President Donald Trump is winning yet again in the great state of Tennessee, cementing an impressive 49-point lead in the 2024 GOP primary nomination battle, according to the Beacon Center of Tennessee.
According to their data, President Trump has won an overwhelming 61 percent of support among the state’s primary GOP voters, leaving only 12 percent of support for runner-up and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R).
Via a statement, the Trump campaign noted that DeSantis’s poll crash in Tennessee indicates that he is “falling closer to 3rd place.”
Further, the Beacon poll found that in a general election matchup between Trump and Joe Biden, President Trump held a 21-point lead over his Democrat opponent at 51 percent against Biden’s 32 percent.
This week, new data showed that Trump is strongly leading among younger voters across the nation in addition to his dominant position in statewide GOP primary polls like New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Iowa.
Per RSBN, Trump is holding a 50-point lead against DeSantis when it comes to favorability with voters under the age of 45, via a Fox News poll. Incredibly, DeSantis, who is just 44 years old, seems to have been wholly rejected by Republican voters in his own demographic.
Trump is also leading comfortably with GOP female voters, according to an Economist/YouGov poll, which found that the president was preferred by women as the 2024 presidential Republican nominee by 54 percent compared to DeSantis at 16 percent.
On a state-by-state basis, the 45th president is dominating the race for the Republican nomination, continuing to gain points while DeSantis seems to be losing traction with GOP primary voters.
In Texas, for example, President Trump has 51 percent of primary support while DeSantis has 19 percent, according to CWS Research.
Via their data, Trump has gained 4 points since May and DeSantis has lost 4 points.
