The race for New Hampshire’s 2nd Congressional District is virtually tied, according to a new American Research Group survey. The survey of 400 likely voters gives Republican Charlie Bass a 2-point lead over Democrat Ann McLane Kuster, well within the poll’s 5-point margin of error.
Kuster picks up 13% of the Republican vote compared to 2% Democratic support for Bass. Kuster leads among younger voters age 18-44 (39% - 37%) but trails among voters age 45 and older (34% - 39%). 1 out of 5 voters (21%) are undecided.
The results are based on telephone interviews of 400 likely voters. The survey has a margin of error of +/- 5% at the 95% confidence interval. The survey was conducted on September 22-26, 2010.
