As Biden’s poll numbers crash ever-lower due to all the present crises in America, from inflation to baby formula, gas prices to a new gun control push, former President Donald Trump just got some great news from a poll conducted by Morning Consult and Politico.
According to that poll, conducted by outlets that are no fans of the former presidents nor right-leaning, President Trump is set up well to succeed in 2024 if he does decide to run, something he has not yet announced but seems to be seriously considering.
The poll asked “If the 2024 Republican presidential primary were being held today, for whom would you vote?” and found that Trump was far and away the favorite, reaping the majority of the vote while Governor DeSantis, the closest competitor, reaped only 18 percent of it. Here are those results:

Further, the poll consulted Democrats, Republicans, and Independents in about equal numbers (within a few percentage points), so the poll doesn’t show that only radical Republicans are supporting Trump and have somehow dominated the party.
Rather, it appears to be that if people were to vote for a Republican, they’d generally prefer Trump to any of the alternatives.
Other polls have found similar results. While Americans generally prefer DeSantis to the other alternatives, when Trump is thrown into the mix, he tends to dominate by a wide margin.
A May poll, for instance, found that Trump dominated by a similarly large margin, reaping a massive 55 percent of the vote and dominating the competition, including a distant DeSantis that only brought in 34 percent of the vote, with the other hopefuls doing far, far worse.
Similarly, a January poll found that Trump dominated the field, reaping a massive 57 percent of the vote compared to the twelve and eleven percent shares that DeSantis and Pence, respectively, were fighting over.
Trump, though he hasn’t yet declared his 2024 attempt at the presidency, has hinted at it and remained vocal about politics. In a recent Truth Social post, for example, he said:
“It is being stated by almost all that Joe Biden is the worst President in history. If inflation is not reigned in, he may go down as an equal combination of Herbert Hoover and Jimmy Carter, with Jimmy’s only words of wisdom being that our Country SHOULD NOT USE MAIL-IN BALLOTS FOR VOTING BECAUSE THEY WILL LEAD TO VERY CORRUPT ELECTIONS!!!”
Whether Trump runs or not, the polls are good news for the MAGA movement generally. That’s because they both show that Trump, the man most associated with MAGA, is incredibly popular, and thus so is his ideology and platform, and that DeSantis, his likely successor, is viewed by many as the next best choice.
Either way, therefore, it looks like Americans will have a MAGA candidate to vote for in 2024, good news for all those who are ready to move on from the RINOs and Con, Inc. hucksters of the Romney and McCain mold.
