Ka­sich leads Trump in New Hamp­shire poll

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Seth McLaugh­lin

Gov. John Ka­sich of Ohio leads Pres­i­dent Trump in a new poll among likely GOP pri­mary votes in New Hamp­shire, which is home to the first-in-the-na­tion pri­mary.

The sur­vey from the Amer­i­can Re­search Group Inc. shows Mr. Ka­sich out­per­form­ing Mr. Trump by a 52 per­cent to 40 per­cent mar­gin among likely Repub­li­can pri­mary vot­ers.

He leads 51 per­cent to 42 per­cent among reg­is­tered Repub­li­cans and 54 per­cent to 37 per­cent among in­de­pen­dents.

Mr. Trump eas­ily won the crowded New Hamp­shire pri­mary in the 2016 GOP nom­i­na­tion race, help­ing him re­bound from a sec­ond-place fin­ish in the Iowa cau­cuses to Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and putting him on a path to vic­tory.

Af­ter he dropped out of the race, Mr. Ka­sich made it clear he was no fan of Mr. Trump by writ­ing in Ari­zona Sen. John McCain for pres­i­dent.

Mr. Ka­sich has since said he is root­ing for Mr. Trump to do well as pres­i­dent, but has re­fused to close the door on run­ning against him for the GOP nom­i­na­tion in 2020.
