September 21, 2016 1:32 p.m.

Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) holds a small lead over Democratic challenger Gov. Maggie Hassan in the U.S. Senate race in New Hampshire, a new Monmouth University poll shows.

Ayotte leads the state’s Democratic governor by two points, 47-45, with Libertarian candidate Ben Chabot polling at 2 percent.

Monmouth has not previously polled this race, but a recent NBC/WSJ/Marist poll showed Ayotte eight points ahead, 52-44, among likely New Hampshire voters.

The Monmouth poll was conducted Sept. 17-20 among 400 likely New Hampshire voters, with a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percent.

TPM’s PollTracker Average for the U.S. Senate race in New Hampshire shows Ayotte leading Hassan, 50 to 43.9.
