Trump Regains the Lead in New Hampshire, Rubio Ties Carson

Donald Trump is back on top in New Hampshire. The latest poll by WBUR/MassINC placed Trump in the lead, while both Ben Carson and Marco Rubio tied for second.

Which Republican candidate would you vote for?

  • Donald Trump – 23%
  • Marco Rubio – 13%
  • Ben Carson – 13%
  • Ted Cruz – 8%
  • John Kasich – 7%
  • Jeb Bush – 7%

Trump has taken advantage of the recent Paris terror attacks to boost his racist immigration agenda. He once proclaimed that he loved Muslims, but now he clearly hates them and wants to keep them out of the United States at all costs. This flip-flop of policy deserves notice and should serve as evidence that Trump will say anything at all to win votes and that isn’t honest about anything he says, besides his racism. His new policy is to keep Syrian refugees out of the United States ,and he is pushing for it using momentum generated by the Paris terror attacks.

Rubio and Carson tied for second in this poll. Carson polls well in certain states and struggles in others. His policies are firmly against immigration, but he is far more radical than Trump when it comes to religion and preserving religious rights.

Rubio continues to gain on Trump and Carson. He is a more moderate choice for the GOP and someone undecided voters would consider if they were choosing between the aforementioned two. Look for Rubio to gain in the polls as the nomination approaches.
