It is safe to say that President Donald Trump has conquered New Hampshire in terms of the 2024 Republican primary, as the newest polling data has demonstrated a nearly 40-point gap between the 45th president and a distant Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla.
According to data from NMB Research, Trump has captured 47 percent of New Hampshire GOP voters’ support, while DeSantis has stagnated at just 10 percent. Surprisingly, this ties DeSantis with former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, who also accrued 10 percent of support.
In fourth place, according to their survey, was another tie between former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and businessman Vivek Ramaswamy, who both earned eight percent of support.
New Hampshire is considered an important part of the GOP primary battle due to its “first in the nation” status in the primary season.
In August, Trump visited the Granite State and spoke to supporters there, announcing the establishment of a new veterans’ coalition in New Hampshire, spearheaded by war veteran and Rep. Brian Mast, R-Fla.
His appearance in Windham last month drew countless supporters to the local area, where eager Republican voters lined up for hours in the rain just to catch a glimpse of the 45th president.
Nationwide, Trump is unquestionably the dominant frontrunner for the 2024 Republican primary nomination. For example, a mainstream poll from the Wall Street Journal demonstrated the president’s strong position to win next year, revealing a whopping 46-point lead over DeSantis. Trump gained 11 points in their poll since April, while DeSantis lost 11 points.
The 45th president has steadily gained momentum in the GOP primary battle throughout 2023, increasing his lead with every indictment since this spring.
Further, he has been indicted on four major cases this year and has successfully fundraised millions of dollars in the wake of each subsequent arraignment or arrest.
