Republican Scott Brown leads Democratic incumbent Sen. Jeanne Shaheen by a point and a half in the New Hampshire Senate race with just one week to go, according to a New England College poll released Monday night.

Brown leads with 48.3 percent support to Shaheen’s 46.8 percent support, according to the poll. 2.4 percent of those polled are still unsure about who to support, and 2.5 percent want a different candidate altogether.

Brown expanded his lead from the last New England College poll conducted Oct. 16, in which he led Shaheen 47.7 percent to 47.3 percent.

The margin of error for the Senate race polling was 2.91 percentage points.
