The latest poll results from Monmouth University show that President Trump is holding a commanding lead in New Hampshire for the upcoming general election. Trump leads with a whopping 43% of the vote, compared to Joe Biden’s 30% and Howie Hawkins’ 9%, with just 8% undecided.
The news is a boost for Trump’s re-election hopes in a state that he narrowly lost in the 2016 election. The lead is bolstered by an increased support from independent voters, who backed Trump with a 38% to 28% edge over Biden.
It’s also a sign that former South Carolina governor, Nikki Haley, is gaining momentum in the Republican primary. According to the poll, she has 11% support, which is 1% higher than it was in September. It’s not yet enough to put her in the lead, but she is clearly gaining support over the other GOP candidates in the race.
In addition, the poll also showed that Trump is highly popular among Republican voters in New Hampshire, with an approval rating of 80%. This is an increase of 8% since September, and suggests that his supporters are sticking with him.
Overall, the trend in New Hampshire suggests that Donald Trump is poised to strengthen his hand in the state and potentially pave the way for a victory in November. However, there is still time for the other candidates to make their case and try to close the gap. As the race progresses, the outcome is becoming increasingly clear: President Trump is the one to beat.
