( – Recently, New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu, a Republican, expressed strong criticism of former President Donald Trump, suggesting that Trump’s potential return to the presidency would be marred by constant turmoil and distraction. In an interview with MSNBC, Sununu remarked, “The guy just has chaos and distraction that follows him,” and voiced skepticism about Trump’s ability to address the nation’s challenges effectively.

Governor Sununu emphasized a desire among Republicans to embrace a new era of conservative leadership, focusing on future progress rather than dwelling on past conflicts associated with Trump. He highlighted this viewpoint by endorsing Nikki Haley, the former U.N. ambassador, for the Republican nomination earlier in the week. Sununu praised Haley’s increasing popularity, attributing her surge in support to her genuine connection with voters and the trust she has been able to build—a quality he views as increasingly rare in Washington.

During the interview, Sununu lauded Haley’s charisma and her ability to resonate with the electorate, which he believes is reflected in her rising poll numbers. Despite his endorsement of Haley, he also acknowledged the strengths of other Republican contenders, including Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, whom he described as close allies and capable candidates. However, he notably withheld any praise for Trump and biotech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy.

In the context of recent polling data, Haley appears to be a strong contender, especially in New Hampshire, where she is often ranked second. Despite this, Trump continues to lead the GOP field with a significant margin in the polls, according to The Hill/Decision Desk HQ. Sununu, however, downplayed these figures, suggesting that many New Hampshire voters remain undecided with several weeks left before final decisions are made.
