Concord, N.H. - A new UNH poll released today shows that after nearly 20 months of Governor Sununu in office, 73 percent of voters are still undecided in this year’s gubernatorial election. Collectively, in matchups against Democratic gubernatorial candidates, support of Sununu has dropped below 50 percent, and both Democratic candidates have seen an increase in support across the state.
NHDP Chairman Ray Buckley issued the following statement:
“Governor Sununu’s unfavorability rating will continue to grow as people learn of his efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, take hundreds of millions of dollars away public schools, and promote tax cuts for the already wealthy. If I were a governor for almost 20 months, I would be embarrassed if 73 percent of voters were still undecided about my re-election.
“We need someone in the Corner Office who will care about the health and well-being of all Granite Staters, the safety of our children in classrooms, and bringing good-paying jobs to boost our economy to benefit everyone. Sununu is making himself and his inner-circle of corporate donors richer on the backs of New Hampshire families. Once people see the truth about Sununu, they’ll vote for the values that will strengthen our state.
“Both of our gubernatorial candidates are gaining momentum, and it’s building every minute with each passing day. Our events have drawn people from all over looking to get involved and stand up for New Hampshire families. I’m confident that the grassroots enthusiasm and organization we’re seeing is more than enough to kick Sununu out of office this November.”
