THE DOWNSIDE OF LATE PRIMARIES:

Ayotte's Unfavorable Ratings Rising In UNH Poll (Steven Shepard, July 28, 2010, Hotline)

The Granite State Poll, conducted by the UNH Survey Center, shows Ayotte leading Hodes among likely voters, 45-37%. Binnie leads Hodes by a smaller margin, 41-38%.

While Hodes still finds himself behind the two leading GOP candidates, he has cut Ayotte's lead nearly in half over the past few months [...]

While opinions of Hodes are stagnant since April, Ayotte's unfavorable rating has doubled over that time period. The rise in her disapproval ratings coincide with Sarah Palin's endorsement of her candidacy, a move that boosted her stature in the primary but likely cost her support with non-conservative voters.


It's nice to be able to switch from the stuff you have to do for the base to the stuff with broad electoral appeal a bit earlier in the year.
