Trump's lead over DeSantis, other GOP 2024 presidential candidates narrows in key early state: poll - Joggingvideo.com

Trump's lead over DeSantis, other GOP 2024 presidential candidates narrows in key early state: poll

A new poll in New Hampshire suggests that former President Donald Trump’s large double-digit lead over his GOP rivals may be shrinking in the state that holds the first primary and second overall contest in the Republican presidential nominating calendar.

According to a University of New Hampshire Survey Center poll released on Tuesday, Trump enjoys the support of 37% of likely Republican presidential primary voters in the Granite State. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis stands at 23%, with the rest of the large field of contenders polling in the single digits.

Trump’s 14-point lead over DeSantis is down from a 20-point margin in the previous UNH survey, which was conducted in April before the Florida governor launched his presidential campaign.

Former U.N. Ambassador and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley and entrepreneur and political commentator Vivek Ramaswamy both registered at 5%, with everyone else at 1% or less in the survey.

Trump, who in November launched his third straight White House run, has made four trips to New Hampshire this year. He and DeSantis held competing events in the state in late June. DeSantis returned to New Hampshire on July 4 to march in two Independence Day parades.

During his stop in the state three weeks ago, Trump formally opened his campaign’s New Hampshire headquarters and his aides also unveiled their initial grassroots leadership team in the state.

The UNH poll questioned 898 likely Republican primary voters, with a sampling error of plus or minus 3.3 percentage points. The survey was conducted prior to Tuesday’s news that the former president had been informed he’s a target of a probe into the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol and efforts to overturn the 2020 election.
