Ayotte Holds Six-Point Lead In New Hampshire Senate Poll


Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) leads over Democratic challenger Gov. Maggie Hassan in a new MassINC/WBUR poll of the U.S. Senate race in New Hampshire.

This latest poll, showing a significant improvement for Ayotte since the pollster’s previous release, moved the closely-watched New Hampshire race into a tossup on TPM’s Senate Scoreboard.
