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)
