Romney and Clinton Lead In Poll

Updated:
UNDATED (AP) -- Hillary Clinton for the Democrats and Mitt Romney for the Republicans are the frontrunners in New Hampshire heading toward that state's first-in-the-nation presidential primary.

A new Marist poll shows the Democratic race has tightened up in the past month. Clinton's 20-point lead over Barack Obama has dropped to 11%. She's still in front, favored by 36% of those polled, compared to 25 for Obama.

On the Republican side, support for Romney has grown slightly. He now leads Rudy Giuliani by an 11-point spread, 33% to 22%. Last month, Romney was up by just four points, 25% to 21.

GOP newcomer Fred Thompson has lost ground. He drops from 10% in New Hampshire a month ago to just 5% in the new Marist poll.

The top issues for Republican voters are terrorism, the economy and immigration. Democrats cite health care, the economy and the war in Iraq as their top concerns.
