Trump triumphs New Hampshire polls and beyond following Iowa victory

Trump is ahead in the polls in New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina.

Former President Donald Trump is significantly ahead of all competitors in polls of early Republican primary states after he won the Iowa caucuses.

After winning by about 30 points in Iowa on Monday in the nation's first 2024 caucus, Trump is focusing on New Hampshire before the first primary on Tuesday. 

Trump is polling at 45.6% on average in New Hampshire, and his next closest competitor is former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley at 33.1%, according to FiveThirtyEight, putting Trump's lead in the state at double-digits. 

Nevada's nominating race comes next after New Hampshire, but it is slightly more complicated to measure who is ahead, as Haley is running on the state GOP primary ballot on Feb. 6 while Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis are participating in the state Republican caucus on Feb. 8. Nevada Democratic Secretary of State Cisco Aguilar said earlier this month that the primary is only "advisory" to the parties in deciding who to nominate, according to the Reno Gazette Journal.

Regardless, the latest Nevada caucus poll released earlier this month by Emerson College shows Trump at 73% with DeSantis at 8%.

Following Nevada is Haley's home state of South Carolina, where she served as governor from 2011 to 2017.  However, Trump still dominates the state, polling at 54.8% on average while Haley is in second with 24.9%. Meanwhile, DeSantis has pulled back from campaigning in New Hampshire to focus on South Carolina, which may still alter the polls, as he is at 12.1% on average in the state. 

Trump is also more than 50 points ahead of all competitors on average nationwide, coming in with 63.1% compared to Haley's 11.9% and DeSantis' 11.6%.
