The Washington, D.C. swamp was hoping Joe Biden’s weaponized Justice Department would end Donald Trump’s political career.
But the former President keeps gaining support.
And now Donald Trump was grinning from ear-to-ear after seeing this blockbuster 2024 poll.
A bombshell New York Times/Siena poll recently showed that former President Donald Trump leading Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in the Republican primary 54% to 17% while no other candidate registered more than 3% support.
The poll’s internals showed the breadth of Trump’s support as he leads with all age groups and demographics.
“Below those lopsided top-line figures were other ominous signs for Mr. DeSantis,” The New York Times reported. “He performed his weakest among some of the Republican Party’s biggest and most influential constituencies. He earned only 9 percent support among voters at least 65 years old and 13 percent of those without a college degree. Republicans who described themselves as “very conservative” favored Mr. Trump by a 50-point margin, 65 percent to 15 percent.”
DeSantis’ central argument – that he is more electable than Trump – fell flat as Trump led DeSantis 58% to 28% on the question of who is more electable.
The current polling led CNN data and election analyst Harry Enten to write that not only is Trump in a dominant position to win the GOP nomination “but he is in a better position to win the general election than at any point during the 2020 cycle and almost at any point during the 2016 cycle.”
Enten cited a rash of polling that showed Trump tied with or leading President Joe Biden, despite Democrat prosecutors indicting the former President twice.
“What should arguably be more amazing is that despite most Americans agreeing that Trump’s two indictments thus far were warranted, he remains competitive in a potential rematch with President Joe Biden,” Enten wrote. “A poll out last week from Marquette University Law School had Biden and Trump tied percentage-wise (with a statistically insignificant few more respondents choosing Trump).”
“The Marquette poll is one of a number of surveys showing Trump either tied or ahead of Biden,” he added. “The ABC News/Washington Post poll has published three surveys of the matchup between the two, and Trump has come out ahead – albeit within the margin of error – every time. Other pollsters have shown Biden only narrowly ahead.”
A new CBS/YouGuv poll explains why – 61% of Americans believe the economy is going “somewhat badly” or “very badly.”
The economy is always the number one issue in America, and until COVID hit, the economy under Trump was humming and Americans viewed their situation positively.
Donald Trump’s ability to run a compare and contrast campaign against Joe Biden is his best shot at unseating the President as the polls show voters are willing to ignore the Democrat Party’s lawfare against him.
