Donald Trump is holding onto his lead in the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire, while Carly Fiorina has climbed into second place, according to new survey.

The CNN/WMUR poll released Thursday showed Mr. Trump leading the field, followed by Ms. Fiorina, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and Ben Carson.

The pollsters — Andrew E. Smith and Zachery S. Azem — said that Mr. Trump also is the candidate that New Hampshire Republicans say they are least likely to support.

They also stressed that most New Hampshire Republicans are still making up their minds.

“New Hampshire primary voters usually decide who they will vote for in the last weeks, or days of the campaign and it is no surprise that few likely Republican primary voters have made up their mind about who they will support in 2016,” they said. “Currently, only 13 percent of likely Republican Primary voters say they have definitely decided who they will support, 28 percent are leaning toward a candidate, and 59 percent are still trying to decide.”

Mr. Trump was the first choice of 26 percent of those survey, compared to 16 percent for Ms. Fiorina, 9 percent for Mr. Rubio and 8 percent for Mr. Carson.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Ohio Gov. John Kasich received 7 percent, while Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie pulled in 5 percent.

Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky received 3 percent.
