Poll: Rand Paul leads crowded field in New Hampshire

SHARE Poll: Rand Paul leads crowded field in New Hampshire

It’s a crowded field of potential Republican presidential contenders, and a new CNN/ORC poll released Monday has Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul out in front.

Of those polled, 15 percent said they’d likely vote for Paul. Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush each came in at 10 percent, while former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie each received 9 percent.

On Monday, Paul told Fox News he won’t announce his intentions for 2016 for another six months.

There are no surprises on the Democratic side of the poll.

Hillary Clinton, who was in Iowa over the weekend, gets the support of 60 percent of those polled. Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren is second with 11 percent and Vice President Joe Biden comes in third at 8 percent.
