Trump Destroys the Competition in New Hampshire

Donald Trump topped the most recent New Hampshire poll by NH1/Reach. Trump tripled the score of his nearest opponent, demonstrating that he is still the clear-cut frontrunner for the Republicans.

Which Republican candidate would you vote for?

  • Donald Trump – 32%
  • John Kasich – 12%
  • Jeb Bush – 12%
  • Chris Christie – 11%
  • Ted Cruz – 10%
  • Marco Rubio – 9%

Trump’s triple digit lead over the realistic candidates is a healthy sign for the billionaire. He continues to dominate Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz in every significant poll.

The likes of John Kasich, Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, and other fringe candidates may have performed moderately well in this poll, but they frequently struggle to obtain tangible results in other ones and are nothing more than a distraction at this point in the election cycle.

Cruz is caught in the birther movement at the moment. He is having trouble shrugging off claims that he cannot run for president due to his Canadian birth, a movement that was recently propelled by Trump.

Rubio still hovers around third place, but he has failed to make any noise in recent polls and his campaign has been relatively quiet. He could still upset Trump if he can build momentum. However, he will need to act quickly as time is quickly running out.
