Poll shows Shaheen leading Senate challengers

DURHAM, N.H. (AP) -- A new poll shows U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen leading her possible challengers in New Hampshire's Senate race.

The WMUR Granite State Poll shows Shaheen, a Democrat, ahead of Republicans Scott Brown, Bob Smith and Jim Rubens, although very few voters have decided who they will vote for in the November election. Sixty-nine percent of likely voters said they are still trying to decide.

The poll says "the overriding dynamic" in the race is that the Republican challengers are either unknown or are unpopular. It says Brown has the highest name recognition of the Republicans and remains popular with his own party; he is somewhat unpopular among independent voters.

Despite being a three-term congressman and two-term senator, the poll notes it has been more than a decade since Smith has been active in New Hampshire politics and remains largely unknown. Rubens also has struggled with name recognition.

More than half of those polled said they had a favorable opinion of Shaheen.

The telephone poll of 669 adults was conducted June 19 - July 1 by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.8 percentage points.
