Polls show the former president with double-digit leads over former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley among likely Republican voters. But a recent Marist College survey suggests Haley would perform better against President Biden in a general election in the Granite State.

“It’s a vote not for her so much, but it’s against Trump,” he told Fox News.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton narrowly edged-out Trump in the 2016 election. In 2020, Biden beat Trump by about 7%.

Jessie was still trying to decide who to vote for, a difficult choice since her number one priority is a ceasefire in the Middle East.

Irene, the only voter Fox News interviewed who said she would support Trump, said immigration was among her top priorities.

Trump is expected to hold a last-minute rally Monday night in Laconia alongside his former opponents South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, Vivek Ramaswamy and North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum.
