Is Kelly Ayotte Winning the New Hampshire Senate Race?

ayotteIn the closely watched battleground state of New Hampshire, incumbent Republican Kelly Ayotte is defending her seat against Democratic challenger Maggie Hassan.

As of Monday afternoon, the polls gave Ayotte a slight edge. RealClearPolitics average of recent polls showed Ayotte ahead with a 1.5-point lead, and FiveThirtyEight gave her a 52.1% chance of holding on to her seat.

Like many Republicans, Ayotte has had difficulty grappling with the man at the top of the ticket.

She said that Trump was a good role model for children days before the “grab ’em by the pussy” video leaked. She then said that the comments were “totally inappropriate and offensive.” In a Nov. 2 interview, she said that neither Clinton nor Trump exhibited good character.

The polls close at 7:00 p.m. eastern time. We will update with the reported results as soon as they come in.
