Clinton recaptures lead in New Hampshire

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Hillary Clinton appears to have recaptured the lead among Democratic candidates in New Hampshire, according to results of a new CNN/WMUR poll, conducted by the University of New Hampshire.

Clinton was virtually tied with Illinois Sen. Barack Obama in last week’s New Hampshire poll, along with several other recent surveys.

But in the Wednesday poll, the New York senator now has a 12-point lead over Obama — 38 percent to 26 percent.

Former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards is in third place with 14 percent, with the remaining Democratic hopefuls in single digits, according to the poll.

Clinton gained some 7 percentage points over last week’s poll, with Obama losing 4 percentage points.

Once again…do these daily, weekly polls really capture the mind of the voter…or are the polls engineered to sway the mind of the voter? I guess we will all see in January.
