Well, that didn’t take long! I guess the hype of Governor Ron DeSantis winning Florida by a landslide wore off, and Republicans have finally come back to their senses regarding their top pick for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination. I get it, we all got a little giddy over Ron, but let’s be honest – no one is going to drain the swamp like Donald Trump, and the fact that he’s now leading the polls again by double digits, says it all.
According to an Emerson College poll, Trump has 55% support in a hypothetical 2024 GOP primary, with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis coming in second with 25%. No other candidate has double-digit support.
“There is a stark education divide among Republican primary voters,” Emerson College Polling Executive Director Spencer Kimball. “A 71% majority of voters with a high school degree or less support Trump in 2024, whereas 14% support DeSantis.
“A 53% majority of those with a college degree, some college, or associate’s degree, support Trump while 28% support DeSantis. By contrast, Republican voters with a postgraduate degree are most split: 32% support Trump, 29% support DeSantis, and 18% support Mike Pence for the Republican nomination.”
Younger voters also break for Trump.
“Younger voters under 50 break for Trump over DeSantis 67% to 14%,” Kimball said. “Voters between 50 and 64 break for Trump 54% to 32%, while Republicans over 65 are more split: 39% support Trump and 32% DeSantis.”
Interactive polls also have Donald Trump on top again by a landslide, as reporting of GOP primary candidates surfaced Wednesday on Twitter. Albeit not as high as Emerson, Politico/Morning Consult shows Trump leading by 45% with DeSantis at 30% and others massively behind.
