But some voters and analysts feel the race in the Granite State is closer than it appears on paper — a belief veteran GOP strategist Mike Dennehy says is reflected in the Trump team’s continued attention here.
Dennehy cited a recent report from those behind the Granite State Poll discussing the “spiral of silence” that keeps some Trump voters from speaking up publicly in support of a candidate viewed as “unpopular.”
Biden led by 12 points in the most recent Granite State Poll in mid-October. But the pollsters analyzed the results and found more than 60% of New Hampshire voters who back Trump said they would not put a bumper sticker on their car or a sign in their yard “out of fear of vandalism.” And 45% said they don’t talk about their support for Trump with friends or co-workers, while 42% said they don’t talk about it with family.
President Trump trails Democratic nominee Joe Biden by double digits in recent New Hampshire polls. Some voters and analysts feel the race in the Granite State is closer than it appears.
May be a surprise victory in NH this election, especially with Biden barely focusing his attention there. Large crowds wherever Trump goes, a large portion polled were not republicans or didn't vote in 2016, a trend that has showed up in other states and are ignored by the polls, intentionally or not.
