BEDFORD, NH – Republican U.S. Senate candidate Bryant “Corky” Messner this week won an online voter poll by a more than 3-to-1 margin over his primary opponent.
“It’s reassuring that my message and my mission to return New Hampshire’s conservative values to the U.S. Senate is resonating with Granite State voters,” says Messner. “My thanks go to all who cast a vote.”
GraniteGrok.com’s survey asked readers which of four candidates they’d like to see win the U.S. Senate seat this November: Messner, GOP candidates Don Bolduc and Andy Martin, Democrat incumbent Jeanne Shaheen, or “none of the above.”
Messner captured 74.24% of the 788 votes cast. In second place was Bolduc, with 20.81%, followed by Shaheen with 2.28%, and Martin with 1.27%. “None of the above” received 1.4% of the votes cast.
GraniteGrok is a web-based New Hampshire conservative political forum with a growing and active audience. The poll was limited to one vote per IP address and ran for two-and-a-half days.
