Obama is only 6 points behind Clinton in New Hampshire, according to a new poll.
Clinton registers the support of 35 percent of likely Democratic voters in the Granite State, according to the poll - a number that puts the New York senator only six points ahead of Obama, at 29 percent. Former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards comes in third place in the poll with 17 percent, and New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson is fourth with 10 percent.
But the poll also indicates Clinton's supporters are more committed than Obama's: 43 percent of Clinton supporters say they will definitely vote for her, while only 28 percent of Obama supporters are willing to make that commitment.
While the two frontrunners are separated by a small margin in that poll, another survey released Thursday puts Clinton's lead at 14 percent. According to a Marist University poll, Clinton registers 37 percent compared to Obama's 23 percent. Edwards is at 18 percent in that poll, with no other candidate in double digits.
The Marist poll also surveyed likely Republican voters and found former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney appears to lead the pack with 29 percent. Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Arizona Sen. John McCain are tied at 17 percent. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee stands at 11 percent.
The ABC News/Washington Post poll, conducted November 29-December 3, interviewed 592 likely Democratic New Hampshire primary voters and carries a margin of error of 4 percentage points. The Marist poll, conducted November 28-December 2, interviewed 604 likely Democratic voters and 505 likely Republican voters, and carries a margin of error of 4 percent for the Democrats and 4.5 percent for the Republicans.
