Washington, DC

Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton is maintaining her lead over fellow candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in Iowa, but Sanders continues to lead Clinton in New Hampshire, according to new polls by NBC News, the Wall Street Journal and Marist.

Clinton has an 11-point lead over Sanders in Iowa.

Hillary Clinton = 47 percent

Bernie Sanders = 36 percent

Martin O’Malley = 4 percent

“But Clinton’s lead shrinks to five points when Vice President Joe Biden is added to the field – Clinton at 33 percent, Sanders at 28 percent and Biden at 22 percent,” noted NBC News.

On the other hand, Sanders has a big lead over Clinton in New Hampshire. He has 48 percent, and she’s at 38 percent

And in New Hampshire, if Biden were to enter the race, Clinton loses ground. Sanders would sit at 42 percent, Clinton at 28 percent and Biden at 18 percent.

The NBC/WSJ/Marist polls were conducted between September 23rd and 30th. In Iowa, the margin of error was plus or minus 5.3 percent, and in New Hampshire it was plus or minus 4 percent.
