Rasmussen Reports released a new poll today about the 2010 Senate race showing Republican Kelly Ayotte with a decent sized lead: ["Ayotte Leads Hodes 46% to 38% in 2010 New Hampshire Senate Match-Up"].
Both Ayotte and Rep. Paul Hodes garner 81 percent each from their respective parties. But Ayotte leads the independent vote by more than 14 percent, according to the poll.
Not surprisingly, voters are split almost in half about the president's health care proposal, with 72 percent saying they think the middle class will be taxed to cover the costs of the plan. Sixty four percent say the plan will increase the deficit while only 28 percent believe it will make health care better.
