On the eve of the important New Hampshire primaries, it looks as if the polls love Donald Trump, as he likes to say. It also looks like they are starting to love his rival–populist Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

A new CNN Poll of Polls shows both candidates holding commanding leads in their respective races, but each faces a formidable opponent whose support is rising.

Via CNN:

Sanders’ 54 percent to 40 percent advantage over Hillary Clinton is down slightly from a 55 percent to 37 percent lead in the previous Poll of Polls. No public polling has found Clinton in the lead in New Hampshire since November.

Trump tops the GOP field with 31 percent, well ahead of Marco Rubio‘s 15 percent. Rubio has picked up four points since the previous New Hampshire Poll of Polls, the biggest change in the averages in the last week. Ted Cruz follows with 13 percent, John Kasich at 11 percent and Jeb Bush at 10 percent. This pack of four — Rubio, Cruz, Kasich and Bush — has been jockeying for second place in the state for some time. The fifth candidate often included in the group, Chris Christie, has generally seen his support dwindle, and now stands well behind, dropping two points in this week’s Poll of Polls to an average of 5 percent. Carly Fiorina ties Christie at 5 percent and Ben Carson rounds out the group with 3 percent.

But the overall wide margins aren’t an indicator that the political world can turn its attentions away from the Granite State just yet. All of the polls included in the Poll of Polls were completed prior to Saturday night’s Republican debate, however, and it remains to be seen how that will impact voters in the final days of the campaign.

But CNN explains that despite the expansive leads held by Trump and Sanders, they should not celebrate yet. An estimated 30 percent of likely Republican voters said they hadn’t yet decided whom to support, the report says, as did 16 percent of likely Democratic voters.

In case you’re still undecided, there are more debates coming up. CNN announced that it was selected by the Democratic National Committee to host its sixth presidential debate on March 6 in Flint, Michigan.

The debate in Flint came after the Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders campaigns negotiated further debates, prompted in part by an originally unsanctioned MSNBC debate last week. Flint has been in the midst of a water crisis, something Clinton and Sanders have made one of their top talking points on the trail, with Sanders calling on Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder to resign.

“Our Democratic candidates have run spirited campaigns focused on how to best move our country forward, and our upcoming debate in Flint, Michigan, is a critical setting to highlight what’s at stake in these elections,” DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz said in a statement on Sunday. “This debate is an opportunity to elevate the very serious issues facing the residents of Flint, and it’s also an opportunity to remind voters what Democratic leadership can do for the economy —so that everyone in America has a fair shot.”
