BREAKING NEWS: GAME ON!!! Hodes, Shea-Porter Surging

Tonight's WMUR-University of New Hampshire poll shows New Hampshire voters are hungry for change. Paul Hodes has opened a clear lead over Congressman Charlie Bass with Hodes at 45 percent to Bass at 37 percent, an 18-point swing for Hodes from the September UNH poll. Congressman Jeb Bradley is in a dead heat with First District Congressional Candidate Carol Shea-Porter who is at 42 percent to Bradley's 47 percent. This is a significant closing of the gap from the September UNH poll that had Bradley at 52 percent and Shea-Porter at 33 percent.

Carol Shea-Porter and Paul Hodes have done so much hard work to get so close to beating Jeb Bradley and Charlie Bass and we have all worked so hard to help them get here. But we need to work even harder over these last few days to make sure that when the polls close on November 7, we will have elected two Representatives to Congress will stand up for New Hampshire instead of rubber-stamping the Bush Administration's failed policies in Iraq.

I'm from Pennsylvania. I’ve only been to New Hampshire a few times, so I can't really be an expert on its political scene.

Anyhow, I'm covering competitive U.S. House campaigns for BNN, throughout the nation. Accordingly, I identified the Bass/Hodes campaign and wrote stories about it. The one on the Bass/Hodes contest is linked.

I always welcome comments/reactions, and I try to be as objective as possible.

In addition, you can read ALL of my swing district stories (including the NH CD-2 as well), by cut/pasting this link:
