DURHAM, N.H. —New York business executive Donald Trump not only continues to lead the Republican field, but his lead has grown significantly since late summer, with more likely primary voters than ever now saying they believe he will win the New Hampshire primary.
A new CNN/WMUR New Hampshire Primary Poll conducted by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center also shows that Republican voters believe that by far, Trump stands the best chance among the GOP field to win the November 2016 general election and become president.
The poll, conducted from Nov. 30 to Dec. 7 also shows that in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernadino, California, half of Republican primary voters consider foreign policy and national security the issue most important to their votes. It is far ahead of jobs and the economy, now at 18 percent, and immigration at 12 percent.
The poll also show that U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida has moved into second place, but still with less than half of amount of support enjoyed by Trump
