Trump Leads DeSantis by Double Digits in Primary Poll Ahead of Expected 2024 Run Announcement

The Donald is still The Man, according to a new poll.

A Politico/Morning Consult poll conducted after last week’s midterm elections showed that 47 percent of Republicans and independents aligned with the GOP would support former President Donald Trump if a Republican presidential primary were held today .

That puts Trump at the forefront of the poll, which polled 1,983 registered voters with a margin of error of plus or minus two percentage points. The GOP question had a sample of 842 people.

Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, whose slam-dunk win last Tuesday and energetic post-win speech made him a success story, on a night when hoped-for success danced heavily out of reach of the GOP, finished at 33 Percent support took second place.

After that, it was a single-digit world, with former Vice President Mike Pence leading the remaining 14 names in the poll with 5 percent support.

The poll was somewhat contradictory: 31 percent said Trump should definitely or probably run again, while 65 said definitely or probably not.

The poll showed Trump had a positive rating of 40 percent.

A report in Politico’s poll, noting that “it’s still Trump’s party,” said Trump is unlikely to move on to the nomination, with possible rivals including DeSantis, Pence and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

The fallout from the events of January 6, 2021, the lawsuits filed against him in New York, and the current dust over his handling of classified documents are also potential issues that could derail a campaign two years from now for the 2024 election.

But there are those in sync with Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik of New York, who has been backing Trump even before he announced he would run.

“I am proud to support Donald Trump for the presidency in 2024,” said Stefanik. “It’s time for Republicans to unite around America’s most popular Republican with a proven track record of conservative governance.”

In an op-ed in The New York Times, Kevin Williamson, while largely belittling Trump, established why Trump holds power among Republicans.

“It will not be easy to oust Mr. Trump. His bond with his supporters is personal — based on a promise to humiliate the cultural enemies of the right, not politics, and unconstrained by passing events such as a disappointing mid-term record,” he wrote.
