WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWS10) — Senator Bernie Sanders now holds a 9-point lead in New Hampshire over Democratic presidential rival Hillary Clinton, according to a new poll released yesterday.

The poll shows sanders leading 41 to 32. That’s up 19 points from a poll in July.

He’s also closing the gap on Clinton in Iowa.

On Saturday, September 5 Sanders said it’s no accident he’s gaining on Clinton.

Sanders credits his growing support to his stance on economic issues.

Senator Bernie Sanders says his top priorities include transforming our trade policy, raising the minimum wage to a living wage at $15 an hour, and demanding that Wall Street start paying their fair share of taxes so that we can make public colleges and universities tuition-free.”

It looks like Clinton isn’t backing down though.

Saturday, she told a crowd in New Hampshire she’s ready for the challenge.
