Poll: Brown makes gains on Sen. Shaheen
Brown, a Republican, trailed Democrat Shaheen 46 percent to 44 percent in the latest poll, which surveyed 827 New Hampshire residents from Aug. 7 through Aug. 17. In a poll conducted in July, Shaheen led Brown 50 percent to 38 percent.
“The polls are going to go up and down, but Scott Brown will continue working hard, holding town hall meetings, taking his message directly to the people and earning every vote,” she said in an email.
“This race will come down to who makes a difference for people in New Hampshire and Jeanne Shaheen’s record is clear. She puts New Hampshire first and always has, while Scott Brown is for Scott Brown and the special interests who line his pockets and fund his campaigns,” Vlalich said in a statement.
“Brown is only down by TWO, and the once-distant threat of a Republican surge is here,” the email read.
“Shaheen continues to be popular in New Hampshire, although her favorability has decreased since last month,” the poll said.
Shaheen continued to enjoy double-digit leads over Brown’s opponents in the Sept. 9 primary: former New Hampshire Sen. Bob Smith and former state Sen. Jim Rubens.
