( – In a recent survey conducted by The Washington Post, it was revealed that a significant portion of Republican voters in New Hampshire, often referred to as the Granite State, remain steadfast in their support for former President Trump, despite his involvement in multiple criminal indictments. According to the exit polls, an astounding 87% of those who voted for Trump expressed their continued backing for his presidential ambitions, even if he were to be found guilty in any of the criminal cases against him.

The perspective shifts notably among supporters of Nikki Haley, Trump’s Republican rival. A considerable majority, about 84%, of Haley’s supporters believe that Trump would be unfit to serve in the White House if he were to be convicted. Only 12% of Haley’s supporters shared the sentiment of Trump’s base.

In contrast, a mere 13% of Trump’s supporters agree with Haley’s base, opining that a conviction should disqualify Trump from holding office.

Trump is currently entangled in legal battles, facing a total of 91 charges spread across four distinct cases. Two of these cases center around his alleged attempts to alter the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, which he lost to President Biden. Legal proceedings have been intensifying, with prosecutors pushing for expedited trials to potentially secure a conviction before the upcoming election. Conversely, Trump’s legal team is endeavoring to postpone these trials until after the November general election.

The exit poll results from the New Hampshire primary revealed a deep-seated disbelief among Trump’s voters regarding the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election results. An overwhelming 86% of Trump’s supporters reject the notion that Biden’s victory was legitimate, while only 21% acknowledge Biden’s win.

These findings from New Hampshire echo similar sentiments observed in Iowa. Entrance polling conducted prior to the Iowa caucuses, which Trump won decisively, indicated that most of his Iowa supporters also doubted the legitimacy of Biden’s 2020 victory. Furthermore, two-thirds of these supporters maintained that Trump would remain suitable for the presidency even if he were to be convicted.
