Blue Hampshire Indeed

A new ARG New Hampshire poll shows Jeanne Shaheen (who has said she'll decide in September whether to run) trouncing John Sununu in a theoretical rematch for US Senator, 57% to 29%. Given how well-known they both are, opinions are unlikely to change as dramatically as Sununu would need, if those numbers are even close to accurate. Assuming Shaheen runs (and given numbers like that, why wouldn't she?), the GOP might have to just chalk that seat up as a loss.

And if that's the case, they might have to concede the state as a loss in the Presidential race on the same ballot next year. But that may be a foregone conclusion anyway, as the same poll as George W.'s approval rating in the Granite State at an all-time low of -- this is not a typo -- 14 percent.
