    A new Franklin Pierce University-Boston Herald poll shows Jeb Bush tied with Scott Walker atop the field of 2016 GOP presidential candidates in New Hampshire.

    The poll has Bush and Walker at 15 percent, followed by Rand Paul at 13 percent, Chris Christie at 10 percent and Ted Cruz at 9 percent. The poll was conducted from March 22-25.

    A Suffolk University poll released last week that was conducted during the same general timeframe had Bush leading at 19 percent, followed by Walker at 14 percent.

    The Franklin University-Boston Herald poll showed that Bush has a high, 37 percent unfavorability rating among Republican voters in New Hampshire, especially the party's more conservative wing.

    The poll did not include Donald Trump, who finished fourth in the Suffolk University poll.
