Donald Trump has repeatedly discussed the importance of voter turnout in the GOP primary election and beyond. On Sunday, in Rochester, New Hampshire, he reminded state voters that the strength of victory mattered deeply.
At a campaign event over the weekend, he pointed out his dominating poll numbers but added a caveat.
He said, “…We’re all set to win, but you have to do just one favor: no matter how big we’re winning, we want to win by BIG margins…the more we win by, the bigger a signal we send for November.”
Trump has talked about sending a “strong signal” by calling on primary voters to show their patriotism by voting together in 2024 and rejecting elite politics and failed leftist policies.
Last week, Trump also asked voters to bring home a victory in the Granite State by “big margins” and reminded New Hampshire residents of the importance of getting out and voting in the primary election.
“You have to go out and vote, okay? Don’t sit back…we’re leading by a lot, but you MUST GO OUT AND VOTE,” he said in Atkinson, New Hampshire.
Trump easily leads in New Hampshire, but he has said more than once that the state’s GOP primary is open, which means that his opponent was “counting on Democrats and liberals to infiltrate” the primary to get more votes.
He was talking about Nikki Haley, who used to be the U.S. ambassador to the U.N. and was the last Republican to run against Trump for the Republican Party nomination in 2024 after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis quit his race.
The previous Republican record, set by Bob Dole in 1988, was 12.8 points. President Donald Trump beat that record by 30 points in the Iowa caucuses on January 15.
