DURHAM, N.H. (AP) -- It's a long time before New Hampshire's 2016 first-in-the-nation presidential primary, but a poll shows Democrats favoring Hillary Clinton and no clear Republican leader.

The WMUR Granite State Poll finds most Democrats and Republicans are undecided -- and no one's declared their candidacy. But if the primary were held today, 62 percent of likely Democratic voters would support Clinton, New Hampshire's 2008 primary winner.

Twenty-one percent of likely Republican primary voters would support New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan had 16 percent; former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush had 10 percent.

The phone poll of 516 residents was conducted July 18-29. It had a sampling margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points overall and 7 percentage points among likely Republican and Democratic voters.
