(Ezekiel Loseke, Headline USA) President Donald Trump has amassed a significant lead over Fla. Gov. Ron DeSantis in their race to win the Republican nomination for President in the 2024 election, according to several polling outlets.
Rasmussen, one of the few polls that has regularly correctly projected elections including President Trump, reports that its polling estimated Trump held a lead of 13 points as of Friday, as reported by Breitbart News. The poll included 900 people, 45% said they preferred Trump to DeSantis in a head-to-head matchup, while 32% said they preferred DeSantis to Trump.
Another poll, this one by Harvard and Harris, shows Trump up over DeSantis by 23 points. It was also released on Friday, as reported by RealClear Politics.
Yet another poll, this one by Quinnipiac, projected Trump to have a smaller lead, 6 points, and was released on Thursday.
Another poll, this one by Reuters shows President Trump up by 12 points and was released on Tuesday.
These polls follow the established pattern of polling as reported by RealClearPolitics.
The Polls show Trump consistently leading DeSantis, and almost all of these leads are above the standard margin of error.
The highest projected Trump lead was 58 points in November in a poll taken by Harvard and Harris.
The smallest projected lead was 5 points in December in a poll by Cygnal.
The RealClearPolitics average shows Trump up by 15.4 points.
DeSantis, though down in the polls, has received outside help while trying to secure the nomination. George Soros, the infamous globalist oligarch, recently attacked Trump while praising DeSantis.
“DeSantis is shrewd, ruthless, and ambitious,” Soros said. “He is likely to be the Republican candidate.”
“[Trump] has turned into a pitiful figure continually bemoaning his loss in 2020. Big Republican donors are abandoning him in droves.”
Soros continued to attack Trump.
“Trump is a deeply flawed character, a confidence trickster whose narcissism grew into a disease,” he said. “As president, he was more interested in hobnobbing with dictators than in promoting democratic principles.”
