MANCHESTER, N.H.—A new poll shows Republican Kelly Ayotte widening her lead over Democrat Paul Hodes in New Hampshire's U.S. Senate race.

The WMUR Granite State Poll conducted by the University of New Hampshire shows Ayotte leading Hodes 50 percent to 35 percent. In July, she was slightly ahead, with 45 percent to Hodes' 37 percent.

Five weeks before the election, nearly half of those polled said they haven't decided who will get their vote.

The telephone poll of 515 likely voters was conducted Sept. 23-29 and had a sampling margin of error of 4.3 percentage points.
