NextImg:Sununu sees 'huge opportunity' for GOP candidates amid Trump's polling


Gov. Chris Sununu (R-NH) predicted a decline in Donald Trump's poll numbers in New Hampshire, opening the door for other GOP presidential hopefuls.

Sununu, New Hampshire's five-term governor, claimed the polls were proving too low for an incumbent president during a television interview Saturday on Fox News's Cavuto Live. It was among the first of his live interviews since announcing he would not run for a sixth term as governor earlier this week.

"When you have an incumbent president that's sitting under 40%, that’s a huge opportunity, right, for everybody else," Sununu said. "Now, it probably means we’re going to have to coalesce one or two candidates around that other category, but that’s 60-plus percent of the voters right now that are not with Trump in New Hampshire, and I think that number will grow even more and more."

The other of the total dozen Republican candidates include former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former Rep. Will Hurd, former Vice President Mike Pence, Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), Gov. Doug Burgum (R-ND), Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), Miami Mayor Francis Suarez, political commentator Larry Elder, businessman Perry Johnson, and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy. Sununu admitted that he, along with other New Hampshire voters, feel "sympathy" for Trump over the "politicalization [sic] out of the Department of Justice and indictments."

"Just the reality that this can’t be our candidate," Sununu said of Trump. "Cause it ain't going to win in November of '24. That reality is really coming to bear."

New Hampshire supported President Joe Biden in the 2020 election and former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton in the 2016 election. The state has four Electoral College votes.

Meanwhile, a July poll from the Economist and YouGov reported 61% of voters believe Biden is not the Democrats' strongest candidate the party could nominate, and 53% of voters believe Trump is not the strongest candidate for Republicans in 2024.
