The 45th President Donald Trumpmade his way to New Hampshire once again on Monday. His destination: Derry, where he addressed the crowd of tens of thousands at the New England Sports Center.
Trump’s return to the Granite State couldn’t have come at a more opportune time, with him enjoying a commanding lead in the GOP primary race, signaling his potential bid for the anticipated election season next year.
In the fine state of New Hampshire, President Trump boasts an impressive 44% support among GOP voters, as per data from FiveThirtyEight polling dated October 18. Former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley emerges as the runner-up in the same poll, securing a respectable 15% of support. Meanwhile, Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida lags behind, capturing just 11% of the support.
Zooming out to a national scale, President Trump’s lead is even more resounding, as indicated by a recent survey conducted by Premise Data from September 28 to October 2. The survey found Trump ahead by a staggering 45 points among prospective GOP primary voters. What’s truly noteworthy is that Trump also outperforms President Biden in a poll gauging the 2024 general election, leading by an impressive ten-point margin.
Recent reporting has shed light on President Trump’s dominance in the early primary states for the 2024 race. He enjoys substantial leads in key states like Iowa, where he leads by a significant 33.1 points, and South Carolina, where his lead is a commanding 31.5 points, according to additional data from FiveThirtyEight.
The eyes of the nation will turn to Iowa, which is set to hold its caucuses on January 15, making it the first state to cast primary ballots for GOP candidates. New Hampshire also holds a significant position as an “early voting” state, with its primary taking place shortly thereafter.
