A new Fox News exit poll shows that more New Hampshire Democrats view Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont as "honest and trustworthy" than Hillary Clinton.

In the exit poll, Democratic voters were asked to choose what qualities were the most important to them when it comes to a presidential candidate. Out of those who chose honesty and trustworthiness as their top qualities, only 5 percent said they supported Clinton. However, 93 percent said they supported Sanders.

Clinton's honesty is more of a question in New Hampshire than it was in Iowa, where 10 percent voted in her favor, the Washington Examiner notes.

The poll comes amid an FBI investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server during her time as Secretary of State, which has plagued her campaign from the start. 

The poll was reflected in the results of the New Hampshire primary, which saw Sanders beating Clinton by nearly 22 points, the New York Times reports. 

"I still love New Hampshire," the former Secretary of State said in her concession speech, according to the Times.
