Poll Finds Tightening GOP Race in New Hampshire
The latest GOP poll released on Friday has revealed a tight race in New Hampshire.
The poll was released by Suffolk University/Boston Globe. Donald Trump dominated the vote with 29 percent support, while Marco Rubio took over second place with 19 percent.
The Hill reports:
John Kasich took 13 percent, followed by Jeb Bush at 10 percent, Ted Cruz at 7 percent and Chris Christie at 5 percent.
It’s the latest poll to find Rubio surging in the Granite State following his third-place finish in the Iowa caucuses early this week.
An NBC/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll released Friday similarly had the Florida senator in second, with 17 percent, behind Trump, who took 30 percent in that poll.
Trump finished second in Iowa despite leading in polls of the state. He has enjoyed a massive lead in New Hampshire for months, and the state’s primary on Tuesday is considered critical for his campaign.
With Trump the favorite to win New Hampshire, other candidates are aiming for a strong showing that could help them stay in the race.
The Suffolk University/Boston Globe poll of 500 likely GOP primary voters was conducted Feb. 3-4 with a margin of error of 4.4 points.
The WBUR poll of 410 likely GOP primary voters was conducted Feb. 2-4 with a margin of error of 4.9 points.
