Jun. 23—Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has drawn even with former President Donald Trump among likely New Hampshire Republican primary voters, according to a University of New Hampshire poll.
DeSantis had more support than Trump in head-to-head matchups against President Joe Biden among all likely voters, the UNH Survey Center found in the poll, in which 845 likely voters took part online June 16-20.
In this new Granite State Poll, DeSantis had 39% support, compared to 37% for Trump.
When UNH polled on the same issue last October, Trump led DeSantis, 43%-18%.
Trailing behind the two leading Republicans in the June poll were former Vice President Mike Pence (9%), ex-United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley (6%) and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and South Dakota Gov. Kristen Noem (1% apiece).
The statewide poll’s margin of error was plus or minus 3.2%.
