Just a little poll watching on a Sunday.

As Steve Benen noted, the first poll out after Iowa, a small sample-poll by Rasmussen, had Obama up by 37-27 over Clinton, with Edwards at 19%.

CNN/WMUR released a poll today yesterday with a bigger sample, and the results show a tighter race:

Sens. Hillary Clinton of New York and Barack Obama of Illinois are tied, with each grabbing the support of 33 percent of likely Democratic primary voters in the Granite State, according to a new CNN/WMUR New Hampshire presidential primary poll conducted by the University of New Hampshire.

Former Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina is in third place with 20 percent, according to the poll, which was released Saturday afternoon, three days before the primary.

"Both Obama and Edwards appear to have benefited from the Iowa caucuses. Each picked up three points in New Hampshire. Clinton lost one point, since our last poll taken before the caucuses," said CNN senior political analyst Bill Schneider.

On the Republican side, John McCain has emerged the leader of the GOP pack in New Hampshire.
