American Greatness Poll: Trump Leads DeSantis by 21 Percent in New Hampshire

Among likely GOP primary voters in New Hampshire, former President Donald Trump holds a 21-point lead over Governor Ron DeSantis, 39 percent to 18 percent. New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu is virtually tied with DeSantis for second place, garnering 17 percent of the vote.

Although Sununu is competing with DeSantis for the “not Trump” vote, among those who describe themselves as “very likely” voters, DeSantis leads Sununu by six points, 19 percent to 13 percent. Trump leads both men among these voters with 45%.

New Hampshire GOP voters prefer Trump over DeSantis to improve the economy (+41 percent) and oppose far-left progressives (+19 percent). Voters also say that Trump cares about their needs and concerns more than DeSantis by a 17-point margin.

The top issues for New Hampshire GOP primary voters are border security (22 percent), liberal politicians in D.C. (21 percent), and taxes/cost of living (16 percent.)

The poll from National Research Inc. and commissioned by American Greatness surveyed 500 likely Republican primary voters in the state of New Hampshire using live telephone interviews (landline and cell) and text-to-online.

The survey was conducted on May 15-17. The margin of error is +/- 4.38 percent.
