President Trump has captured wide support in the great state of Kentucky as the 2024 presidential season has begun to pick up steam, according to new data from Emerson College.

Per their findings, the president holds a whopping 56-point lead for the Republican 2024 presidential nomination, netting 70 percent of support among a field of potential primary candidates like Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., and former Vice President Mike Pence, along with declared candidates like former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley.

In that poll, Gov. DeSantis garnered 14 percent of support from Republicans.

The results of Emerson College’s survey in Kentucky come after a GOP primary poll conducted by Co-efficient found that Trump held a 33-point lead over the field of Republicans. In that same poll, Gov. DeSantis garnered 19 percent of support against Trump’s 52 percent.

The president addressed the recent polling data on his Truth Social account, writing, “Rob DeSanctimonious and his poll numbers are dropping like a rock – I would almost be inclined to say, these are record ‘falls.’ The question: Is ‘Rob’ just young, inexperienced and naive or, more troubling, is he a fool who has no idea what he is doing. We already have one of those in office, we don’t need another one. MAGA!”

DeSantis has not yet officially announced a 2024 presidential bid, it is rumored that he may announce it after Florida’s legislative session comes to a close in May.

A report from NBC6 Miami indicated that the governor’s postulated run for the presidency could happen at any time, based on two sources who say that the DeSantis campaign is allegedly poised to move to a new base of operations this week, which would require financial disclosure requirements.
