It seems I may have been unduly pessimistic about Senator John Sununu’s chances in New Hampshire in my most recent post on the subject. A new Rasmussen Poll shows Sununu narrowly trailing former Democratic Governor Jean Shaheen by 5 points – 48% to 43%.
Importantly, “Shaheen is viewed favorably by 51% of New Hampshire voters and unfavorably by 44%. Sununu’s numbers are almost identical–50% favorable and 43% unfavorable.”
Update: A new American Research Group poll, which had Shaheen up double digits in its previous poll, now has Shaheen ahead by 5 points as well – 46% to 41%.
