In a stunning display of Republican loyalty, former President Donald Trump is dominating the race in New Hampshire, leaving his competitors in the dust. A recent poll conducted by Suffolk University/Boston Globe/NBC-10 shows Trump with a comfortable 16-point lead over the other contenders. The MAGA train is full steam ahead!
This news must be devastating for former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, who trails behind Trump with a measly 34% of support. It seems her attempts to distance herself from the former president and answer his attacks on her positions have not paid off. Maybe it’s time to rethink her strategy and embrace the fact that Republicans want a strong leader like Trump at the helm.

Meanwhile, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is barely hanging on with a dismal 5% of support. It’s a tough blow for the governor who had invested so much in Iowa, only to be crushed by Trump’s overwhelming victory. Perhaps it’s time for DeSantis to reassess his campaign and realize that he simply can’t compete with the Trump juggernaut.
The fact that support for Trump and Haley has risen since the previous poll is a clear indication that Republicans are longing for Trump’s leadership once again. They appreciate his strong stance on issues like Social Security and immigration, despite the attacks thrown at him. Trump’s endorsements, including the recent one from Vivek Ramaswamy, have solidified his support among younger GOP voters. It’s clear that Trump’s appeal is as strong as ever.
While there is still time for Haley to close the gap with undecided voters or even sway some Trump supporters, it’s an uphill battle for her. Trump has a loyal base that is unmatched in the current Republican field. It’s going to take a miracle for Haley to pull ahead and surpass Trump, but stranger things have happened in politics.
As the RealClearPolitics average for the New Hampshire primary indicates, Trump is not only leading in this state but also maintaining a comfortable lead across other polls. Republicans want a leader who will fight for their conservative values and deliver real results. Trump has proven himself to be that leader time and time again. It’s no wonder he has the support of prominent figures like New Hampshire GOP Gov. Chris Sununu.
In the end, it will be interesting to see how the Republican primary unfolds. Will Haley be able to close the gap and give Trump a run for his money? Or will Trump’s dominance continue to grow? One thing is for sure, Trump’s popularity among conservatives is unwavering, and the other contenders have a tough road ahead of them if they want to dethrone the king.
