As the U.S. presidential race intensifies, Republican candidate Nikki Haley is narrowing the gap with former President Donald Trump in the polls. Recent primary polls in New Hampshire show Haley gaining four points on the frontrunner, Trump. This raises the intriguing prospect: could Haley potentially become the first female and first Indian-American president of the United States?
Released on December 21, the poll suggested that 33% of New Hampshire GOP voters favor Trump, while 29% support the former South Carolina governor. Trump took to his Truth Social platform, dismissing the poll as “Fake” and another deceptive attempt.Referring to New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu’s endorsement of Haley, Trump remarked, “Sununu now one of the least popular governors in the US. Real poll to follow.
“While national polls continue to depict Trump in the lead among Republicans, notable donors, including Reid Hoffman, co-founder of LinkedIn, have recently shifted their support toward Haley. Haley’s rising poll numbers align with her strong performances in debates.The latest polls have also widened the gap between Haley and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who had been closely matched for months. In the recent surveys, DeSantis secured 6% support.
