“Donald Trump has seen a significant number of votes go against him in the New Mexico Republican presidential primary. While Trump still dominated the race, winning the primary with 84.5 percent of the vote, there was still nearly 15 percent of voters that went against the former president, amounting to more than 15,000 votes. This includes 8.6 percent of the vote going to former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, who dropped out of the race in March, as well as 2.6 percent for former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who dropped out in January. There were also an additional 3.3 percent for ‘uncommitted’ amounting to more than 3,100 votes in the New Mexico primary.” (06/05/24)
