(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – A remarkable admission that Donald Trump’s quest to reclaim the White House is likely to succeed has come from an unlikely source as a leftist propaganda pillar. CNN’s political director has stated new poll results contradict other 2024 GOP candidates claiming the former president can’t win.
CNN Political Director David Chalian recently cast doubt on the narrative promoted by some Republican nomination bidders that Trump is unelectable.
Chalian provided an analysis of a new CNN poll, conducted in partnership with the University of New Hampshire, which shows Trump leading his Republican competitors among New Hampshire voters.
Notably, former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley is trailing Trump by 22%, securing 20% of the vote, while both Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and businessman Vivek Ramaswamy are registering in the single digits.
Chalian further dissected the poll results, revealing that 52% of respondents have firmly decided on their candidate, 35% are leaning toward a candidate, and only 12% remain undecided. He emphasized the strong commitment of Trump’s supporters.
“But if you add in Trump supporters here, just take a look. Those who say Donald Trump is their choice in this primary, 83%… say they are solidly locked in,” the CNN analyst said.
“That is the stickiness of his support. Eleven percent of Trump supporters are leaning to someone, they consider themselves sort of leaners, five percent still deciding. And as you know, one of the main arguments that we’re hearing from candidates not named Trump is that he can’t win and that argument is falling on deaf ears with this New Hampshire Republican primary electorate,” he elaborated.
Chalian also pointed out a noticeable shift in perceptions of Trump’s electability.
“Look at this movement. Donald Trump back in September, 51% of likely Republican primary voters said he had the best chance of winning a general election. That’s now up to 57%. So he’s up six points on electability. It’s not an argument that people are hearing that Donald Trump can’t win the general election,” he explained.
Meanwhile, Haley’s support has surged, as indicated by an Emerson College poll placing her in second place in New Hampshire with a 14-point jump. Trump leads with 49% in this poll.
Additionally, a new Quinnipiac poll demonstrates Trump’s competitive edge over President Joe Biden, showing him leading by two points, marking a first for this particular poll.
