A new Granite State Poll conducted by the UNH Survey Center puts Gov. Chris Sununu in a strong position with the election a month-and-a-half away as he gets a campaign visit from former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley on Thursday.
The poll released Wednesday gives the governor a 55%-37% lead over Democratic challenger state Sen. Tom Sherman among all those surveyed with 8% undecided.
