In a race that could determine control of the U.S. Senate, a new WMUR Granite State Poll, conducted by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center, finds that among likely New Hampshire voters Democrat Maggie Hassan leads Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte:
When leaners are included, Hassan leads Ayotte 48%-39%, with 9% undecided.
“The survey center said the new poll marked the first time either candidate in the Senate race ‘has held a statistically significant lead since the UNH Survey Center began polling on this race in May 2015.’” But, half of likely voters have not “definitely decided whom they will vote for.
The Real Clear Politics average for New Hampshire Senate – Ayotte vs. Hassan has Hassan up by 2.0 points.
The new WMUR Granite State poll was conducted October 11-17 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percent. The polls results support Steve Schmidt’s prediction that the Democrats will retake control of the Senate.
