What the Polls Say About Nikki Haley and Donald Trump in the Race for the Republican Election
Nikki Haley is concentrating on winning over moderate and independent votes to win the Republican primary, while Donald Trump continues to have significant support from extreme Republicans.
Former President Donald Trump has emerged as the clear frontrunner among voters in New Hampshire, defeating his single surviving challenger, Nikki Haley. This comes as the campaign for the Republican nomination for president is narrowing down to a head-to-head showdown.
Nikki Haley, a former governor of South Carolina, is trailing behind Donald Trump in the campaign for the presidency with 34% of the vote, according to surveys conducted by The Washington Post. Trump has a substantial lead with 52% of the candidates’ support.
Comparing the results of the most recent CNN/UNH survey to those from the beginning of January, it is clear that support for both Mr. Trump and Ms. Haley has significantly increased. During the prior survey, Mr. Trump received 39% of the vote, while Ms. Haley received 32% of the vote. The trend of increasing support for both candidates may be attributed to the consolidation of the field, which has resulted in prominent rivals withdrawing from the race. Even though Nikki Haley has made significant progress since the end of summer, Donald Trump continues to have a commanding advantage, and the distance between them has grown to a margin of more than ten percent.
Although Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida, received eight percent of the vote in the most recent survey, this was before he abruptly decided to cease his campaign operations. Nikki Haley’s support nearly quadrupled from 18 percent in November, which may have been a result of Chris Christie’s decision to resign from the race. Donald Trump may have gained momentum as a result of Vivek Ramaswamy’s endorsement, and he may receive more support as a result of the departure of Mr. DeSantis, who backed Mr. Trump to begin with.
Nikki Haley is concentrating on winning over moderate and independent votes to win the Republican primary, while Donald Trump continues to have significant support from extreme Republicans. As far as Mr. Haley is concerned, New Hampshire presents the best potential for him to slow down Mr. Trump’s momentum. In order to improve her prospects of defeating Mr. Trump, she is counting on a huge turnout of people who are not affiliated with either party.
However, there is not much evidence to suggest that there has been a significant movement in support for her since she finished in third place in the Iowa caucuses.
There are only a few days left until the primary election, and almost one in five prospective Republican voters have not yet made up their mind either way. Fifty-one percent of this group is inclined to favor Ms. Haley, followed by twenty-eight percent for Mr. Trump and fourteen percent for Mr. DeSantis. On the other hand, given that the New Hampshire Republican presidential primary appears to be tilting in favor of Mr. Trump, the outcome of the election that will take place on Tuesday will most likely confirm his position as the dominating force in the campaign for the Republican nomination for the elections during the year 2024.
