Two polls show President Barack Obama holding 3-point leads in battleground New Hampshire.
A poll from Democratic pollster Lake Research Partners released on Thursday evening, conducted on behalf of the progressive grassroots organization USAction, shows Obama leading Mitt Romney among likely Granite State voters 48 percent to 45 percent. The poll also shows a majority of New Hampshire voters, 53 percent, holding a favorable view of the president. Romney, who was the governor of neighboring Massachusetts and who owns a home in New Hampshire, is viewed favorably by a plurality of 49 percent of voters.
The inaugural poll from New England College released on Friday shows Obama falling just short of the 50 percent marker, but still leading Romney 49 percent to 46 percent among likely New Hampshire voters.
Obama and Romney are currently neck-and-neck in New Hampshire, according to the PollTracker average, making the state a toss-up on the TPM Electoral Scoreboard.
