Shocking Poll Shows Trump's Shot Against Likely 2024 Competitors

Linkedin Share

When former President Donald Trump last week announced his official intent to run for the White House again in 2024, there was some rather obvious strategy involved in the timing of the decision.

It was a rather early declaration, as far as the former “norms” were concerned, but there was nothing normal about Trump’s presidency…perhaps we should have expected such.

And, being that it was early, (and that Trump is still very much the presumptive nominee for the GOP in ’24), there was a lot of talk about other possible candidates being “frozen out” of the, believing that they should save their favors and resources for 2028 instead.

But, instead, we’ve begun to see an increasing number of Republicans hinting at their own interest in a presidential bid.

While this surge of possibilities seems to be running afoul of Trump’s intentions, a new poll seems to suggest that he hadn’t much to worry about.

Former President Donald J. Trump holds a towering 30-point lead over the rest of the potential 2024 Republican primary field, according to a poll.

In an Emerson College Polling survey released Tuesday, 55.1 percent of registered voters said they would vote for Trump in the 2024 GOP primary, placing him 30.3 points ahead of his nearest competitor, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL). The Florida governor garnered 24.8 percent of the response.

The rest of the possible candidates were polling far worse than that.

Former Vice President Mike Pence came in third place as 7.5 percent of participants said they would back him, and 3.6 percent would support outgoing Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), the vice chair of the January 6th Select Committee. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) drew support from 3.4 percent of poll participants. While the entire poll surveyed 1,380 registered voters, the question asking poll participants who they would support in the GOP primary had a sample size of 614 respondents.

Trump still has some legal and political risks ahead, but knowing Teflon Don, there may not be much issue there, either.
