Presidential candidates crowd into New Hampshire

Posted: Updated:
LACONIA, N.H. -

The first poll after Iowa shows Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders with a big lead in New Hampshire.

The UMass Lowell/News 7 Poll has Sanders at 61 percent and Hillary Clinton at 32 percent among likely voters.

And the poll was good news for Republican Donald Trump after his second place showing in Iowa. He is at 38 percent. Ted Cruz is 24 points back at 14 percent, followed by Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, John Kasich and Chris Christie.

The candidates crisscrossed the Granite State Wednesday, with the primary just six days away.

Marco Rubio is trying to convince New Hampshire voters he is the Republican Party's unifier.

"If you vote for me, I will unite the conservative movement and the Republican Party," Rubio said.

Some voters we spoke with are still on the fence.

Reporter: What will it take for Rubio to win your vote?

James Dunbar: Ooh, that's a good question. Stand out, show me you can take the lead.

"I want to see more than what I see on TV," said Susan Bunting, an undecided voter.

Rubio has a jam-packed schedule every day leading up to Tuesday's primary.

Hillary Clinton is hitting the ground in New Hampshire just as hard. Clinton is trailing Sanders in the New Hampshire polls.

"I'm going to be out here making my case, answering your questions," Clinton said in Derry.

Sanders is feeling confident and rejecting the notion he'll win New Hampshire simply because he's from neighboring Vermont.

"The American people, frankly, are tired of establishment politics," Sanders said.

The Sanders campaign raised $3 million in the 24 hours after the Iowa Caucus.
