Yet another New Hampshire poll finds Ron DeSantis in single digits

Still, it's better for the Governor than another poll that came out Tuesday.

Granite State surveys continue to show a rocky road ahead for Ron DeSantis in the first-in-the-nation Primary state.

However, even though the Florida Governor is still below double digits in the latest survey of 1,000 New Hampshire voters from Suffolk University and the Boston Globe, the numbers here are actually better for him than some recent surveys.

DeSantis is cemented in fourth place in this poll, with 8%. This puts him well ahead of fifth place Vivek Ramaswamy (2%) and within striking distance of third-place Chris Christie (12%).

He’s way behind second place Nikki Haley (26%) and former President Donald Trump, who leads with 46% support.

DeSantis struggles most with early Generation X voters and late Boomers, with 4% support among those voters aged 50 to 64. He also isn’t the choice of those with high school diplomas or less, with just 3% support among that cohort.

DeSantis is usually the top second choice candidate, but here it’s Ramaswamy, whose 19% is 2 points ahead of the Governor.

Though fourth place certainly is underwhelming, the Suffolk survey is more positive for DeSantis than the University of New Hampshire poll also released on Tuesday. That survey had him in fifth place with 5% support.

    Gancarski doing work in New Hampshire and Vermont. He is about as much of a Republican as I am a Hamas terrorist.

    DeSantis the best Presidential candidate. The people of Pennsylvania need more time to do their homework. The MSM is trying to take him out because he is conservative nor is he a donor puppet.

    Chris Christie is in it for the uniparty and Lincoln project Rs -who have no shot…so he’s giving an assist to Nikki for the Wall Streeters and Chamber. They cannot stand an intelligent effective conservative like DeSantis. Trump would be a lame duck if he wins the nomination, that’s if he’s not convicted.

    Nikki Haley is past her time and not even smart. She needs to have a talk show like Ophra

    American voters need to unite to defeat the left.

    Our country will not remain a Constitutional Republic if a D wins in ‘24.
