In New Hampshire, Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley is four points behind former President Trump, according to a poll released this week; the former president was outraged online.
A December survey conducted by American Research Group Inc. inquired about voters’ preferences in the Republican presidential primary.
The results indicated that Trump secured 33 percent of the support.
Haley’s 29 percent was a noteworthy achievement for the former United Nations ambassador, who seems to have been closing the distance on Trump’s steady lead in the state.
On Friday, Trump conveyed to conservative talk show presenter Hugh Hewitt his lack of concern regarding the poll or Haley’s prospects in the New Hampshire primary election.
He later claimed the poll was fabricated on his social media platform, Truth Social.
“Fake New Hampshire poll was released on Birdbrain. Just another scam! Ratings challenged FoxNews will play it to the hilt. Sununu now one of the least popular governors in the U.S. Real poll to follow.” Trump wrote on his Truth Social platform.
Former New Jersey governor Chris Christie received thirteen percent of the vote in the survey, while entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy and Florida governor Ron DeSantis each received six percent.
Since September, Haley’s support in the early voting state has doubled, according to a second survey conducted by the Saint Anselm College Survey Center.
It estimated that Haley would receive 30% of the probable Republican primary vote, trailing Trump by 14 points.
The survey of 600 probable Republican primary voters was conducted by American Research Group from December 14-20.
