WMUR: Poll numbers indicate big lead for Hassan over GOP challengers
MANCHESTER, N.H. —A new WMUR Granite State Poll indicates incumbent Gov. Maggie Hassan has a big lead over her Republican challengers.
The numbers show Hassan has a 60 percent approval rating four months before the general election, making her a heavy favorite for re-election.
"So far the governor’s race isn’t that interesting, largely because Maggie Hassan is seen as a pretty popular governor and there's not much call among the voters to replace her,” said Andy Smith of the UNH Survey Center.
Head-to-head against her likely Republican opponents, Hassan has huge leads. She’s up 55-29 against Walt Havenstein and has a 27-point lead against Andrew Hemingway.
