Democratic Poll Shows Hassan With Apparent Lead

In New Hampshire's gubernatorial race, Democrat Maggie Hassan leads Republican Ovide Lamontagne by 6 points in a Democratic internal poll released early Monday.

The poll, conducted for New Hampshire Freedom Fund by The Feldman Group, shows Hassan edging Lamontagne, 49 percent to 43 percent, in a head-to-head matchup. When Libertarian candidate John Babiarz is included in the poll, Hassan gets 44 percent support to Lamontagne's 39 percent and Babiarz's 5 percent.

The poll notes that 67 percent of voters hold a favorable view of four-term Democratic Gov. John Lynch, who has endorsed Hassan.

Polls have showed a tight race since the state's September primary. A WMUR-TV Granite State poll released at the end of last week had Lamontagne edging, Hassan 39 percent to 35 percent. That less than two weeks after another WMUR-TV Granite State poll conducted at the end of September showed Hassan with 42 percent to Lamontagne's 40 percent.

The poll was conducted Oct. 8-10, surveying 500 likely voters.The poll's margin of error is plus-or-minus 4.4 percentage points.
