Former President Donald Trump, the current front-runner for the 2024 Republican presidential primary, recently took to social media to voice his criticism of a new poll focusing on the important state of New Hampshire.
The poll, conducted by the American Research Group, revealed that GOP rival Nikki Haley had achieved her highest level of support in New Hampshire so far, garnering 29% compared to Trump’s 33%.
This latest poll provides further evidence of Haley’s growing momentum in the race. Haley, a former South Carolina governor and ex-ambassador to the United Nations, has been the target of some derogatory remarks from Trump, including referring to her as “birdbrain.” A previous New Hampshire survey from earlier this week also indicated that Haley was gaining ground on Trump, although she still trailed him by 15 points. Additionally, an Iowa poll suggested that her standing in that crucial state was also improving.
In addition to Haley and Trump, the American Research Group survey also showed former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie with 13% support, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis with 6% support, and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy with 5% support.
The Republican presidential primary in New Hampshire is scheduled to take place on January 23, just eight days after the first-in-the-nation caucuses in Iowa.
