A recent poll in New Hampshire showed that Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley trails former President Trump by merely 4 points.
Trump earned 33 percent support, while Haley earned 29 percent, within the poll’s margin of error.
Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie earned 13 percent, and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis received 6 percent. (Trending: Trans Athlete Breaks College Record After Joining Women’s Team)
Haley expressed confidence in her rising support, prompting a response from Trump, who dismissed the poll and called it fake.
Haley’s spokesperson stated that “this is a two-person race” and Haley’s team “hope to see him on the debate stage in Iowa.”
“Fake New Hampshire poll was released on Birdbrain,” Trump said, referring to Haley. “Just another scam! Ratings challenged FoxNews will play it to the hilt.”
“Sununu now one of the least popular governors in the U.S. Real poll to follow.”
New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu’s endorsement of Haley has also been a point of contention, with Trump attacking Sununu online.
Another survey by the Saint Anselm College Survey Center found Haley earning 30 percent of the likely Republican primary vote, 14 points behind Trump.
