President Donald Trump is leading heavily in the 2024 political primary polls ahead of his Tuesday arraignment in New York, demonstrating his position as the clear favorite among Republican voters for the presidential nomination.
According to a new poll from Reuters/Ipsos poll, 48 percent of Republicans said they want Trump as the party’s nominee in 2024, up four points from mid-March. Another 2024 New Hampshire GOP primary poll from St. Anselm College found that Trump had an impressive 42 percent lead against Gov. Ron DeSantis’s 29 percent.
Trump’s swelling poll numbers come on the heels of his campaign raising a jaw-dropping $8 million in donations on the heels of his indictment by a Manhattan grand jury, according to the president’s senior advisor, Jason Miller. $1.1 million of the total number was raised on Monday.
As reported by RSBN, $4 million was raised in the first 24 hours following news of the indictment, with a notable 25 percent of that money coming from first-time donors to the Trump campaign.
In the polls, President Trump is also leading strongly in Massachusetts (24-point lead, per Boston Herald/Opinion Diagnostics). Another YouGov poll additionally found that 55 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning Independents believed that President Trump has the best chance of winning the 2024 presidential election.
Per RSBN, over the weekend, over 16,000 people signed up to volunteer for the 2024 Trump campaign after news of the indictment broke. Since then, support has poured out across America for the president’s plight in the New York courts.
“I have never had so much support and love as I do now against the Radical Left Insurrectionists, Extortionists, Crooked Politicians and Thugs that are destroying our Country,” Trump acknowledged on Truth Social on Sunday. “Thank you, we will MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!”
