(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) Donald Trump leads in double digits in national 2024 Republican primary surveys because non-white people support him more than Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
Despite the leftists’ constant portrayal of Trump as a racist, he was up an average of 55% to 26% over DeSantis among Republican and right-leaning independent non-white voters in an average of the two polls: CNN/SSRS and Quinnipiac University. The combined sample size of non-white voters for both polls is about 200 people — large enough to know that Trump actually has an advantage when it comes to non-white voters, according to CNN.
The percentage difference among white Republican voters was well within the margin of error: 38% for Trump and 37% for DeSantis.
CNN reported that the reason why Trump is so popular among non-white right-leaning voters is that, just like in the 2016 primary, he appealed to his base, Republicans whose households pull in less than $50,000 a year. In the CNN poll, Trump led this group of voters by 22 points over DeSantis but trailed him by 13 points among those Republican voters who make at least $50,000 a year. This means that there is a 35-point swing between these two income brackets.
Republican non-white voters are far more likely than white Republicans to have a household income that is less than $50,000 per year, according to CNN. Compared to 28% of white Republican voters who earn less than $50,000 per year, there are almost 50% of non-white Republican voters — 45% — that do earn less than that, a CNN poll stated.
There’s also another factor that would increase Trump’s chances of winning the Republican primary that is tightly connected to his already existing support among non-white voters – non-white people are becoming a larger part of the party. During the 2016 Republican primary season, there were 13% of non-white Republican voters. Today, the number of Republican non-white voters is closer to 18%.
