Donald Trump tops the polls in New Hampshire, while Ben Carson slipped away four percent. Marco Rubio is on fire at the moment, tied with the former surgeon for second position, says CNN.
Dr. Ben Carson’s popularity is currently falling, while Trump leads the race
Donald Trump and Marco Rubio are rising and Ben Carson is dropping in New Hampshire, according to a new WBUR poll. Although he didn’t excel in the last Republican debate, Donald Trump leads the way in this race for the party nominee with 22% support, up four percentage points from the same poll two weeks earlier.
According to the same source, Carson and Rubio are tied for second at 11% each. But both have suffered changes in their popularity. While Rubio, the Florida senator, gained two points, Carson, the retired neurosurgeon, lost four points. They are followed in the poll by Ted Cruz at 8%, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Ohio Gov. John Kasich at 7% each, and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul at 5% each. Fewer support received Carly Fiorina with 3% and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham with 2%.
Marco Rubio’s performance in the latest debate boosted his popularity among voters
The poll conducted by WBUR is so important because it came after Friday’s attacks in Paris. Rubio’s performance at the Nov. 10 Republican debate made 36% of those completing the survey say that he was the best one on stage. The worst underperformer was Kasich with 26% of the people saying so, while 20% said that Donald Trump showed weaknesses during the latest republican debate. Despite this overview, the businessman is well ahead of the Florida senator
According to CNN, the survey numbered 405 likely New Hampshire Republican primary voters and was conducted on November 14-15 by The MassINC Polling Group. The margin of error is plus or minus 4.9 points.
