Sen. Bernard Sanders of Vermont and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton are running neck-and-neck in the early state of New Hampshire, according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday.

Mr. Sanders was at 45 percent and Mrs. Clinton was at 44 percent in the race for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, according to the poll. Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley was at 5 percent.

The poll also pitted Mrs. Clinton against some of the Republican presidential contenders. She led businessman Donald Trump by 7 points, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas by 3 points and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie by 1 point. She and businesswoman Carly Fiorina were tied at 43 percent apiece.

Mrs. Clinton trailed retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson by 2 points, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Ohio Gov. John Kasich by 3 points each, and she trailed Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida by 7 points.

The survey was conducted from Nov. 15-17 — after the most recent Democratic debate and after the recent terrorist attacks in Paris.
