How Donald Trump Won New Hampshire: Exit Poll Analysis



    Trump Wins New Hampshire Primary

    After winning the New Hampshire GOP primary, Donald Trump claimed he would be the "greatest jobs president that God every created." He also stated that the unemployment rate could be as high as 28 or even 42 percent, which is not true, according to PolitiFact. (Published Tuesday, Feb. 9, 2016)

    Donald Trump won nearly every voting bloc in New Hampshire Tuesday, according to the NBC News Exit Poll.

    Trump did particularly well among a few groups. His best showing came from voters who wanted a candidate who "tells it like it is" (63 percent) and those who want a president from outside the political establishment (57 percent), NBC News reported.

    Trump took support from half of Republicans who named immigration as their top issue. He also won 42 percent of the vote among those who support banning non-U.S. Muslims from entering the country, as the billionaire real-estate mogul has called for.

    But New Hampshire Republicans are divided on the prospects of Trump as the party's nominee. Overall, 48 percent say they would be satisfied if he won the GOP nomination, but a nearly identical 49 percent would be dissatisfied.
