New Poll Sees Trump Ahead of Biden, DeSantis

A poll from Morning Consult revealed that Trump holds a strong lead over Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) and a smaller lead over Biden for the 2024 presidential election.

The poll found that Biden is ahead of DeSantis when singularly pitted against each other, but Trump leads both presidential candidates when put against the other.

According to the poll, 57% of Republican voters would vote for Trump over DeSantis (19%).

Followed by DeSantis were Mike Pence (7%) and Vivek Ramaswamy (6%).

Between Trump and Biden, 44% would vote for Trump and 41% would vote for Biden.

Forty-two percent of voters would vote for Biden over DeSantis (40%).

Eli Yokely from Morning Consult noted, “These numbers may be best considered as a test of electability — a key issue in party primaries that carries all the more significance this time around given concerns about Trump’s baggage and whether the GOP should work to maintain Trump’s coalition or to try to expand its base.”

The poll also found that despite his ongoing legal problems, Trump remains favorable with about three-in-four potential Republican primary voters, the highest rating of all the GOP candidates.

Morning Consult surveyed 3,650 potential Republican primary voters for questions about the 2024 GOP presidential primary, with a margin of error of +/- 1 to 2 percentage points, and polled a nationally representative sample of 5,000 registered voters for questions about the general election with a margin of error of +/- 1 percentage point.
