4 in 10 GOP Voters Say They Could Change Their Minds in New Hampshire

A large chunk of New Hampshire voters say they could still change their minds.

— -- A large chunk of the New Hampshire electorate says they're still willing to change their allegiances -- just a day before the primary.

More than four in 10 likely Republican primary voters in New Hampshire say they still could change their minds before tomorrow’s primary, according to new polls out yesterday and today. A CNN/WMUR/UNH poll shows that less than half of likely Republican voters say they have “definitely decided” who they're going to vote for.

And on the Democratic side, opinions have shifted over the last week, according to UMass-Lowell polling in the state. Sanders led by as many as 33 percentage points earlier in the week, but that lead has dwindled to 16 points this morning.

This has been a changing dynamic over the past several election cycles in the state. In 2008, about four in 10 Republican voters made up their minds in the last three days, compared with only 26 percent in the 2000 primary in the Granite State.

These late-deciders also made a difference in Iowa, where a Quinnipiac poll found fewer – but still 28 percent – of Republican likely voters were willing to change their minds in the eleventh hour and give Ted Cruz a final boost to the top.
