Donald Trump is now leading all other Republican presidential candidates by a landslide in the state of New Hampshire. In the latest Monmouth University poll, Trump finds himself getting twice the support as second place Jeb Bush.
New Hampshire is an important state to gain a lead in since it is the first primary state in the race to win the Republican presidential nominee, following only the Iowa caucus which takes place in early January.
According to the Monmouth poll, Trump came in on top at 24 percent. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush came in second at 12 percent, while Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker are tied for third at 7 percent.
However, when digging deeper into poll numbers, it's clear that although Trump is well in the lead, he is also the most polarizing Republican candidate. Trump has a 47 percent favorable rating and an almost equally high unfavorable rating of 44 percent. In contrary, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker received a 57 percent positive rating and only a 16 percent negative rating.
The poll finds that Trump is taking votes from all GOP candidates, but he's hurting Walker, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz the most.
*The Monmouth University Poll was conducted July 23-26, surveying 467 New Hampshire Republican voters and likely voters leaning Republican, via landline and cellphone. The overall margin of error for the survey is plus or minus 4.5 percentage points.
