PPP’s new New Hampshire poll finds Donald Trump in the strongest position of any poll we’ve done anywhere since he entered the race. Trump laps the Republican field with 35% to 11% for John Kasich, 10% for Carly Fiorina, 7% each for Jeb Bush and Scott Walker, 6% for Ben Carson, 4% each for Chris Christie, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio, and 3% for Rand Paul.
Mr. Walker has appeared to suffer the most from Mr. Trump’s rise. Since May, the percentage of Republicans who say they wouldn’t consider supporting the Wisconsin governor has more than doubled, to nearly a quarter of the primary electorate, according to a Vox Populi survey commissioned by the GOP polling firm TargetPoint.

At least three recent polls show Walker trailing Trump in the Hawkeye State. Two of them were conducted after the debate in Cleveland last week, at which Walker’s performance got mixed reviews.
Trump, the GOP presidential hopeful who has dominated the headlines in recent weeks, is well ahead with 26% support among Republicans.
