President Donald Trump has resoundingly cemented his leadership over the field of GOP presidential candidates in the race for the 2024 Republican primary nomination in the great state of Iowa.
According to the newest National Research poll looking at GOP primary voters in Iowa, 44 percent of Republican voters prefer President Trump as their choice to win the presidential nomination next year, while 21 percent preferred Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla.
Per their data, this indicates a 5-point gain for Trump in Iowa since June and a 3-point loss for DeSantis.
Trump’s 23-point lead in Iowa is one of many state leads that he has been holding over the past few months. According to RSBN, the president is also leading by a whopping 49 points in Tennessee, via the Beacon Center of Tennessee.
Trump is additionally strongly leading in Texas by 32 points, according to CWS Research.
On Friday, countless supporters showed up strongly in rainy weather, forming long lines down the streets of Council Bluffs, Iowa, to support President Trump during an anticipated rally appearance.
This is President Trump’s second rally in less than one week. Last Saturday, he drew thousands of people to Pickens, South Carolina, for a Make America Great Again rally in honor of the 4th of July.
In Iowa, voters are heavily concerned about issues surrounding agriculture and ethanol production. President Trump has long touted his popularity with the farmers of America. Earlier this year, he promised Iowans at a Davenport education policy event that he would “cancel every Biden policy that’s brutalizing our farmers.”
He said of his first term in the White House, “We put workers first, we put farmers first, and above all, we put America first.”
