New Hampshire Gubernatorial Race Poll

Rasmussen Reports has this just in on the NH gubernatorial race:

Rasmussen Reports’ first look at New Hampshire’s gubernatorial race since the state’s party primaries finds Republican Ovide Lamontagne slightly ahead of Democrat Maggie Hassan. A new telephone survey of Likely Voters in the Granite State shows Lamontagne earning 48% of the vote, while Hassan picks up 44% support. Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate, and seven percent (7%) are undecided.

This is a critical race since the outgoing Democrat governor was a blocking force against some of the pro-liberty agenda of House Speaker Bill O’Brien.  A Republican governor would make things a lot easier up there – assuming O’Brien and company don’t lose too many seats to Dems and less liberty-friendly Republicans.  Of course, I don’t assume that Lamontagne will go along with everything since he’s more of a social conservative than a lot of Republicans in the House.

Important caveat in this poll: The margin of error is +/- 4.5 percentage points.
