POLL: Rasmussen New Hampshire Survey


A new Rasmussen Reports automated survey of 500 likely voters in New Hampshire (conducted 9/16) finds:

  • Among 500 Republicans, former Gov. Mitt Romney edges out former Mayor Rudy Giuliani (25% to 22%) in a statewide primary, former Sen. Fred Thompson trails at 19%, Sen. John McCain at 12%. All other candidates receive less than five percent each.
  • Among 500 Democrats, Sen. Hillary Clinton leads Sen. Barack Obama(40% to 17%) in a statewide primary, former Sen. John Edwards trails at 14%, Gov. Bill Richardson at 11%, Sen. Joe Biden at 5%. All other candidates receive less than five percent each.
  • Former Democratic Gov. Jeanne Shaheen leads Republican Sen. John Sununu in a senatorial general election match-up.

 

Comments
Paul:

Clinton's lead has increased, now at 23 points. If she comes close or ties in Iowa, and wins big in NH, primary season would seem to come to a quick close. In one month, Romney's lead has decreased from 12 over Giuliani and 21 over Thompson to 3 over Giuliani and 6 over Romney. Appears to be a three way race.

Steve Dasbach:

Rasmussen national presidential polls use faulty methodology. Some candidates are listed by name, along with other. You have to select other to get to the rest of the choices. Not surprisingly, the "other" candidates always do worse in Rasmussen polls than in polls that are properly done by rotating all the names.
