New Hampshire voters talk Trump, immigration and gas prices | FiveThirtyEight


Galen Druke sat down with three supporters of former President Donald Trump, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley in Manchester, New Hampshire, to talk about why they’re voting for their chosen candidates. The Haley supporter, who voted for President Joe Biden in 2020, said that if Haley does not win the primary, she will vote for Biden or independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. in the fall. The DeSantis supporter said he was committed to voting for Trump if he wins the primary, even if the former president is convicted of a felony before Election Day. (This was filmed before DeSantis dropped out of the race.)

Immigration was the number one issue for the Trump and DeSantis supporters, while leadership qualities were most important to the Haley supporter. Although these are just three people and not a representative sample, the themes we heard mentioned were reflective of the kinds of trends we’ve seen in recent issue polling in New Hampshire.
