The former Senator from Massachusetts has a real chance to be the new Senator from New Hampshire, according to a new poll.
A poll conducted by American Crossroads, a GOP-leaning firm founded by Karl Rove, shows former Republican Senator Scott Brown trailing incumbent Jeanne Shaheen by only three points, 44 to 41 percent. Libertarian Gardner Goldsmith has 9 percent, in spite of not gathering enough signatures to appear on this November’s ballot, while 6 percent are undecided. The poll surveyed 500 likely voters and has a 4.38 percent margin of error.
This poll also showed that 67 percent of New Hampshire natives believe the nation is on the wrong track, while only 25 percent believe it is on the right track. 57 percent disapprove of President Obama’s job running the country, while 40 percent of Granite Staters approve.

The American Crossroads survey follows up a poll that buttresses the case for a Brown. A WMUR/University of New Hampshire poll conducted last month showed Brown only two points behind Shaheen, 46 to 44 percent. This poll surveyed 609 likely voters and has a margin of error of four percent. Previous surveys by the same group had Shaheen leading by 10 points in January and 12 points in July.
