MANCHESTER—The Ted Cruz campaign is optimistic that it will shake up expectations on New Hampshire’s primary Tuesday.
The Real Clear polling average for the New Hampshire GOP primary shows Cruz in third place with 12 percent, while Marco Rubio is in second and has 16 percent. Trump leads the pack with 30.7 percent.
Former New Hampshire Republican Sen. Bob Smith, a Cruz campaign ally, expressed full confidence about the campaign’s ground game overcoming present poll expectations.
“I’m not knocking polls. They were wrong in my case in 1996, when they said that I lost. I think what we’ve been doing is knocking on doors,” Smith told The Daily Caller. “We’ve been ID’ing voters who are leaners, people who are not sure, and we’ve been knocking on thousands and thousands of doors for literally months and I’ll tell you it feels good out there.”
