Democrat Maggie Hassan has been a reliable left-wing vote for Chuck Schumer – a fact that appears to displease a growing number of New Hampshire voters. Meanwhile, retired Army Brigadier General Donald Bolduc has been traversing the state with a populist style campaign as a MAGA Republican and an outsider. His numbers have been surging.
According to a Real Clear Politics average of polls, on September 19, he trailed Hassan by 9.5 points. But now, two polls, including a liberal one conducted by St. Anselm College, show him up by one point.
"St. Anselm is a Democrat poll," reiterates Mike Hammond, legislative council to Gun Owners of America (GOA). "If St. Anselm has him one point up, then that probably means that he's going to win. St. Anselm and UNH are the two big polls. They frequently have a 10-point Democratic bias."
AFN has reported that a University of New Hampshire (UNH) poll from April showed Hassan leading Bolduc 47%-46% in a possible matchup.
As for where the candidates stand on the Second Amendment, Hammond says there is no comparison.
"Bolduc is very, very strongly pro-gun," Hammond accounts. "Hassan, of course, is virulently anti-gun."
Hammond says that is the first of many reasons why he hopes Bolduc defeats Hassan on Tuesday.
