In addition to talking to Democratic primary voters leaving the surveys in New Hampshire on Tuesday, CBS News surveyed Republicans, too.
As expected, President Trump overwhelmingly won the Republican main, and those who came out to vote were strong advocates.
Trump vs. the Republican Politician Celebration
Assistance for the president among New Hampshire Republican politician primary citizens runs deep. When they were asked whether they feel more allegiance to the Republican politician Celebration or to Donald Trump, a majority (55%) picked Trump. Even amongst those who stated they feel more allegiance to the Republican Party, most of them– more than 7 in 10– chose Mr. Trump.
The president did get somewhat less assistance amongst Republican main voters who stated they didn’t support him for the election in 2016, however the majority of (62%) of that group cast their vote for him as well.
While the Democratic and Republican primary contests were different in nature (one competitive, one mainly not), here’s a take a look at the diverging views held by New Hampshire Democratic and Republican politician main voters as they left the surveys.
Views of the Trump administration
There is little middle ground when it comes to overall sensations about the Trump administration. Most New Hampshire Democratic main voters expressed anger toward the administration, while most Republicans expressed enthusiasm.
The couple of who felt disappointed or mad about the Trump administration did not elect the president on Tuesday; most backed former Massachusetts governor Costs Weld. This small group that was dissatisfied or mad represented simply one in 10 Republican main voters.
Personal financial resources and the economy
On the economic front, New Hampshire Republicans were more favorable than Democrats about their own household’s financial circumstance. The number of New Hampshire Republicans who stated they are getting ahead economically (42%) more than doubled since 2016 (19%). This percentage increased amongst Democrats, too, but by just 6 points, to 21%.
Taking a look at voters across each celebration, those without a college degree were a bit less positive about their finances than those with a college degree, although not overwhelmingly so.
The effect of impeachment
New Hampshire Republican politician and Democratic main voters see the effect of impeachment on the president’s reelection chances in a different way. A lot of Republicans stated it has assisted Mr. Trump’s reelection chances. Many Democrats disagree, but they don’t widely see impeachment as something that has injured the president politically– 6 in 10 said his impeachment hasn’t made a difference concerning his reelection chances. Simply under a quarter said it has actually injured his chances.
