Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders continue to lead in their respective New Hampshire primaries, according to two new polls.

Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are maintaining leads in their respective Feb. 9 New Hampshire primaries, according to CNN/WMUR polls released Sunday night.

According to the Republican poll, Trump is maintaining a double-digit lead, with 30 percent supporting the mogul. Ted Cruz polled at 12 percent, Marco Rubio polled at 11 percent, John Kasich polled at 9 percent, Chris Christie polled at 8 percent, and Jeb Bush polled at 6 percent.

Trump is also the candidate that the state’s Republicans are least likely to vote for. However, just 39 percent of Republican primary voters say they have firmly decided who they will vote for next week.

Sanders continues to hold a sizable lead over Hillary Clinton, 57 percent to 34 percent. Martin O’Malley received 1 percent. Earlier in January, the same pollsters found Sanders leading Clinton, 60 percent to 33 percent.

Most New Hampshire Democrats now think Sanders will win the primary, according to the poll. Like the Republicans, many Democrats are undecided; more than 40 percent say they have not definitely decided who will get their vote.

Both polls were taken Jan. 27-30. Of those surveyed, 409 were likely Republican primary voters and 347 were likely Democratic primary voters.
