GOP poll puts Brown ahead of Shaheen for first time since April

Posted on

(September 15, 2014) - MANCHESTER, N.H. - A poll commissioned for a locally-based Republican third-party group showed Republican Senate nominee Scott Brown leading Democratic U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen for the first time since April.

 

Since Brown had just 1.6 percentage point lead, well within the margin of error, poll number might be more about optics and politics that it is suggesting anything other than the race is tied.

 

It is the first poll showing Brown ahead of Shaheen since April when another Republican poll, that one for the Republican Governor's Association, also showed him up slightly.

 

The Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire poll was conducted by the Colorado Republican polling outfit Magellan Strategies, which sampled 2,214 likely voters. The poll's margin of error was +/- 2 percent.

 

The last time this poll looked at the Senate race it was July when Shaheen held a 5 point lead. Since then the pollster said Brown improved his standing among Republicans and women. 

 

This poll came out the same day that two other polls were released in the race. A CNN poll showed the contest tied at 48 percent, while a Democratic poll had Shaheen up 51 percent to 43 percent.
