A brand new poll has revealed that former President Donald Trump has a massive 30-point lead in the Republican Party primary field in the race to decide who will represent the GOP in the 2024 presidential race, according to a survey that was conducted by Emerson College.
According to Newsmax, Trump currently has 55 percent support in a hypothetical 2024 GOP primary as of right now. Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis is in second place with 25 percent the poll revealed. There isn’t a single other Republican candidate that reaches double-digit support.
It’s clear that American conservative voters want one of these two men to be leading our country from the White House in 2024. Trump is, at this moment, the individual they want to see in the Oval Office repairing the damage left behind by President Joe Biden and completing his America First agenda.
“There is a stark education divide among Republican primary voters,” Emerson College Polling Executive Director Spencer Kimball stated concerning the poll’s results. “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,” he continued.

Kimball then pointed out the notable age difference between Trump and DeSantis supporters.
“Younger voters under 50 break for Trump over DeSantis 67% to 14%,” Kimball noted. “Voters between 50 and 64 break for Trump 54% to 32%, while Republicans over 65 are more split: 39% support Trump and 32% DeSantis.”
Trump made the official announcement about his candidacy last week with an event held at his Florida Mar-a-Lago residence, which was raided this past summer by the FBI who seized a number of classified documents at the residence.
As of now, DeSantis, who stomped his competition into oblivion during the midterms a couple of weeks ago, has not made his intentions for 2024 clear. It seems as if he is seriously focused on continuing the work he started in Florida rather than setting his sights on national politics.
Here’s more from Newsmax:
Biden’s job approval pretty much remains the same as the previous Emerson poll, before the midterms when he had 39% approval and 53% disapproval ratings. In a hypothetical 2024 Democrat primary, Emerson College found that Biden holds a 42% plurality of support, followed by Vice President Kamala Harris (17%) and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. (12%).
In a potential 2024 presidential election between Biden and Trump, Biden holds a 45% to 41% lead over Trump. A total of 9% would support someone else, and 6% are undecided. If DeSantis were the 2024 GOP nominee, he trails Biden 39% to 43%. A total of 11% would support someone else, and 8% are undecided.
An Emerson College polling representative said the GOP primary results are based only on voters who plan to vote in the Republican primary or caucus in their states. The Democrat primary results were based on voters who plan to vote in the Democratic Party primary or caucus in their states.
The survey featured 1,380 U.S. voters was conducted between the dates of Nov. 18-19, 2022.
At the end of the day, our country would be blessed by the leadership of either of these two men, as they are significantly better in their policies than any Democrat out there.
