CONCORD, N.H. (WCAX) - Support for former President Donald Trump is waning in New Hampshire according to a new poll from the UNH Survey Center.

The new Granite State poll found that 37% of likely primary voters support the former president. That’s down from 43% back in October.

Meanwhile, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis polled at 39%, up from 18%.

UNH Survey Center Director Andrew Smith attributes the shift to increasing name recognition among possible presidential candidates.

“Ron DeSantis has been doing a good job over the last year getting himself national media attention and that national media attention is being read by voters in New Hampshire,” Smith said.

Neither DeSantis nor Trump have announced whether they plan to run.

Former Vice President Mike Pence came in third in the UNH poll at 9%.

It’s important to note this is just one poll and if you look at polling done in the broader Republican White House race, Trump still leads.

In the 2020 general election in New Hampshire, Trump lost to Joe Biden by roughly 60,000 votes.
