Clinton leads Sanders by two points in the Granite State, according to the Boston Globe/Suffolk University survey. Released on Friday.

Clinton has 37 percent support following a strong performance in last Tuesday’s inaugural Democratic presidential debate.

Sanders, meanwhile, receives 35 percent support but their difference is within the poll's margin of error.

The survey of 500 likely New Hampshire Democratic primary voters from Wednesday to Thursday has a 4.4 percent margin of error.

The poll also found respondents view Clinton as the clear winner of the Democratic debate in Las Vegas on Tuesday.

Fifty-four percent pick Clinton as the winner versus 24 percent who picked Sanders.

Clinton’s use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of State is also unlikely to hurt her campaign in New Hampshire based on Friday’s results. Approximately 62 percent there are untroubled by the issue, with 36 percent concerned by the controversy.

The Boston Globe reported Friday that 38 percent took issue with Clinton’s email during its last poll in June.

Clinton has faced lingering worries that her server compromised national security or exposed sensitive national intelligence.

Sanders defended Clinton during the debate, declaring that Americans are “sick” of hearing about her “damn emails.”

Clinton led Sanders 41 percent to his 31 percent in the last Boston Globe/Suffolk University poll in June.

But other polls show the self-described democratic socialist leading Clinton overall in New Hampshire.

Sanders bests Clinton with 36.7 percent support to her 31.7 percent in the Granite State, per the latest RealClearPolitics average of polls.

Clinton commands a 20-pont lead over Sanders nationwide though according to numerous cross-country surveys.
