President Trump still leads polls for 2024 Republican primary
According to a new poll from Zogby Analytics, President Trump will dominate the 2024 Republican presidential primary.
According to the poll, President Trump, who by most polls remains the most popular Conservative candidate with voters, has a 40% lead over any potential contender.
Although President Trump has not announced that he will run again in 2024, he subtly alluded to it several times. Even without his intentions being announced, 54% of likely Republican voters polled chose him as their preferred primary candidate, in a field that included others considered likely to run, such as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, former Vice President Mike Pence and Senator Ted Cruz.
In a hypothetical primary in which President Trump would not have run, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis leads with 27%. However, one would expect the primary to be much more contentious. In this scenario, polls indicate the primary would be a close contest between Governor DeSantis and former Vice President Pence. However, if Trump does run, Governor DeSantis would come in second, although his score is 42% lower than President Trump’s.
It should also be noted that many polls and bookies have consistently shown President Trump as the potential Republican candidate with the highest odds of beating Joe Biden in 2024.
Between President Trump’s success in selecting numerous primary candidates across the country and this current round of polls — nearly all of which show Trump has a significant lead over all potential challengers — it’s clear that his influence within the Republican Party has not diminished.
