A new survey from New England College has President Obama leading Mitt Romney by 6 percentage points in New Hampshire, 49.5 percent to 44.4 percent.
Obama leads by 10 points with independents, who make up a plurality of the electorate in the Granite State. He also has a wide lead with women. “If Governor Romney is going to close the gap on the President he will need to perform significantly better among women,” polling institute director Ben Tafoya said.
An NBC/WSJ/Marist survey from New Hampshire earlier this week found Obama up by 2 points, within the margin of error.
