CONCORD, NH — More polls have been released showing solid results for incumbent officeholders in New Hampshire.

An Emerson College/7News poll released Thursday showed Gov. Chris Sununu, a Republican, as well as Democrat U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, with leads over their opponents.

Sununu, according to the poll, had a 15-point lead against state Sen. Dan Feltes, a Democrat, which is a bit closer than the 27 percent lead reported earlier this week in the University of Massachusetts-Lowell poll. But for Bryant “Corky” Messner, a Republican challenging Shaheen, the numbers are about the same: The Emerson College/7News poll shows Shaheen with a 15 percent lead, too. The U-Mass/Lowell poll gave her a 17-point lead.

Vice President Joe Biden also has a 7 percent lead over President Donald Trump. But the pollsters noted there is an enthusiasm gap is seen between the presidential candidates with three-quarters of Trump voters saying they are

Imagine Tom Brady slumping and falling off the bench as he laughed with his New England Patriots teammates.

It’s a new era in New England with Cam Newton, but it’s starting well. The Patriots improved to 2-1 with a decisive 36-20 win over the Las Vegas Raiders. Newton was solid again, with 162 passing yards and a touchdown pass, and 27 yards rushing.

He also will have more fun than the business-like Patriots are used to. If this doesn’t become a sensation on the internet, then the internet has failed:

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick didn’t confirm that Cam Newton will start at quarterback in the season opener against the Dolphins when he spoke to reporters on Friday, but Newton certainly sounded like the starting quarterback when he held his own video conference.
