New Hampshire Senate: Shaheen (D) 50%, Brown (R) 41%
Rasmussen Reports ^ | March 17, 2014

Posted on 03/17/2014 5:41:52 PM PDT by Clintonfatigued

Former Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown announced Friday that he is laying the groundwork for a possible challenge against incumbent Democratic Senator Jeanne Shaheen in New Hampshire, but Shaheen is comfortably ahead of Brown for now in Rasmussen Reports’ first look at the possible U.S. Senate race in the Granite State.

A new statewide survey of Likely New Hampshire Voters finds Shaheen with 50% support to Brown’s 41%. Four percent (4%) like some other candidate in the race, and five percent (5%) are undecided.

Scott Brown isn’t Jesse Helms, but he’ll give us a real shot at removing Harry Reid from his post. I hope he succeeds.

It didn’t bother New York in 2000. Besides, many New Hampshire voters are Massachusetts transplants.

If a Republican incumbent was polling right at 50 percent, I bet this article would have read differently.

So the RINO’s also a carpetbagger.

Shaheen is more of a carpetbagger than Brown is. He does have generations of family buried in New Hampshire and he was raised there. Shaheen is from Missouri. Give it time. If he can close it to 4 points, Dems will lose money defending her.

Guess NH doesn’t care for carpetbaggers.

50% for an incumbent this early in the season is not a good sign. If I were Shaheen, I would be cancelling my vacation in Tom Harkin's Elbow Quay hideaway in the Bahamas.

Polls like this tend to reflect the top end for incumbents, so it suggests that Shaheen can't do better than 50%. Brown, even though he is fairly well known, has a potential upside. It remains to be seen if he can capitalize on this upside potential, but it's there for the taking. Shaheen should be worried.

At 50% or below she’s right on the edge of being replaced. She votes 0% with conservatives....he votes about 55% with conservatives. Take your pick NH.

Several factors are at play here:

-Anyone 34 and under has been brainwashed by public education.

-The only TV station in NH that does local news is a liberal network.

-Any college student with an ID can vote here giving dems potentially +100k voters.

-People from MA drive up and vote here, or so it’s said.

-MA transplants have made the state redder. There was a study on this a few years ago.

-Long time NH residents don’t realize how good they have it compared to other blue states.

Check out Rasmussen.....he routinely over-compensates for the dims.

If he is polling 50/40 or thereabouts for this race, this means that Scott Brown is at worst tied or likley ahead.

Compare Rasmussen to all of the pollsters on Real Clear Politics and you will see what I mean.

He caught so much flack a couple of cycles ago from the dims that he is now making nice....which is to our advantage.

However, New Yorkers have made it bluer. Red Hampshire will NEVER go conservative again. Let it go, folks.

It’s too early. Wait til Shaheen gets the Obamacare necklace treatment.

This will be a close race. Brown is a very likeable rino. And I predict that he wins by 2%.

And if Brown is a “carpetbagger” than so is half of NH. The half that escaped from Taxachusetts.

Four percent (4%) like some other candidate in the race, and five percent (5%) are undecided.
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Add 7% more to Browns 41%. Half of those who now say “another candidate” will, in the end, go for the challenger. Undecideds ALWAYS go for the challenger. So, right now It’s Shaheen 50% and Brown 48%. And, remember, Brown is not even officially a candidate yet and has not yet begun to spend that boatload of money, that he has, campaigning.

Not necessarily anymore. College students might be stupid, but they’re not ignorant. Polls are showing that the college-age Americans are leaving Obama, and the DemocRATS, in droves; thanks in part to ObamaCare. Besides, the percentage of them that vote in mid-term elections is pathetically low.

Only because conservatives do not fight the way the left fights. A good fight would return us solidly center right.

Definition of fight is insist on taking over academia, and the news media too, as they did.

NH will probably never be a “Red State” again.

I talk to people who grew up here and they think liberalism is just great. No amount of reasoning can get them to see reality.

The public education system is a major cause of the US turning bluer and bluer yet the GOP doesn’t even understand this.

I agree with the lack of fight, but 1 million LEGAL immigrants are coming into the country every year & 80% of them vote democratic. We are being replaced.

You bring up a good point.

Every year 2.4m (mostly white, majority R voting) people die and are replaced by 2.52m (mostly minority, heavily D voting) people.

It’s a difficult trend for our side.

Wow. You are declaring this race over because Brown is 9 points behind on a poll taken just two days after he announces he "might" run?

I think that if incumbent Shaheen is only 9 points ahead of somebody who hasn't even formally announced yet, she's in some serious trouble.

You are right, New Hampshire is solidly a blue state, a moonbat one. The New England states(all of them), Iowa, Oregon, and Washington are lost causes. These are the hard left bastions. Why you ask, because these states are the only ones where the white vote went for Obama. The other blue states are blue by demographics, like NY, NJ, California, etc. In these states Romney won the white vote, in NJ solidly. So the old conservative New Hampshire is history.

NH got overwhelmed with blow-ins from MA, NY, NJ, CA. IT had a small population of under 1 million not so long ago. When you get 4 to 5 hundred thousand new people coming into such a small state within 20 to 25 years it changes everything. NH, not that long ago, was a very conservative place. It still has no sales, income, capital gains, or death taxes. Sad situation.

Can’t think of any reason not to want Brown to replace Sheehan. Conservatives had no viable candidate so at least switch NH to an R to help Senate control.

Besides Sheehan is a particularly disgusting ignoramus.

Guess NH doesn’t care for carpetbaggers.

Sadly unlike Massachusetts, whose voters tossed Brown out to elect Fauxcahontas (Elizabeth Warren, the fake Indian) from Oklahoma, and who have twice elected Deval Patrick (Obama's Mini-Me) from Chicago, as governor. And oh yeah: the Senator that Scott Brown would like to replace, Jeanne Shaheen - she's from Missouri.

Americans are afraid of the race-card more than they care about their own nation I’m afraid to say. Look at it this way: if people can somehow believe the disgusting act of male on male sodomy equates with marriage.....they will believe anything. We are living through the total collapse of the Western world.

You just fell miles off my Christmas card list. Like Obamacare? Because I heard Scott Brown say, on the Boston based Howie Carr show, that that he DID NOT want to repeal it!
Like illegal aliens? I hope so because he is also ok with amnesty.

When the hell does the playing field start tipping in the other direction? ...when the GOP realizes they can’t keep sending us empty suits like Scott Brown.

The fact is if Brown isn’t the nominee Shaheen will face some nobody (or a loser like traitorous Kerry supporting envrionazi Ex-Senator Bob Smith who is also running) and win easily.

Unfortunately the NH GOP has a bare cupboard.

Good grief.

Your other option is Shaheen. You’re not going to get a Ted Cruz of Mike Lee out of NH anytime soon.

If this was SC, ID or OK I would say NO RINOS.

And even if he loses, he’ll force the dem’s to spend a lot of money defending a seat they thought was safe one month ago.

I just don't get NH. There are conservatives who live there. Yet,they gave us backstabber mini-McCain Kelli Ayotte. Now, the Republican Party wants to run Scott Brown, who was a disappointment to everyone when he got to DC.

One has to wonder if dem sympathizers are controlling the Republican Party there.

Scott Brown is better than Kelly Ayotte. He should come out like others and refuse to endorse Mitch.

Kelly Ayotte has no problem with creating 12 million Democrats.

I’d at least like to see the GOP primary turn into an attack on Ayotte’s voting record.
