President Obama has opened up a 9-percentage point lead over Mitt Romney in New Hampshire, 51 percent to 42 percent counting leaners, according to a University of New Hampshire poll released Monday.

The results show Obama partially recovering from his widely panned performance in the Oct. 3 presidential debate; his lead shrank from 15 points to 6 points in the aftermath. The new poll reflects voter opinion following Obama's strong outing in the second debate on Oct. 16.

 

Among independents, the race is a virtual dead heat, with Obama polling at 39 percent and Romney polling at 37 percent; 7 percent of likely Granite State voters remain undecided.

The poll, conducted Oct. 17-21, surveyed 773 likely voters and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
