Here's a Rasmussen poll that nearly snuck by undetected last week. Details are only available to paid subscribers, but Real Clear Politics has posted results which show Republican Ovide Lamontagne ahead of Democrat Jackie Cilley by two points (41-39) in the race for governor. Meanwhile, Ovide holds a six point leader (42-36) over Democrat (and friend of kathythes) Maggie Hassan.
Here's how Rasmussen rather cryptically words the free part on its web--"A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely New Hampshire votes finds the top two Republicans, attorney Ovide Lamontagne and former State Representative Kevin Smith--running neck and neck with former Democratic State Senator Jackie Cilley and only slightly ahead of another Democratic hopeful, ex-state Senator Maggie Hassan."
That rather mysterious language would lead us to believe that Kevin Smith does about the same as Ovide against the two Democrats, but it would certainly lead Democrats to believe what I've been saying all along, Jackie would be better than Maggie The Dog Torturer Hassan.
This Rasmussen poll was apparently taken as the same time as one which shows President Barack Obama leading Mitt Romney by five points (48-43) in New Hampshire.
Rasmussen reports that 20 to 25 percent like some other candidate for governor or are undecided in every case. 500 voters were surveyed on June 20 for this poll.
Anyone who subscribes to Rasmussen and has more details, please pass them along.
