Credit History score
My credit history is poor because of a new credit card I opened. If I close this account will it raise my credit history score?

No

It will noy help.  Your score isny poor due to opening a credit card account.  Such activity might draw your score down 10 points or so due to the inquiry.  What else is going on in your credit history?
