Poll: NH governor Hassan remains popular

Posted: Updated:

DURHAM, N.H. (AP) - A new poll shows New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan enjoying a high approval rating, while two of her potential challengers remain largely unknown.

The WMUR Granite State poll shows 58 percent of New Hampshire adults approve of the job Hassan is doing just after six months after she took office. Forty-five percent said the first-term Democrat should be re-elected next year, 25 percent said they'd prefer someone else and 30 percent said they were unsure.

Nearly 80 percent had no opinion of Republican state Sen. Chuck Morse of Salem, and three-quarters said the same of Sen. Andy Sanborn of Bedford.

The telephone poll of 516 adults was conducted July 18-29 by the UNH Survey Center and had a sampling margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
