A recent survey found President Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) prevailing in a hypothetical 2024 GOP primary. In the survey, Republican voters were highly in favor of Trump who took 67 percent of the vote. Whereas, DeSantis also reportedly saw double-digit support at ten percent.
Former Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley fell in third place with seven percent, followed by former Vice President Mike Pence with six percent. However when Trump was taken out of the running, DeSantis led with 32 percent support.
“This data suggests that Republicans want either Trump or a Trumpian candidate to be their nominee, or half of them may split from the party,” said Spencer Kimball, director of Emerson College Polling.
