Ron DeSantis slides to 7% in latest New Hampshire poll

NBD NH DeSantis
The Florida Governor has fallen to 4th place, with 1/7 the support Donald Trump has in the Granite State.

New polling from the Granite State isn’t just the worst there for Ron DeSantis. It’s one of his worst polls anywhere.

The new Emerson College Polling/WHDH poll of New Hampshire voters finds the Florida Governor having slumped to 7%, putting him in a very distant fourth place.

Donald Trump has 49% of voters’ support in the 2024 Republican Primary, leading the field and more than 30 points ahead of second place Nikki Haley, whose 18% is up a staggering 14 points from August.

In third place is former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, with 9%. In fifth place, just two points behind DeSantis, is Vivek Ramaswamy with 5% support.

The new polling casts into doubt DeSantis’ recently expressed confidence that he could ultimately win the Granite State’s Primary early next year.

During an interview on “The Pulse of NH,” DeSantis told host Jack Heath that the more time he spends in the state, the better he does.

“What I found when I’m out is I will say, I will do my spiel, or I’ll just meet with voters, and people come up to me and they’ll say, ‘You flipped me from Trump to you. I’m with you now,’” the Governor said.

The Emerson poll obviously is below his average in the state, which has been pulled down by a series of polls that have shown him in decline. According to the Race to the White House polling average, his 11% is good for third place, behind Trump (46%) and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (15%).

It also is just two points above his worst poll anywhere this cycle.

Polling conducted by Siena College between Sept. 10 and Sept. 13 in New York finds the Governor at a new low, in third place for the first time with just 5% support.

    Tooth ache needs to join Tim Scott in the Losers Lounge. It’s clear the GOP wants to go down the drain with Bonespurs.

    It couldn’t have happened to a worse or more horrid person than moRon DërFascist. MAUAHAHAHAAA! As a FL native I have to say, I am beyond glad to say that when his term is up he will be 100% irrelevant. Find him cleaning sewers and port a potties after that. 😂

    NewsScratch out of New Hampshire, the Granite State: poll of GOP voters proves they have granite between the ears, with 49% of them certified as morons on the Mohs Hardness Scale, and 7% of them determined to be idiots. The rest are just rocks.
    No offense to rocks.

    THanks again to Florida’s taxpayers for footing a substantial part of the cost incurred by the Rhonda Campaign sending Rhonda all over everywhere for meets and greets such that folks can come to realize Rhonda is made of clay.
