A CNN/WMUR tracking poll released Monday showed support for billionaire Donald Trump decreased by 2 points in New Hampshire since the previous poll released two days ago, while no other candidate registered a change in support of more than a single percentage point.
The poll showed Trump at 31 percent in the state, down from 33 percent in the previous poll. Second place went to Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), at 17 percent, followed by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) at 14 percent and Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) at 10 percent. This replicates the order in which candidates stood in the previous poll, which showed Rubio at 16 percent, Cruz at 14 percent and Kasich at 11 percent.
TPM’s PollTracker Average shows Trump leading the field at 30.4 percent, followed by Rubio at 17 percent, Cruz at 12.8 percent and Kasich at 12.7 percent.
The CNN/WMUR tracking poll was carried out from Feb. 4-8. Pollsters surveyed 362 Republican voters by live telephone interview, with a margin of error of 5.2 percentage points. Only a fraction of the interviews averaged into this poll were taken after Saturday night’s New Hampshire Republican debate.
