President Trump’s polling position ahead of the 2024 GOP presidential primary has never been better, new data from RMG Research has found. According to their survey of GOP voters, they found that the 45th president had 60 percent of support for the nomination next year.
Businessman and Republican presidential contender Vivek Ramaswamy gained three points in their survey and rose to second place with 13 percent of support. By contrast, Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., fell to third place and lost seven points, scoring only eight percent of support.
RMG’s poll was conducted between August 11 and August 14. On Monday, President Trump was indicted for the fourth time this year, this time in Fulton County, Georgia, at the behest of District Attorney Fani Willis. The president was indicted on 41 charges centered on phone calls that he made to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.
18 Trump allies were additionally indicted alongside the president, including lawyers John Eastman, Rudy Giuliani, Jenna Ellis, and former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, RSBN previously reported.
Despite President Trump’s legal battles, his support among Republican voters nationwide has continued to rise significantly.
According to data from Race to the WH, Trump is leading in the Republican primary by double digits in important battleground states like New Hampshire (+35 points), South Carolina (+30 points), Iowa (+26 points), and Nevada (+30 points).
A nationwide poll from Morning Consult also found that President Trump dominated the primary field with a 41-point lead, with DeSantis holding onto second place with 16 percent of support and Ramaswamy again coming in third with nine percent.
However, Ramaswamy has gained considerable favorability among GOP voters across the country in the last few weeks. The most recent Kaplan Strategies Republican primary poll found that Ramaswamy had secured the runner-up position behind Trump with 11 percent of Republican support. In that poll, DeSantis fell to third place with 10 percent.
