After a second-place finish in the Iowa caucuses, Donald Trump has been making accusations and shifting his message and tactics as he tries to regain the title of Republican presidential front-runner.
Some of it isn’t sitting well with New Hampshire voters just as they are settling on their candidate of choice in next Tuesday’s primary.
The celebrity businessman has accused the Iowa winner, Ted Cruz, of cheating after the Texas senator’s campaign and his supporters incorrectly suggested to voters that retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson was quitting the race.
... While Mr. Cruz apologized to Mr. Carson, who hasn’t suspended his campaign, Mr. Trump’s complaints—and his demand for a do-over in Iowa—were off-putting to some voters here.

Dave Connors, 71, of Hampton, N.H., who attended a Cruz event Thursday, said that he and his wife “were really big Trump supporters, but his lack of filter is really getting to me.”
