President Donald Trump is eating up a field of possible and current political rivals for the 2024 Republican Party presidential nomination. Recent data from TIPP, for example, demonstrated 55 percent of support for Trump from registered Republicans and Republican-leaning Independent voters.
Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., netted 17 percent, illustrating a 6-point loss for the governor since April in their poll, while Trump gained 8 points.
Former Vice President Mike Pence accrued 6 percent of support, and former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley snagged 4 percent. Businessman Vivek Ramaswamy scored 4 percent of support, and radio show host Larry Elder snagged just 1 percent.
RSBN recently reported on the impressive leads that Trump is holding in states like Iowa and Kentucky. For example, Trump is leading by a staggering 56 points in Kentucky, scoring a whopping 70 percent of support among Republican primary voters.
In a National Research poll that looked at the 2024 Iowa Republican Caucus, Trump scored 44 percent of support and DeSantis won 26 percent.
The 45th president is additionally leading strongly in Texas, where a CWS Research poll found that he held a 38-point lead over DeSantis in the Lone Star State.
Interestingly, Trump also beat Gov. DeSantis in the Florida leader’s home state, where a Florida Atlantic University poll found that in a head-to-head matchup Trump pulled an impressive 59 percent of support from GOP primary voters against DeSantis’s 31 percent.
“According to the poll, Trump would win over DeSantis by a significant margin if the primary were held when the poll was completed between April 13-14. When the same group of voters was asked about their choice for the upcoming Republican presidential primary, approximately 6 out of 10 (59 percent) chose Trump, while about 3 out of 10 (31 percent) chose DeSantis.”
