(CNN) -- Libertarian-leaning Sen. Rand Paul is the most popular Republican among the crowded list of potential presidential candidates in New Hampshire, according to a new CNN/ORC poll out Monday. The same poll finds that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has a commanding lead among potential Democratic candidates in the Granite State.
The Kentucky senator -- who has made three trips to New Hampshire, the first primary state, in recent months -- garnered 15% of support among registered Republicans and Independents likely to vote in the 2016 Republican primary.
But with a margin of error of 5 percentage points, Paul's lead is negligible. The rest of the crowd is close behind. Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and 2012 Republican vice presidential nominee Rep. Paul Ryan each obtained 10% of support. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee follow closely along with 9%.
