A new poll shows U.S. Reps. Carol Shea-Porter and Annie Kuster facing serious challenges as the two Democrats seek re-election in New Hampshire.

In the 1st District, the WMUR Granite State Poll released Monday shows Republican Frank Guinta slightly ahead of Shea-Porter, who was elected in 2006, lost to Guinta in 2010 and regained the seat in 2012. In a matchup with Republican Dan Innis, Shea-Porter remains in the lead.

In the 2nd District, Kuster is slightly ahead of Republican Marilinda Garcia and about even with Gary Lambert. Kuster’s favorability rating remains low, however.

The telephone poll of 584 adults was conducted Jan. 21-26 by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center and had a sampling margin of error of fewer than 6 percentage points in each district.

Expect to see the "twins" running away from Obama care in 14'

Now there's a pair that will beat a full house.

We need more like Carol, not less.

Time to fight back against the Republican lies about Obamacare. In a big way.

" you can keep your plan if you like your plan. PERIOD! - you can keep your doctor if you like your doctor. PERIOD ! - you mean those lies?

Maybe you mean the democrat lies about NObamaKare would create deficit reduction? Maybe you mean the lie about NObamaKare insuring the un-insured? Maybe you mean the lies about each family saving $2500?

Hey.... I like my doctor and I am keeping him, no one lied to me. Other than yourself that is.

If NObama took a lie detector test, impeachment would surely follow.

Waltham, if any politician took a lie detector test, they would all fail. Impeach why, because of lying. Get real.

All politicians lie! There should be a license plate for that! Wait, probably not in NH where the plate nannies rule.
