Shaheen, Brown in close race for New Hampshire Senate

Shaheen, Brown in close race for New Hampshire Senate

A recent poll has shown that Senetor Jeanne Shaheen, D-New Hampshire, and Republican challenger, Scott Brown are very close in the race for the position. According to political analysts, the outcome could be a close call.

The poll has shown that the both are tied for the Granite State's Senate race. In a survey released on Thursday by New England College (NEC), Shaheen received 47.1 percent and Brown received 46.6 percent votes indicating that the outcome cannot be predicted. The difference is within the poll's 2.69 percent margin of error.

Dr. Wayne Lesperance, a professor of political science and director of the NEC polling institute said that statistical facts showed that the race is too close to be predicted. Brown is a former Republican senator from Massachusetts and is aiming to come back to the Senate from New Hampshire.


The polls showed that he joined the race in April and was trailing Shaheen but steadily increased his popularity and closed the gap in the recent weeks. In a poll conducted during the previous month, Shaheen held a 50.1 to 42.8 percent lead over Brown. The latest poll included 1,331 people in New Hampshire.
