Poll: Ron DeSantis falls to 6% in New Hampshire, 49% behind Donald Trump

Desantis NH
The Governor lost a point from Saturday's survey.

With speculation swirling about the short-term future of his campaign, Ron DeSantis faces a massive deficit in New Hampshire according to the latest tracking survey.

Sunday’s Suffolk University/NBC10 Boston/Boston Globe poll shows him with 6% support in the First in the Nation state. This puts him 49 points behind Donald Trump and 30 points behind Nikki Haley.

DeSantis had climbed to 7% in the same poll on Saturday, but Sunday’s release finds him at the previous level.

The Governor would have faced questions on NBC’s “Meet the Press” and CNN on Sunday morning about this poll and the future of his campaign, but cancelled those appearances.

“The media hits were canceled due to a scheduling issue and will be rescheduled. The governor will be traveling Sunday morning with the campaign and has public events scheduled Sunday evening through Tuesday in NH,” posted Bryan Griffin, a spokesperson for DeSantis.

DeSantis’ campaign advised media that he would be in Manchester Sunday at 5 p.m. but the event is not advertised on the campaign webpage. Also, the Never Back Down super PAC is advertising a Monday event, which is on its webpage at this writing. It is a town hall in Weare, a city of 9,000 people.

    DeSantis has made so many stupid false statements….. he has ruined his chances for another shot in 2028…… and that’s a good thing!

    Tim Scott and a host of other Republican wannabe future presidents have recently endorsed a twice impeached four time indicted narcissist….. they too have forfeited their 2028 chances!

    Americans and the media will remind Republicans of their failed choices!

    Good Mornting America,
    Barack’s home yucking it up because he thinks the left is going up against Trump again and will roll Trump again just like last time.
    However, America, every member of The Sage Earl Pitts American Fan Club knows better. We have all “Relaxed Our Sphincters” secure in “The Sage Knowledge” that Earl, Don, and Ron & The Beautiful Casey made a deal a few years back which will “Roll Barak”.
    If you are not already a member of “The Sage Earl Pitts American Fan Club” then you dont know. And we put a pause on new memberships right after Whoopi and Brian Stelter tried to join (spys).
    So all non-members can just trust our good word and our honesty that Ron and The Beautuful Casey will be living in the White House, saveing the planet for the “Next Eight Sage Years”.
    Thank you America,
    Earl Pitts American
