NH poll: DeSantis holds slim lead over Trump with GOP voters in state

Thirty-nine percent of likely Republican primary voters in New Hampshire support Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, while 37% support former President Donald Trump, according to a new poll from the University of New Hampshire Survey Center.

The difference is in the poll’s margin of error.

An October 2021 Center of Inquiry poll showed Trump with a 43% to 18% lead over DeSantis.

Results of the latest New Hampshire poll, released Wednesday:

  • 9% support former Vice President Mike Pence, while 6% support former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley.
  • 50% of likely voters in the state would vote for President Joe Biden in a 2024 showdown with Trump, who trails by 7 points with 43% support in the hypothetical contest.
  • 47% would vote for DeSantis, compared to 46% who say they would vote or Biden in a hypothetical game.

“Trump slipping in pre-primary polls is part of a typical pattern,” said Andrew Smith, director of the survey center. “A party’s losing candidate in the previous election is usually the most well-known person in their party. As the primary approaches, new candidates emerge and attract more media attention, and therefore more publicity. attention of voters, that the losing candidate of the previous election.”

The poll, conducted June 16-20, surveyed 845 likely New Hampshire voters. The margin of error in the full poll is plus or minus 3.2 percentage points. In Republican-only questions, the margin of error is plus or minus 5.5 percentage points.
