Poll: Jeb Bush, John Kasich battling for 2nd in New Hampshire

Jeb Bush and John Kasich are battling it out for second place in New Hampshire, according to a new Emerson College Polling Society poll released Monday.

Among likely Republican primary voters, Donald Trump remains in the lead in the Granite State with 31 percent. Bush is in second with 16 percent, followed by Kasich at 13 percent. Marco Rubio is at 12 percent, while Ted Cruz is at 11 percent.

The survey of likely Republican primary voters, conducted Thursday through Sunday, has a margin of error of 3.7 percent.

The poll found that Bush saw a bump in support throughout the survey period, going from 12 percent on Thursday to 21 percent on Sunday. Rubio, the poll found, fell from 17 percent on Friday to single digits on Sunday. A poor debate performance over the weekend might have contributed to the dip.

The survey also found Bush and Kasich were the most liked among likely GOP primary voters. More than half (55 percent) of respondents said they had a favorable opinion of Bush; while 52 percent said they had favorable opinion of Kasich. Half of the respondents said they had a favorable opinion of Rubio.

On the Democratic side, Bernie Sanders leads Hillary Clinton, 54 percent to 42 percent.

The New Hampshire primary is Tuesday.
