Obama lead nears double digits in New Hampshire

{mosads}Since December, Romney shows only a single percentage point improvement in the poll, and the governor is down substantially from the eight-point lead Romney posted over Obama last October.

“Granted, we only have four electoral votes, but they are important electoral votes,” pollster Andy Smith of the University of New Hampshire Survey Center told WMUR.

Still, there are positive signs for Romney. Half of those surveyed said they liked the job Obama was doing, versus 47 percent that said they disapproved – down slightly from a net eight point advantage for Obama in February.

“It’s going to be close throughout,” Smith said. “I think that the state of the economy and what happens with health care are going to be very important in determining who wins this state, but I think we can count on a very, very close race.”
