Poll Shows Shaheen, Brown In Close Race For Senate Seat
A new poll shows U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen and possible Republican challenger Scott Brown in a close race for the New Hampshire Senate seat.
The WMUR Granite State Poll shows, Shaheen, a Democrat, ahead of Republicans Bob Smith and Jim Rubens.
The poll says Shaheen has led Brown throughout the spring and summer, but her campaign is being weighed down by national politics, particularly the declining popularity of President Obama. The poll says only 37 percent of likely voters approve of the job Obama is doing as president.
The telephone poll of 827 adults was conducted Aug. 7-Aug. 17 by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points.
