RNC - ICYMI: Obama, Romney Tied with Granite State Voters

In case you missed it, the latest New Hampshire poll shows Obama and Romney virtually tied in the state. The poll also shows that Granite Staters disapprove of Obama’s handling of the economy by 46 to 41%. It’s clear that growing numbers of Granite Staters are supporting the Romney/Ryan plan to strengthen the middle class over four more years of the same failed policies that have added $5.4 trillion to the soaring national debt and left the country with 43 straight months of unemployment over 8 percent.


Obama, Romney tied with Granite state voters


September 18, 2012



(CNN) – Just 49 days out from Election Day, a new poll in swing state New Hampshire released Tuesday shows President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney in a statistical tie among registered voters in the state.

The American Research Group poll shows 48% favoring Obama and 46% favoring Romney. The president's advantage falls within the poll's sampling error.

The poll also shows 49% approving and 44% disapproving of the way Obama is handling his job as president while 41% approve and 46% disapprove of the way he is handling the economy.

A WMUR Granite State Poll taken last week of likely voters (note the ARG poll today is of registered voters) after the Democratic National Convention also showed the pair in a statistical tie in the state with 45% favoring Obama and 40% supporting Romney with a sampling error of plus or minus four percentage points.

New Hampshire has four electoral votes and is one of the nine states considered a toss up on the CNN Electoral Map.

The New Hampshire Poll was conducted from September 15 through 17 among 558 New Hampshire registered voters. Of the interviews, 167 were registered Republicans, 156 registered Democrats and 235 undeclared voters. The sampling error for the poll is plus or minus 4.2 percentage points.
