Trump’s Huge Lead, You’ll Never Guess WHO He Is Leaving Behind In Recent Pools

In a recent survey, former President Donald Trump has taken a commanding lead in the 2024 GOP primary race.

The latest numbers show that Trump has a 54% to 26% advantage over Governor Ron DeSantis, marking a significant 28-point gap.

This “rally around” effect is likely due to the potential indictment of the former president.

If the primary or caucus were held today, more than half of potential Republican primary voters would support Trump, while only 26% would back DeSantis.

This survey also found that DeSantis is the second choice of 46% of those who are supporting Trump, while 43% of DeSantis’ supporters view Trump as their backup option. It also revealed that a larger percentage of Trump supporters were unsure of their second choice, compared to DeSantis’ supporters.

It’s no secret that Trump began his presidential campaign with the bulk of the Republican electorate behind him. However, his grip is being put to the test ahead of the 2024 nominating contests.

Morning Consult surveys are tracking the Republican primary electorate’s views of Trump and other declared or potential candidates, as well as how he fares with the wider electorate.

This is a key metric for a party looking to turn the tide on recent electoral disappointments. In a hypothetical head-to-head match-up, Biden is shown to have a 3-point lead over Trump and a 2-point lead over DeSantis.

These numbers are crucial in testing electability, a vital issue in party primaries, particularly this time around due to concerns about Trump’s baggage and whether the GOP should focus on maintaining Trump’s coalition or expanding its base.
