A new poll has revealed Trump’s substantial lead as he looks to reclaim the top spot in his beloved Republican party – but will he beat Biden in the race for the country’s hot seat?
Trump and DeSantis Take a Dip
In a stunning revelation, a recent Wall Street Journal poll exposed that Donald Trump was a force to be reckoned with, securing a whopping 59 percent of Republican primary voters’ support.
According to the WSJ’s poll, Trump left his competition in the dust, boasting a staggering 46-point lead over Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
The survey, which gathered opinions from 600 Republican primary voters in late August through telephone and web surveys, showed DeSantis trailing by 13 points compared to April and cementing a dominating lead.
DeSantis’ favorability rating took a hit since the April survey, with the percentage of respondents viewing him favorably plummeting from 84 percent to 70 percent. Even Trump’s favorability dipped slightly, moving from 78 percent to 75 percent between the two polls.
The results would be astonishing if the 2024 presidential contest between Trump and Joe Biden were held today. Both candidates stood at 46 percent, with 8 percent of voters undecided.
A broader survey of 1,500 registered voters, including third-party choices, revealed Trump leading Biden 40 percent to 39 percent, with lesser-known third-party candidates barely making a dent and 17 percent undecided.
Beyond Trump and DeSantis, the GOP primary field showcased other candidates, but none came close, with only 8 percent of respondents favoring former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, while newcomer and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy secured 5 percent.
Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie garnered 3 percent, and former Vice President Mike Pence and Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) managed to pull in 2 percent.
Haley, Ramaswamy, and Christie managed to slightly increase their supporter’s share since the April survey, though these gains were in the single digits.
The poll also unearthed a striking belief held by the majority of respondents. They overwhelmingly regarded Trump’s four indictments as politically motivated instead of justice for his criminal activity.
All respondents were aware of these cases, and more than 60 percent asserted that each case lacked merit and was driven by political motivations.
Trump’s commanding lead in the GOP field and his neck-and-neck tie with Biden are reshaping the political landscape. Could this be the start of a Trump comeback?
DeSantis’ decline in favorability and inability to gain ground on Trump signal potential challenges ahead. Can he regain his footing?
The prospect of a Trump vs. Biden rematch is electrifying. With both candidates tied, who will emerge victorious in 2024?
Other GOP candidates find themselves far behind the Trump-DeSantis juggernaut despite their efforts. Can anyone catch up?
Trump’s grip on the GOP remains firm. As he continues to dominate, what’s next for the Republican Party?
DeSantis faces an uphill battle in winning over Trump’s loyal supporters as nothing seems to stop them from supporting their man.
