Real estate mogul Donald Trump’s high-profile media campaign has boosted support for his possible presidential campaign among voters in New Hampshire.
If Trump ran in the New Hampshire primary race today, he would attract 21 percent of the vote, second only to former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s 27 percent, according to a new Public Policy Polling
survey. Newt Gingrich and Mike Huckabee would be next at 12 percent. The other potential candidates would be in single digits.
But if Trump isn’t included in the list for the first primary in the nation, Romney’s support stands at 31 percent, followed by Mike Huckabee at 15 percent, Newt Gingrich at 13 percent, Sarah Palin and Ron Paul at 10 percent each, and others in single digits.
“Mitt Romney looked like the runaway favorite in all of our New Hampshire polling to date,” said Dean Debnam, president of Public Policy Polling. “Donald Trump’s the first person to hold him to a single-digit lead. He really could prove to be a serious candidate.”
