Meanwhile, days after officially receiving the Republican nomination in Cleveland, the poll shows businessman Donald Trump leads former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton 47.9 percent to 38.5 percent in New Hampshire, with 13.6 percent undecided.
InsideSources tested a negative message for each of the major party’s candidates for Senate. When voters were asked if Ayotte’s intention to vote for Donald Trump without endorsing him influenced their support for Ayotte, 46.7 percent reported that this information had no effect on their potential support for Ayotte, while 34.2 percent claimed it made them less likely to support Ayotte, and 17.5 said this information made them more likely to support Ayotte. Women were more likely to be positively swayed by Ayotte’s position on the Republican nominee than men, who were more likely to report the position had no effect on their support for Ayotte.
