New Hampshire Republican voters are evenly split between Donald Trump and Indian American Nikki Haley, according to a January 16 poll by the American Research Group Inc. The first in the nation primary (FINP) is scheduled for January 23 in the Granite State.

The poll showed that the two Republicans are neck and neck at 40 percent among New Hampshire voters. Trump recently won the Iowa caucuses with a landslide, but in New Hampshire, Haley has been steadily closing the gap with the frontrunner. 

In December Trump polled at 33 percent in NH while Haley trailed closely with 29 percent support. Haley maintained the four-point difference at the beginning of January with 33 percent while Trump led with 37 percent support in the polls. 

Meanwhile, poll watchers have predicted that those still in the running to win the GOP nomination for president in 2024 have a negligible chance if Trump wins in the FINP, after capturing 51 percent of the votes in Iowa. 

Expressing confidence, Haley posted on X, “Trump is confused about his own record. Under Trump's leadership, Republicans lost the House, the Senate, and the White House. I crush Biden by double digits, while Trump barely squeaks by Biden on a good day.”

Hours before the Iowa caucuses, the former governor of South Carolina claimed “I can safely say, tonight I will make this Republican primary a two-person race.” Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis toppled her for second place in Iowa but the latest polls show DeSantis has garnered just 4 percent support in New Hampshire.
