Despite the political and polling success of Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders, Granite Staters overwhelmingly reject socialism according to a new ScottRasmussen.com poll released today.
In a statewide poll of New Hampshire voters, pollster Scott Rasmussen tells NHJournal that just 27 percent of registered voters have a favorable opinion of socialism, while 71 percent have an unfavorable view. Only 4 percent have a ‘very favorable’ view, while a solid 47 percent have a very unfavorable opinion of socialism.
Rasmussen also tells NHJournal that President Donald Trump continues to struggle in the Granite State, with a 42 percent approval rating. “But he gets a boost because six percent of those who disapprove of President Trump also believe things would be worse if Hillary Clinton were president.
“Put those numbers together and they nearly match Trump’s 2016 total,” Rasmussen says.
President Trump narrowly lost New Hampshire by 0.37 percent.
