Ayotte Leads By Two Points In New Hampshire Senate Race

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.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
