In a poll conducted by NMB Research, it seems that Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, has caught up to the oh-so-charming Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. While Trump still enjoys a whopping 30-point lead over his challengers, Haley and DeSantis have miraculously tied at 10 percent. It’s a race to the finish line…or at least the starting line.
But wait, there’s more! Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and the entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy are also vying for a piece of the Republican pie, as they both come in at a respectable 8 percent. It seems like the primary stage is starting to fill up with characters. Can we please have some popcorn?
Unfortunately for Haley, her second-choice ballot game is not as strong. It appears that DeSantis still manages to snag the lead with 20 percent of voters claiming him as their number two pick. Ramaswamy comes in second place with 18 percent, while poor Haley lags behind at a mere 15 percent. Looks like the competition is heating up, folks!
Now, let’s not get too carried away with these numbers. RealClearPolitics’s average of the New Hampshire Republican primary shows DeSantis behind Trump with just 13.3 percent, while Haley is practically scraping the bottom of the barrel at a laughable 3.8 percent. The NMB poll is clearly an outlier, folks. Sorry, Haley fans, but maybe it’s time to reconsider your options.
In a desperate attempt to gain some traction, Haley’s campaign has announced that she is “intensely focused on the state” of New Hampshire. Wow, what a revelation! In a shocking turn of events, a presidential candidate is actually campaigning in the state where the primary is taking place. Who would have thought? But hey, at least she’s making an effort, right?
In the meantime, Nikki Haley continues her busy itinerary of grassroots events, attempting to win the hearts of the Granite State. Will she succeed in her quest for “tough, no-nonsense leadership”? Only time will tell, my friends. So grab your map of the United States and place your bets. The New Hampshire Republican primary is just getting started, and it’s bound to be an entertaining show!
