Sarah Palin’s endorsement of Kelly Ayotte for U.S. Senate from New Hampshire appears to be backfiring. Public Policy Polling shows that support for Ayotte from moderates has wanted since the Palin nod.

The Palin endorsement may well be playing a role in this. 51% of voters in the state say they’re less likely to back a Palin endorsed candidate to only 26% who say that support would make them more inclined to vote for someone. Among moderates that widens to 65% who say a Palin endorsement would turn them off to 14% who it would make more supportive.

Moderates are the largest voting block in New Hampshire, representing 47% of the vote.

[Democratic candidate Paul] Hodes’ lead with them has expanded from just 8 points at 47-39 in April to now 21 points at 51-30. Ayotte’s favorability with them has gone from +5 at 32/27 to -19 at 27/46.
