs; +/- 3.8%) with 30% of the vote. Sen. Marco Ru­bio (R-FL) has 17%, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has 15%, Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) has 10%, and former Flor­ida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) has 9%, the last can­did­ate at or above 5%. (NBC News)

On the Demo­crat­ic side (567 Demo­crat­ic LVs; +/- 4.1%), Sanders leads former Sec­ret­ary of State Hil­lary Clin­ton (D) 58% to 38%. (NBC News)

A CNN/WMUR/Uni­versity of New Hamp­shire poll also has Trump lead­ing the Re­pub­lic­an nom­in­a­tion (Feb. 2-4; 209 LVs; +/- 6.8%). Trump has 29% to Ru­bio’s 18%. Cruz has 13%, Kasich has 12%, and Bush has 10%, the last can­did­ate in double di­gits. (CNN)

For the Demo­crats (228 Demo­crat­ic LVs; +/- 6.5%), Sanders leads Clin­ton 61% to 30%. (re­lease)

NA­TION­ALLY. Trump and Clin­ton still leads their races na­tion­ally, in a poll by Quin­nipi­ac Uni­versity. For the Re­pub­lic­ans (Feb. 2-4; 507 Re­pub­lic­an RVs; +/- 4.4%), Trump leads with 31%, fol­lowed by Cruz’s 22% and Ru­bio’s 19%. Re­tired neurosur­geon Ben Car­son (R) is a dis­tant fourth with 6%, the last can­did­ate at or above 5%.

For the Demo­crats (484 Demo­crat­ic RVs; +/- 4.5%), Clin­ton has a sight edge over Sanders, 44% to his 42%.

In head-to-heads (1125 RVs; +/- 2.9%), Clin­ton beats Trump 46%-41%, ties Cruz 45%-45%, and loses to Ru­bio 41%-48%.

Sanders would beat Trump 49%-39%, beat Cruz 46%-42%, and tie Ru­bio 43%-43%.

If former New York City May­or Mi­chael Bloomberg (I) entered the race as an in­de­pend­ent, Trump would beat Sanders and Bloomberg 36%-35%-15%.

In a race between Sanders, Cruz, and Bloomberg, Sanders comes out ahead with 37%, com­pared to Cruz’s 36% and Bloomberg’s 15%. (re­lease)

THE DETAILS

"The FBI is investigating whether a top Russian banker with ties to the Kremlin illegally funneled money to the National Rifle Association to help Donald Trump win the presidency." Investigators have focused on Alexander Torshin, the deputy governor of Russia’s central bank "who is known for his close relationships with both Russian President Vladimir Putin and the NRA." The solicitation or use of foreign funds is illegal in U.S. elections under the Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA) by either lobbying groups or political campaigns. The NRA reported spending a record $55 million on the 2016 elections.

THE LATEST

"Hundreds of new and supplemental FARA filings by U.S. lobbyists and public relations firms" have been submitted "since Special Counsel Mueller charged two Trump aides with failing to disclose their lobbying work on behalf of foreign countries. The number of first-time filings ... rose 50 percent to 102 between 2016 and 2017, an NBC News analysis found. The number of supplemental filings, which include details about campaign donations, meetings and phone calls more than doubled from 618 to 1,244 last year as lobbyists scrambled to avoid the same fate as some of Trump's associates and their business partners."
