WMUR – There is no change at the top of the Republican presidential field, but with less than three weeks remaining in the 2016 New Hampshire first-in-the-nation primary campaign, there is both a new runner-up and a tie for third place.
New York businessman Donald Trump, for the first time, has a 20 percentage point lead in the Granite State, according to the latest WMUR/CNN New Hampshire Primary Poll. But U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas has supplanted U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida in second place, while former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has moved up to tie Rubio for third.
