The 2 are way behind Donald Trump, Nikki Haley.

New polling of the Granite State shows Florida’s Governor in a dead heat for third place in the Republican Presidential Primary.

The Saint Anselm College Survey Center survey taken Jan. 8-9 finds Ron DeSantis and Vivek Ramaswamy tied with 6% support each. They trail Donald Trump (45%), Nikki Haley (31%) and Chris Christie (9%). Christie, of course, has now dropped out.

The write-up of the poll makes it clear that Trump’s presence in the race is affecting the two lowest-polling candidates. It notes that “78% of Haley supporters and 100% of Christie supporters have an unfavorable impression of Trump, while 76% of DeSantis supporters and 74% of Ramaswamy supporters have a favorable impression of Trump.”

DeSantis is above water overall with GOP Primary voters, with 53% approval against 43% disapproval.

This poll is actually worse for DeSantis than an Emerson College survey that came out earlier Thursday, in which the Governor had 7% support.

This continues a trend of bad polls for him with less than two weeks before the first-in-the-nation Primary.

Suffolk University survey released Tuesday found DeSantis at 8%, good for fourth place at the time.

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.

    Make $280 per hour. The hiring procedure is not easy. In any case, a plethora of tools are at your disposal to support your preferred method of working. Get motivated to post job openings for hundreds of vacancies on job boards and employment portals.

    Fraud guy’s in the lead

    The GOP’s only legitimate conservative candidate have moved up to a close 2nd

    And with the two animatronic Dopeys being tied for last, it’s time for the Dopeys to drop out if they want to see the GOP and perhaps even the USA remain a going concern for 2028

    Rhond and Vivek, if Trump get your party’s nomination this year, there is no GOP nom in 2028. The G0P, the USA, or both will be done before your 2028 run.

    Quit splitting the GOP Primary vote, Rhonda and Vivek. Get out now. If you won’t get the L’s for America, would you please do it for your kids and grandkids and their kids.
