  • On the Democratic side, only about one-quarter said they decided whom to support within the last few days.
  • About two-thirds said “recent debates” were an “important factor” in their vote.
  • Three-quarters of Republican voters said they were “very worried” about the state of the US economy.
  • About 30% of GOP voters described themselves as “very conservative,” a noticeable jump from both 2012 and 2008, according to CNN.
  • According to NBC, about 42% of Republican voters and 39% of Democratic voters identified themselves as independents. Those results were more comparable to the 2000 open New Hampshire primary than 2008.
