Polls show the former president with double-digit leads over former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley among likely Republican voters. But a recent Marist College survey suggests Haley would perform better against President Biden in a general election in the Granite State.

Brian from Manchester said he originally planned to vote for Chris Christie, but will vote for Haley since the former New Jersey governor dropped out.

“It’s a vote not for her so much, but it’s against Trump,” he told Fox News.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton narrowly edged-out Trump in the 2016 election. In 2020, Biden beat Trump by about 7%.

“Unfortunately there is not a candidate that supports that right now,” she said.

“Close the border,” she said. “I’m a legal immigrant from Germany so I really believe this country is wonderful … the only way to get in here is through legal immigration.”

Trump is expected to hold a last-minute rally Monday night in Laconia alongside his former opponents South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, Vivek Ramaswamy and North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum.
