The 75th Governor of New Hampshire and current Romney adviser John Sununu had strong words for a recent WMUR/University of New Hampshire poll that shows Obama winning handily with 54 percent of the vote to Romney’s 39 percent.

On The Daily Rundown with Chuck Todd on MSNBC, Sununu claimed the survey was skewed.

"I believe it's head-to-head in New Hampshire,” Sununu said. "I've seen enough other polls to tell you that that is a piece of garbage."

Sununu continued to dismiss the poll, expressing full confidence in his candidate.

"This race in New Hampshire will be won by Mitt Romney by 2 to 3 points," Mr. Sununu said. "I've said that all along, and I'm willing to say that publicly and stick by it, and I know that that poll [of] 15 points is absolutely invalid."

The former New Hampshire governor remained optimistic about Romney’s chances, referring to the Carter-Reagan 1980 campaign to show how elections can be won in the last couple of months, especially with three upcoming debates.

“There’s a lot that can happen in five weeks.”
