Survey: Most influencers expect Sununu to take on Hassan

Most Granite State influencers expect Republican Gov. Chris Sununu to challenge incumbent Democratic U.S. Senator Maggie Hassan when she is up for reelection in 2022. That’s according to a recent HynesSight Influencer Survey of New Hampshire political insiders.

Almost 68% of influencers responded that they think Sununu will run for Senate. Only 32% said they do not think he will run for Senate.

Sununu won reelection in November 2020 with over 65% of the vote. Hassan won the U.S. Senate seat she currently holds in 2016 by a little more than 1,000 votes over then-incumbent Sen. Kelly Ayotte, a Republican.


The HynesSite Influencer Survey was conducted via email and social media during the New Year weekend. Respondents are New Hampshire political insiders. Responses are and will always remain anonymous.
