An internal poll released by Republican Don Bolduc's campaign shows that the Senate race with incumbent Democrat Maggie Hassan is tied, with just over three weeks until Election Day.

The poll of 600 likely general election voters by Fabrizio, Lee and Associtates shows Hassan at 48%, Bolduc at 47%, and 5% unsure. The poll has a margin of error of 4%.

An earlier Granite State Poll by the UNH Survey Center, The Saint Anselm College Survey Center at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics, Emerson College, and AARP New Hampshire gave Hassan a lead between 5% and 10%.

"We found a politically divided state that is open to voting for a Republican and where a
majority don’t want to re-elect Maggie Hassan. Contrary to conventional wisdom, this poll shows Don Bolduc in a statistical dead heat with Maggie Hassan, with room to grow," according to the poll posted by Bolduc's campaign labeled "confidential memorandum."

"This race is about as close as you can get, and is anybody’s ballgame," the pollster concludes.

The poll is consistent with the other polls in giving Gov. Chris Sununu a wide lead over Democratic challenger state Sen. Tom Sherman, 57%-40%, with 4% undecided.

The poll did not survey the First Congressional District race between incumbent Democrat Rep. Chris Pappas and Republican challenger Karoline Leavitt. An AARP New Hampshire survey shows Leavitt and Pappas essentially in a tie, 48%-47%, with a margin of error of 4.4%.

Dean Spiliotes, SNHU Civic Scholar, founder of NH Political Capital and Seacoast Current's political analyst, takes the results with a grain of salt.

"While I expect the race to tighten, I would first want to see confirmation from some other polling operations in the state. Better to look at something like the Real Clear Politics average than risk over-interpreting movement in the race from a single poll, especially a favorable internal one that was 'leaked' to the press," Spiliotes said.

Nonetheless, Bolduc is encouraged by the data his campaign paid for.

"Granite Staters have had enough of the failed Biden-Hassan Administration disrupting their livelihoods. New Hampshire voters are fired up to elect a political outsider who will serve them to the U.S. Senate," the Republican tweeted.
