PPP's newest New Hampshire poll finds Jeanne Shaheen in a pretty strong position...as long as Scott Brown doesn't come across the border to challenge her.
Shaheen has a 49/42 approval rating and leads all of her New Hampshire based potential challengers by double digits. She's up 10 on Charlie Bass at 51/41, 17 on Jim Rubens at 50/33, 19 on Karen Testerman at 50/31, and 22 on Dan Innis at 52/30. She also leads former New Hampshire Senator/Florida Senate candidate Bob Smith 51/35.
The only Republican who really comes close to Shaheen is Brown, who she leads just 48/44. Brown at least breaks even on his favorability in the state at 40%, good numbers in comparison to for instance Bass who's at 28/47. At any rate it looks like Shaheen is in a good place barring the unlikely Brown candidacy.
In a stronger position than Shaheen though is Governor Maggie Hassan. She has a 51/33 approval rating, that's little different from 50/31 in April. That indicates her numbers haven't worn off after the honeymoon from her first getting into office. In addition to strong popularity with Democrats, Hassan's at 50/33 with independents and gets 17% crossover support from Republicans compared to Shaheen's 12%.
