It’s All Trump

American Flag

( – Republicans have their minds set and the party seems to have its representative for the 2024 presidential elections as after the latest Fox News survey, conducted from December 10-13, showcases former President Donald Trump’s commanding lead in the Republican primary race, with a striking 69% support from GOP voters.

This marks a significant 7-point increase since November and a substantial 26-point growth since February. In contrast, the combined support for all of Trump’s rivals falls short of one-third, with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis at 12%, former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley at 9%, businessman Vivek Ramaswamy at 5%, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie at 2%, and former Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson at 1%. Notably, each of these opponents, except Hutchinson, has seen a decrease in support over the past month.

Trump’s robust position extends to a hypothetical general election scenario, where he leads President Joe Biden by four points. This trend aligns with other national polls, such as Reuters/Ipsos and Messenger/Harris, which also show Trump ahead of Biden. Interestingly, the Fox poll suggests that Nikki Haley might have a slight edge over Trump in a general election, hypothetically outperforming Biden by six points. The poll also indicates a tie between DeSantis and Biden, a shift from Biden’s narrow lead over all three potential candidates as recently as August.

Additionally, the poll reveals that 5% of voters who supported Biden in the 2020 election might switch their allegiance to Trump if they were to face off again.

This survey, which interviewed 1,007 randomly selected registered voters nationwide, has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points for all registered voters. The margin of error increases to plus or minus 4.5 points for Democratic primary voters and 5 points for Republican primary voters. The data was collected by Beacon Research and Shaw & Company Research for Fox News, providing a comprehensive snapshot of current voter preferences and sentiments.
