Former governor receives 13% support among likely primary voters
Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has secured the third position among likely Republican primary voters in New Hampshire, with 13% support. This puts him ahead of other contenders who garnered less support. The poll conducted by the American Research Group revealed interesting insights into the preferences of voters in the upcoming primary.
Vivek Ramaswamy and Asa Hutchinson receive modest support
Vivek Ramaswamy managed to secure 5% support, while only 1% of likely Republican primary voters expressed their preference for former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson. These results indicate a clear divide among voters in New Hampshire.
Undecided voters make up a significant portion
The survey highlighted that 12% of respondents remained undecided, indicating that the race is far from decided. It is essential for the candidates to appeal to these undecided voters in order to gain an advantage.
Trump and Haley lead among party affiliations
When examining party affiliations, the poll found that 39% of registered New Hampshire Republicans expressed their support for former President Donald Trump, while 27% of registered GOP voters favored former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley. Among undeclared voters, Trump received 24% support, while Haley garnered 33%.
Haley gains momentum as Iowa caucuses approach
With less than a month until the January 15 Iowa caucuses, Nikki Haley is emerging as a strong contender, particularly against Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. Her recent surge in polling in New Hampshire, where the primary is scheduled for January 23, indicates growing support for her campaign. Haley received a significant endorsement from New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu earlier this month. In contrast, DeSantis has focused his efforts on Iowa, securing an endorsement from Gov. Kim Reynolds in November.
Trump maintains a substantial lead nationwide
Nationwide, a recent poll revealed that former President Donald Trump continues to hold a commanding lead over his GOP rivals, with the support of 69% of Republican primary voters. DeSantis and Haley trail behind with 12% and 9% support, respectively. Trump’s continued popularity suggests that he remains a dominant force within the Republican Party.
These poll results provide valuable insights into the preferences of likely Republican primary voters in New Hampshire. As the primary approaches, candidates must work diligently to secure support from undecided voters and gain an edge in this competitive race.
