Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ campaign is continuing its downward spiral, falling to fifth place in the latest New Hampshire poll.
The Washington Post/Monmouth University poll, published on Friday, found that former President Donald Trump remains in the lead with 46 percent support.
Nikki Haley is now in second with 18 percent, Chris Christie is in third place with 11 percent, and Vivek Ramaswamy is in fourth with eight percent.

DeSantis tumbled to fifth place with just seven percent of likely Republican primary voters supporting him.
Breitbart News notes, “DeSantis and Haley have, in essence, traded places when this poll is compared to earlier surveys taken by other polling outfits in the summer and the spring. For example, a University of New Hampshire poll conducted July 13-17 found DeSantis at 23 percent in New Hampshire and Haley at five percent.”
“Similarly, DeSantis held 19 percent of backing to Haley’s five percent in a St. Anselm College poll conducted from June 21-23. In March, St. Anselm had DeSantis at 29 percent, WMUR noted at the time.”
DeSantis was once considered to be the frontrunner to challenge Trump, but support quickly fizzled after his campaign announcement.
