Frontrunner Trump Maintains Massive Lead Over Haley In NH Poll

Former President Donald Trump has maintained his 17% lead over former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley in the latest New Hampshire poll, with only three days remaining until the state’s primary.

In the latest Saturday morning results, Trump sits at 53%, while Haley jumped 36%. Since the Iowa caucuses on Monday, the race in New Hampshire has remained stable. Each day the tracking poll has been released, the MAGA favorite has been at or above 50%, and his lead over Haley has ranged between 14 and 17 points.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) remains in third place at 7%. Approximately 5% of voters prefer another candidate, are undecided, or refuse to answer.

The poll was conducted on Thursday and Friday evening after Trump received a massive victory in the Iowa caucuses, the first contest on the GOP presidential nominating schedule. After the Monday Iowa caucuses, Saint Anselm College also held a poll with the former president in the lead over Haley.

Additionally, a new survey from Marist College shows the former South Carolina governor performing better than President Biden, than Trump, or DeSantis in hypothetical elections in New Hampshire, a vital battleground state.

The survey indicates Haley is leading Biden by over three points, while former President Trump leads by seven points. On her campaign trail, the GOP presidential candidate repeatedly stated she would outperform Biden in the general election compared to Donald Trump.

In the newest poll, Trump dominated registered Republicans and voters who are conservatives. Haley took the lead among moderates and independents.

“Haley’s had a tough week: underperforming in Iowa, trying to answer Trump’s attacks on her positions on social security and immigration, and the recent Ramaswamy endorsement of Trump helping him with younger GOP voters,” David Patheologos, director of the Suffolk University Political Research Center in Boston said in a statement this week.

After New Hampshire, the next state to vote is South Carolina, Haley’s state. With Trump maintaining such a massive lead despite constant legal attacks from the left, many think Haley needs to win New Hampshire to maintain even the slightest contest.

Meanwhile, ahead of the New Hampshire primary, the former president slams Haley on Truth Social. “She’s weak on China, Russia, Borders, and Crime, but never saw a war she didn’t like,” he said in a post.
