NH Voters Not Yet Engaged

2016 is the 100th anniversary of the New Hampshire Presidential Primary, and with more than six months remaining before the election, most voters have not yet engaged. Candidates who are the early identified frontrunners have usually won past New Hampshire primaries. New Hampshire primary voters typically decide who they will vote for in the last weeks, or days of the campaign and it is no surprise that few voters have made up their minds about who they will support in 2016. Currently, only 20 percent of likely Democratic primary voters say they have definitely decided who they will support; 26 percent are leaning toward a candidate, but the majority of voters (54 percent) are still trying to decide who to support.
