President Trump is still the people’s president, and the most recent polling in America strongly reflects that sentiment now more than ever. A new poll from Big Village found that the 45th president is the overwhelming favorite among a group of GOP contenders, garnering an impressive 56 percent of Republican voter support.

Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., managed to net 27 percent, solidifying Trump’s command over the field of prospective presidential hopefuls. Former Vice President Mike Pence managed to nab just seven percent of potential Republican support.

Polling has consistently shown that Pence no longer holds a position of popularity with GOP voters, clearing the way for Trump and DeSantis to move forward on the primary battlefield.

In a 2024 National Republican Primary poll from Yahoo/YouGov, Trump led DeSantis at 35 percent to 33 percent among a field of numerous potential presidential candidates like former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley and former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R).

In a poll conducted among Twitter users, Interactive Polls asked respondents to indicate if they would prefer President Donald Trump as the Republican nominee for president in 2024 against DeSantis, Haley, and Pence. Interestingly, the social media poll revealed overall support for President Trump, edging out DeSantis yet again at 49 percent to 47 percent.

As reported by RSBN, a recent Economist/YouGov poll also found that Trump was the number one choice to be the Republican presidential nominee in 2024, coming in with 20 percent of respondents’ support.

Shortly after announcing his official bid for a 2024 presidency, Trump remarked that “The Polls are really strong” headed into the campaign. Although 2024 is two years away, the president’s vice-presidential pick will likely have a big impact on his future polling.

Although there has been no official announcement, potential picks that have been floated in conservative media for vice president include former Acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell and Gov. Ron DeSantis.
