Senators Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) And Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) Each voted 2% or less, as did South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem. Notably, Pence was the only one not to have a net positive favor among likely primary voters, further evidence that Republicans soured on him in the wake of the events of January 6.
Nine percent of respondents said their first choice was someone other than those named by pollsters, and 10 percent said they had not made up their minds. The poll questioned 770 likely Republican primary voters between July 15 and 19 and has a 3.5 percent margin of error.
The New Hampshire results largely match other early polls in the Republican landscape of 2024, with the former president breaking ground and DeSantis standing a notch above if Trump is removed from the photo.
Almost 70% of New Hampshire Republicans polled said they wanted Trump to run again in 2024. This enthusiasm was not shared by those outside the GOP; the poll found that only 18% of independents and 1% of Democrats who were also polled in the poll supported another Trump candidacy.
