Poll: Donald Trump Edges Ahead in New Hampshire; Ayotte Opens Lead

A new poll of likely voters in New Hampshire by MassINC Polling Group for Boston-area public radio station WBUR shows Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump one point ahead of Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. The gap is well inside the poll’s 4.4% margin of error.

Trump has the support of 40% of likely voters in the Granite State, followed by 39% for Clinton. Fully 10% say they will vote for Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein picks up 3%.

The poll also shows Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) six points ahead of her Democratic challenger, Gov. Maggie Hassan. In the race for governor, Republican Chris Sununu — son of Bush operative, Romney surrogate, and Trump supporter John Sununu — leads Democrat Colin Van Ostern by five points.
