Nikki Haley Gains Support in New Hampshire Poll
Nikki Haley earns significant support with 29% in New Hampshire poll. Speculation grows on potential for increased backing and challenge to Trump.
Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley is making waves in the race for the White House, earning significant support in a recent poll focused on the crucial state of New Hampshire. Despite facing stiff competition from former President Donald Trump, Haley has secured an impressive 29% support in the CBS News/YouGov poll released on Sunday, while Trump maintains a considerable lead with 44%.
The poll's results have sparked speculation about Haley's potential for increased support if other Republican candidates were to drop out of the race. Liam Donovan, a former GOP operative and current principal at law and lobbying firm Bracewell, expressed this sentiment on social media, specifically highlighting former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who received 10% support in the poll.
Other notable contenders in the poll include Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis with 11%, entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy with 5%, and former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson with 1%.
With New Hampshire's Republican presidential primary set for January 23, just eight days after Iowa's first-in-the-nation caucuses, the race is heating up. Observers are keeping a close eye on Haley's momentum and her potential to challenge Trump's dominance.
