Poll: Trump Leads Carson, Rubio in New Hampshire
The GOP race continues to heat up. In the latest New Hampshire poll, Donald Trump is leading both Ben Carson and Marco Rubio.
According to the numbers, Trump secured 22 percent of the vote, while Carson and Rubio netted 11 percent each.
They’re followed by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz at 8%, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Ohio Gov. John Kasich at 7% each, and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul at 5% each.
Carly Fiorina gets 3% support and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham is at 2%. No other candidates top 1%.
The poll is the first survey of New Hampshire voters conducted after Friday’s attacks in Paris.
The survey found that Rubio benefited most from his performance in the fourth Republican primary debate, hosted by Fox Business Network on Nov. 10, with 36% saying he did the best job.
Hurt the most by the debate was Kasich, who 26% said did the worst. He was followed by Trump at 20% and Bush at 16%.
The survey of 405 likely New Hampshire Republican primary voters was conducted November 14-15 by The MassINC Polling Group. The margin of error is plus or minus 4.9 points. It was sponsored by WBUR, a National Public Radio affiliate in the Boston area.
