At the state level, incumbent New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu remains broadly popular among registered voters, with a 55 percent job approval rating and just 24 percent disapproving. Sununu’s +31 percent net approval rating is reflected in his head-to-head numbers against a generic Democratic candidate. Sununu leads a generic Democrat 46 to 33 percent. However, the undecided number—20 percent—is significant.
“Despite President Trump’s poor poll numbers, Chris Sununu continues to show real strength,” Graham said. “He’s got the support of a majority of unaffiliated voters (52 percent), a significant number of Democrats (35 percent) and he is even slightly more popular among New Hampshire Republicans (77-72 percent) than President Trump.”
Sununu’s performance in the NHJournal poll down slightly from a recent Morning Consult poll, which found an approval rating of 61/22 and ranked him as America’s fourth most popular governor.
