A WMUR Gran­ite State Poll puts Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D) ahead of former Sen. Scott Brown (R) 45 to 39 per­cent, with 14 per­cent un­de­cided (April 1-9, 507 LVs, +/- 5%.) Just three months ago the same poll has Shaheen with a 10-point lead, 47 to 37 per­cent. A second sur­vey by Pub­lic Policy Polling, com­mis­sioned by the League of Con­ser­va­tion Voters, shows Shaheen with an 8 point lead, at 49 per­cent to Brown’s 41 per­cent (April 7-8, 1,034 RVs). PPP’s sur­vey tracked Shaheen’s ap­prov­al rat­ing at 47 per­cent and Brown’s at 35 per­cent. (re­leases)

BROWN IN: Brown of­fi­cially entered the race with an event in Ports­mouth Thursday, and is set to re­lease his first TV ad Monday. The spot fea­tures the former law­maker tra­vers­ing the state in his truck, “listen­ing” and “learn­ing” about what New Hamp­shire res­id­ents want. (Politico)

Mean­while, the former Bo­ston may­or called the one-time Mas­sachu­setts law­maker a “car­pet­bag­ger.” Tom Men­ino said Thursday that Brown “is not a New Hamp­shire per­son. He’s a Mas­sachu­setts per­son,” and pre­dicted that Shaheen would win the race. (WCVB)
