N.H.: Durham Two days remain before election day, and a recent poll in competitive New Hampshire shows that former governor and first-term Democratic senator Maggie Hassan and her Republican opponent, retired Army Gen. Don Bolduc, are running in a close fight.
The University of New Hampshire Survey Center's newest poll shows that Hassan's once-significant advantage against Bolduc has shrunk. This race is one of a few around the nation that will likely decide whether the GOP retains control of the Senate on Tuesday.
According to the survey, which was issued on Sunday evening, Hassan has 50% of the likely voters' support, while Bolduc has 48%, Libertarian Party candidate Jeremy Kauffman has 1%, and 1% are behind someone else or are undecided. The survey's sample error of plus or minus 2.1 percentage points does not exceed Hassan's two-point lead against Bolduc. In the last UNH survey, which was done in September, Hassan led Bolduc by eight points.
Bolduc, who is running for the Senate for the second time in a row, barely defeated more mainstream conservative state Senate President Chuck Morse to capture the GOP nomination in the middle of September.
The latest poll, which was conducted online between November 2 and 6, shows that Republicans have gathered behind Bolduc, with 94% of respondents stating they voted for the party's candidate, up from 83% in the September poll. 99% of Democrats supported Hassan, while 47% of Independents voted for Bolduc, 45% for Hassan, and 5% for Kauffman.
The survey shows two-term Democratic Rep. Chris Pappas at 50% and Republican candidate Karoline Leavitt at 30% in New Hampshire's First Congressional District, which has been one of the country's top swing House districts for a century. Five-term Democratic Representative Annie Kuster defeats Republican candidate Bob Burns in the state's Second Congressional District 53%-45%.
According to a survey, Republican Gov. Chris Sununu, who is seeking a fourth two-year term as governor of New Hampshire, has a lead of 55% to 43% against state senator and Democrat Dr. Tom Sherman.
