President Trump is set to triumph yet again in a 2024 presidential primary race, with a new Morning Consult poll finding that the 45th president is easily dominating a field of potential hopefuls.
Per their findings, Trump leads the field with a whopping 48 percent of support, while DeSantis trails with 31 percent among Republican primary voters.
As reported by RSBN, Trump’s reemergence as the solid lead in the potential primary race comes after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) appeared to be gaining momentum following the November midterm elections.
However, Trump has maintained his position as the top choice for the nomination in the eyes of the American people.
According to the Morning Consult Poll, other potential political rivals heading into the primary did not manage to net more than single-digit support:
- Former Vice President Mike Pence: 8 percent
- Former Sen. Liz Cheney: 3 percent
- Sen. Ted Cruz, R- Texas: 2 percent
- Gov. Greg Abbott, R-Texas: 1 percent
- Gov. Kristi Noem, R-S.D.: 1 percent
- Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley: 2 percent
- Former CIA Director Mike Pompeo: 1 percent
- Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C.: 1 percent
- Gov. Glenn Youngkin, R-Va.: 0 percent
Via RSBN, President Trump is gearing up to hit the campaign trail with enthusiasm in 2023, teasing supporters in a new statement this week that he would be holding “MANY GIANT RALLIES and other events coming up soon.” He added, “We will save our Country from DOOM and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
Interestingly, Morning Consult’s survey found that Trump is holding onto a “substantial average with the youngest part of the GOP’s potential electorate.” For example, 61 percent of Republican primary voters under 45 said they would support the president in his bid to reclaim the White House in 2024.
For those voters surveyed, they indicated that their second choice for the Republican Party’s nomination in 2024 was Gov. DeSantis.
