When presented with a list of several Republicans, 39% of likely New Hampshire Republican primary voters picked Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis as their first choice to be the 2024 GOP nominee, while 37% selected former President Donald Trump, according to the Granite State Poll from the University of New Hampshire Survey Center.
The results represent a statistical tie as they fall within the survey’s +/- 5.5% margin of sampling error for likely 2024 GOP primary voters.
DeSantis is the only person to poll anywhere near Trump — just 9% selected former Vice President Mike Pence as their top pick, and only 6% chose former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley.
New Hampshire has gone to the Democratic candidate in the last five presidential election cycles, so the eventual GOP nominee would have to snap a long Republican losing streak in order to make the state go red.
In hypothetical head-to-head presidential election matchups for the state, DeSantis performs slightly better against President Joe Biden than Trump does.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
