A new poll shows that Republican Scott Brown has closed a wide gap to make it a possible neck-and-neck race against Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen in New Hampshire.
The WMUR poll found Shaheen leading by 2 points in a match-up with Brown, who last month trailed by 12 points in the same poll.
Shaheen’s current 2-point advantage in within the margin of error, which was released Thursday.
