“Trump Skyrockets Ahead, Haley & DeSantis Battle for Second in Latest 2024 GOP Poll

A new poll released by The USA Today shows a clear frontrunner in the Republican field of candidates for the 2024 presidential race. President Donald Trump has a massive 36-point lead over his closest rival, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, who currently is in a tie with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for second place. The poll, which surveyed 1,000+ Republican participants around the United States, found that Donald Trump held a commanding lead in the hypothetical field of Republican presidential hopefuls, with 36% of the vote. Coming in second place was Haley and DeSantis, who each tallied 15% of the vote. The poll also showed that Trump had widespread support among Republicans of all ages and gender, while Haley-DeSantis had greater backing with young voters. Interestingly, the poll showed that former President Barack Obama ranked 4th in the potential Republican presidential candidates list, behind Donald Trump, Nikki Haley and Ron DeSantis. The poll’s results suggest that the Republican party appears to be strongly in favor of President Donald Trump, with his support even amongst the younger generation appearing quite solid. This gives Trump a significant advantage in the next Republican presidential primary, a fact mirrored by the overwhelming reception he received during his 2020 reelection campaign. At the same time, the poll also indicates that Nikki Haley and Ron DeSantis have a solid base of support, with their favorability increasing among the younger voters. This may provide them with a strong base for their own future presidential bids – especially should one of them launch a primary challenge to Trump in 2024. In conclusion, the results of the USA Today poll show that President Donald Trump is the clear frontrunner in the next potential Republican primary race, with Nikki Haley and Ron DeSantis having a solid base of support each to potentially launch challenges. It will be interesting to see if this remains true as the next election cycle draws nearer – in the meanwhile, the poll provides a snapshot of where the GOP stands today.
