President Donald Trump’s solid base of MAGA voters has reigned supreme lately in a slate of 2024 GOP primary polls. Since former U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley jumped into the presidential primary race on Tuesday, Republican voters seem to have little doubt about who they want to see as the presidential nominee in 2024.
According to new data from Quinnipiac, Trump scored 42 percent of support among Republicans and Republican-leaning voters, while Governor Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., garnered 36 percent. Nikki Haley received 5 percent of support, while former Vice President Mike Pence accrued 4 percent.
Notably, Haley jumped ahead of Pence in this poll. Previously, Pence has consistently managed to net around 7 percent of support from Republicans in most polls, as he did in Morning Consult’s most recent 2024 GOP Primary Tracker survey.
Quinnipiac’s poll also looked at a four-way race between Trump, DeSantis, Haley, and Pence in their survey. They found that 43 percent of Republican voters in a four-way split preferred Trump as the nominee.
41 percent preferred DeSantis, 6 percent preferred Haley, and 4 percent preferred Pence. However, neither DeSantis nor Pence have formally announced a 2024 presidential bid at this time.
As reported by RSBN, Trump has previously touted his wide lead over Biden in the polls, too:
“Doing great in poll numbers. Leading all Republicans by a lot, also leading Biden by a very wide margin, which means that our weaponized Injustice Department, local D.A.’s, and Attorney Generals, will step up their illegal and unprecedented attacks in order to disparage me with false ‘bull….’ and statements in the hope that I will be damaged enough to allow a RINO, or Biden, to ‘slip through the cracks.’ But be careful, the American people get it, and don’t like what they are seeing.
