Poll: Haley Up, Tied With Trump In New Hampshire
India-West News Desk
CONCORD, NH – In the latest polling ahead of the New Hampshire primary, former President Trump and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley are in a dead heat, each securing 40 percent among likely Republican primary voters in the state, according to a survey by American Research Group Inc. released on January 16.
Compared to December figures, Trump has seen an increase from 33 percent to 40 percent, while Haley has also gained ground, rising from 29 percent to an equal 40 percent by the beginning of January. Meanwhile, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who secured second place in Iowa’s caucuses, holds only 4 percent support among New Hampshire Republicans in this latest poll, as reported by The Hill.
In the Iowa caucuses, Trump emerged as the clear winner with 51 percent of the vote, followed by DeSantis at 21 percent and Haley at 19 percent, based on election data from The Hill/Decision Desk HQ.
Despite her lower standing in Iowa, Haley contends that the New Hampshire primary, scheduled for January 23, is essentially a one-on-one competition between her and the former president. With recent gains in Granite State polling and the endorsement of Governor Chris Sununu, Haley aims to solidify her position against Trump in the upcoming primary.
