32% of New Hampshire Republicans Have Met At Least One of the Candidates
Tuesday, January 10, 2012
Every four years New Hampshire is invaded by politicians as the presidential nomination race of one or both parties begins to formally take off. This year, only the Republicans are battling it out in the Granite State, and roughly one-in-three of New Hampshire’s Likely GOP Primary Voters have personally met at least one of the candidates.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in the state finds that the overwhelming majority of New Hampshire Republicans (68%) have not met any of the candidates. But 11% have personally met one; another 10% have met two of the candidates, while five percent (5%) have met three of the six men seeking the GOP nomination. Six percent (6%) have met more than three. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
