When it comes to the 2024 election and Republicans, Trump is still out in front.
A new survey has found that in a hypotherical GOP primary for 2024, Trump leads the field by double digits.
Of course, anything could change between now and then.
Breitbart News reports:
Survey: Trump Leads Potential Opponents by Double-Digits in Hypothetical 2024 GOP Primary
Former President Donald J. Trump maintains a double-digit lead over his potential opponents in a hypothetical 2024 Republican primary survey.
Morning Consult’s latest “2024 GOP Primary Tracker” survey, conducted from January 6-8, shows that 46 percent of potential Republican primary voters support Trump in his bid for the presidential nomination. Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) sits 13 points back in second place with 33 percent, while nine percent of respondents back former Vice President Mike Pence. No other candidate came close to approaching double-digit support.
Three percent say they would vote for former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), while Former Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) each have two percent of the support. Gov. Greg Abbott (R-FL), Sen Tim Scott (R-SC), and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo sit at one percent apiece.
There is a very slight change in Trump’s favor compared to another Morning Consult survey published on January 4. That data showed Trump with 45 percent of the respondents’ support, DeSantis at 34 percent, and another eight percent backing Pence.
Among those in the current survey who plan to vote for Trump, 44 percent say Desantis is their second choice, followed by Pence at 20 percent and Cruz at eight percent. Another three percent say Haley is their second pick.
Trump is already making some bold promises.
Former President Trump says that, if he’s elected president in 2024, he will order the US military to crush Mexican drug cartels and show them “no mercy.”
Trump also blamed “Biden’s open border policies” for fueling drug-related deaths among Americans. https://t.co/SxlYRrGetJ
