A new poll from the Des Moines Register released this week has indicated that President Donald Trump is likely to reign unquestionably supreme in the 2024 GOP primary, as Iowa caucus-goers noted that their first choice for president was Trump.
In their poll, DMR found that 42 percent of likely Republican caucus-goers preferred Trump as their first choice for president in 2024, while 19 percent preferred Trump’s opponent, Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla.
No other Republican presidential candidate won more than single-digit support in their survey, which was conducted between Aug.13 and Aug. 17 among 406 Republican caucus-goers.
President Trump addressed the explosive new polling results on Truth Social on Monday morning, writing:
“The highly anticipated Des Moines Register Poll of Iowa Voters is just out: ‘DONALD TRUMP HOLDS COMMANDING LEAD In First Test of 2024 Republican Caucus Field.’ Remember, I got the Farmers 28 Billion Dollars from China, the USMCA Trade Deal (& many others!), saved Ethanol, Social Security, and MediCare, & got Iowa ‘First In the Nation’ status. Nobody else could have done this.”
The Trump team has unflinchingly scorched Gov. DeSantis for failing to gain political momentum in the Hawkeye State ahead of the 2024 Republican Iowa caucuses.
MAGA spokeswoman Karoline Leavitt remarked in an official statement, “We highly encourage Ron DeSantis to finish his 99 county tour and meet as many Iowa voters as possible. The more counties that Ron visits, the more his poll numbers fall.”
President Trump has historically been very popular among GOP voters in Iowa. He attended the famous Iowa State Fair in August, drawing support from thousands of fair-goers.
As reported by RSBN, Trump walked through the fairgrounds with an entourage of security personnel and press in tow, meeting with potential Iowa voters and giving a platform to several other America First candidates who traveled with him.
