President Donald Trump is the clear frontrunner in South Carolina ahead of his scheduled Saturday rally, where he will celebrate Independence Day with thousands of American patriots in the City of Pickens.
Across multiple GOP primary polls, the 45th president has taken double-digit leads in the Palmetto State, where all other Republican contenders for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination are trailing far behind.
According to data from Race to the WH, Trump held 40 percent of support among South Carolina GOP primary voters compared to Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., who won 19 percent.
Trump was the heavy favorite when it came to who would be best to “improve the economy,” scoring a whopping 47-point lead against DeSantis.
The president also gained ground in South Carolina in a National Public Affairs survey, which found that Trump was holding 41 percent of the vote against DeSantis’s 18 percent. In their poll, Trump has earned three points since May, while DeSantis has lost five.
Just two days before his scheduled appearance in Pickens, President Trump’s campaign announced the members of his South Carolina Grassroots Leadership Team, which includes more than 250 Republican leaders in every county of the state.
Via the Trump campaign, the president’s South Carolina State Director, Austin McCubbin, remarked:
“President Trump continues to demonstrate his commitment to grassroots Republicans in South Carolina. President Trump’s decision to celebrate Independence Day in the historic community of Pickens this weekend shows that every county and every town in America is critical to the America First Movement, and today’s Leadership Team reflects that.”
Nationwide, President Trump is the overwhelming favorite among Republican primary voters to win the GOP nomination in 2024. A recent Fox News poll revealed that Trump was holding a 34-point lead to win next year.
Trump is also polling exceptionally well for the 2024 general election, where he experienced a net swing of seven points in his direction, according to data from YouGov/Economist.
