A poll released Sunday showed a significant boost for Bernie Sanders in New Hampshire, where the senator from Vermont now leads Hillary Rodham Clinton.

The NBC/Marist poll has Sanders at 41 percent and Clinton at 32 percent, while Vice President Joe Biden — who is considering whether to run for president — is at 16 percent.

Among likely Democratic voters in New Hampshire, which holds the first presidential primary in February, support for Sanders has increased 9 percentage points since the last NBC/Marist poll, in July. Clinton’s support fell 10 percentage points from July, according to the poll released Sunday.

Last week, a Des Moines Register/Bloomberg politics survey showed Sanders within single digits of Clinton in Iowa, which will hold the first presidential caucuses in about five months.

On the Republican side, the NBC/Marist poll showed Donald Trump still strong among likely Republican voters in New Hampshire.

Trump is at 28 percent, Ohio Gov. John Kasich is at 12 percent and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson is at 11 percent. In New Hampshire, each of the men has increased support from July, according to the poll.

That’s not the case for all members of the crowded GOP field in the state.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who was at 14 percent in July, is polling at 8 percent, while Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s share dropped from 12 percent in July to 4 percent in September.
