Donald Trump's lead was strengthened yet again by Tuesday's win in New Hampshire, enabled by his endorsements from former presidential-hopefuls Vivek Ramaswamy and Ron DeSantis.

The former president emerged victorious in the New Hampshire primary, outpacing his former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley. With 95% of the votes counted, Trump led Haley by a margin of 54.4% to 43.3%, as reported by The New York Times.

In the lead-up to the primary, polls indicated that Haley was close to matching Trump in New Hampshire. However, the dynamics shifted following Trump's robust performance in the Iowa Caucuses, where he secured a significant win and Haley finished third behind Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

The outcome in Iowa, coupled with DeSantis suspending his campaign and endorsing Trump, contributed to widening Trump's lead in New Hampshire. Despite an endorsement from New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu, expectations for Haley's performance were moderated, contrasting Sununu's earlier predictions of a landslide victory for her.

CNN's exit polling in New Hampshire revealed a notable trend, with 70% of Haley's supporters identified as non-registered Republicans. This trend suggests that Haley's base in New Hampshire consisted largely of independents, moderates, and secular voters.



Looking ahead, the primary schedule appears to favor Trump over Haley. Haley, focusing on a different electoral strategy, chose not to participate in the Nevada caucus, instead opting for the state's primary where, according to Politico, she will win no delegates.

As the results from New Hampshire were announced, Trump took to social media to comment on Haley's performance. He highlighted her failure to secure a win in New Hampshire and alluded to her anticipated challenges in upcoming contests, including Nevada.

“Haley said she had to WIN in New Hampshire,” Trump wrote. “SHE DIDN’T!!!”

“DELUSIONAL!!!” he continued.

He later wrote: “SHE CAME IN THIRD LAST WEEK!” and “SHE JUST LOST NEVADA, WHICH IS UP NEXT!”
