Trump leads widely in the New Hampshire poll before primary

As per a recent poll, former President Trump has a significant lead in recent Hampshire ahead of the state’s Republican presidential primary next week.

According to a new poll conducted by the Saint Anselm College Survey Center, Trump has a 52 percent support rate among potential GOP primary voters in New Hampshire.

That is roughly the same amount he received in Monday’s Iowa caucuses, which he easily won with 51 percent. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) finished in a distant second, closely followed by former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley.

According to the New Hampshire poll, 51 percent of respondents said they had changed their minds about who they would vote for after the Iowa caucuses now back Trump.

At the same time, 60 percent of respondents say they’ve changed their minds about who they support as a result of recent candidate departures, such as former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) last week and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy on Monday, now back Haley.

According to the Saint Anselm survey, Haley has 38 percent of the state’s support, 14 points less than Trump.

This contrasts with an American Research Group poll, which saw Haley and Trump tied at 40% each ahead of the first-in-the-nation primary next week.

According to the most recent polling averages from Decision Desk HQ and The Hill, Trump has 43 percent of the state’s support, followed by Haley with 34 percent and DeSantis with over 6 percent.

According to New Hampshire Institute of Politics Executive Director Neil Levesque, Christie and Ramaswamy’s withdrawal from the campaign “left the field” open for Trump, DeSantis, and Haley.

“Trump and Haley have split the former candidates’ supporters…” However, Haley is still trailing by a wide margin as she faces questions about her choice to boycott the New Hampshire debate, which may deny her the best remaining opportunity to close the deal with the people she needs to catch up to the front runner,” Levesque said.

Haley stated after Iowa that she would not attend the planned CNN and ABC debates in New Hampshire unless Trump, who has skipped all of the party’s debates thus far, did. Both networks canceled their events.

DeSantis received only 6% support in the Anselm poll, which was constant from the previous survey, whereas Haley and Trump both saw an increase over that time.

The poll was conducted on January 16, a day after the Iowa caucuses, and had a margin of error of plus or minus 2.6 percent. It queried 1,398 likely New Hampshire Republican presidential primary voters.
