President Donald Trump continues to dominate the Republican Party despite the DOJ’s weaponization of the FBI against him.
The September poll showed Trump capturing 54 percent of the potential Republican vote, which increased from 53 percent in August. Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., was a distant second with 15 percent of the vote, and former Vice President Mike Pence received eight percent of Republican voters’ support in the poll. All other potential Republican candidates received two percent or less.
Furthermore, Trump’s endorsement continues to serve as the gold standard in Republican elections. Candidates endorsed by the 45th president, the driving force behind getting Republicans elected, have consistently outperformed other Republican runner-ups in the primaries.
Speculation about Trump’s plans for 2024 has dominated headlines as he continues to poll extremely well among voters.
