New Hampshire Senate race poll: START PANICKING!

A new poll from the race in New Hampshire for that’s state’s U.S. Senate seat will make Republicans want to put their heads between their knees and breathe deeply to keep from passing out.

It’s bad. Bad, bad, bad, malo:


Here’s more from WMUR:

For the first time in New Hampshire’s blockbuster U.S. Senate campaign, the race is no longer a virtual dead heat. Gov. Maggie Hassan has taken an 8 percentage point lead over Sen. Kelly Ayotte, according to a new poll.

The WMUR Granite State Poll found that the Democratic governor leads the Republican incumbent 46 percent to 38 percent among likely voters, while 3 percent favored someone else and 13 percent were undecided.

When undecided voters were asked who they were leaning toward supporting, Hassan leads Ayotte 48 percent to 39 percent, with 4 percent supporting someone else and 9 percent undecided.

The University of New Hampshire Survey Center polled 907 randomly selected New Hampshire adults, including 770 likely voters, from Oct. 11-17. The margin of error for the likely voter sample was plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.

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.”

If it’s this bad here, it might be just as bad elsewhere, and then you can kiss the Senate goodbye. Thanks a whole lot, Trumpy!!
