Poll: Shaheen 48 Percent, Brown 46 Percent

Republican challenger Scott Brown is within the margin of error in New Hampshire’s Senate race, according to a new poll.

A new Survey USA/High Point University survey shows Democratic incumbent Jeanne Shaheen winning 48 percent of the vote to Brown’s 46 percent among likely voters. The poll has a 3.5 percent margin of error.

While Shaheen holds a lead in the race, she will have to combat President Obama’s growing unpopularity in the Granite State: The survey finds 54 percent of the state’s residents disapprove of the president, compared with 41 percent who approve of him.
