A new public opinion poll shows Congressman Bernie Sanders with a twenty one point lead over Republican Richard Tarrant in the race for the US Senate.
The telephone survey of 600 likely voters on Wednesday and Thursday of last week says Sanders has 56% support to Tarrant’s 35%. It also says nine percent of voters are undecided.
American Research Group of Manchester, New Hampshire, conducted the poll, which had a margin of error of plus or minus four percentage points.
The poll also found Governor Jim Douglas with lead in his bid for re-election. The poll says Douglas has 47% support to 36% for Scudder Parker. There were 15% undecided.
But there’s no clear leader in the race for the U.S. House. Republican Martha Rainville has 42% and Democrat Peter Welch 41%. Sixteen percent are undecided in that race.
