Poll by pro-Democratic group shows Obama leading Romney by 7.5 percent in NH
The poll of 862 likely voters, completed by Public Policy Polling on Sept. 24-25, shows Obama with 51 percent, Romney with 43.5 percent with 5.5 percent undecided.
The poll comes on the heels of a WMUR poll completed by the University of New Hampshire which shows Obama leading Romney by 15 percentage points.
Those surveyed were also asked a health care question:
';Would you support or oppose creating a public health insurance option administered by the federal government that would compete with plans offered by private health insurance companies?';
According to PCCC and PPP, 47 percent of those polled support a public option, 40.5 percent opposed it and 12.5 percent were not sure.
';This is the second poll released in two days showing New Hampshire voters rejecting Mitt Romney,'; said PCCC spokesman Neil Sroka. ';And the same voters on the verge of re-electing President Obama still want a public option that competes with private health insurance companies.';
