A new poll has good news for former President and 2024 GOP candidate Donald Trump.
According to an Emerson College poll, Trump has 55% support in a hypothetical 2024 GOP primary, with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis coming in second with 25%.
No other candidate has double-digit support.
“There is a stark education divide among Republican primary voters,” Emerson College Polling Executive Director Spencer Kimball. “A 71% majority of voters with a high school degree or less support Trump in 2024, whereas 14% support DeSantis.
“A 53% majority of those with a college degree, some college, or associate’s degree, support Trump while 28% support DeSantis. By contrast, Republican voters with a postgraduate degree are most split: 32% support Trump, 29% support DeSantis, and 18% support Mike Pence for the Republican nomination.”
Younger voters also break for Trump.
“Younger voters under 50 break for Trump over DeSantis 67% to 14%,” Kimball said. “Voters between 50 and 64 break for Trump 54% to 32%, while Republicans over 65 are more split: 39% support Trump and 32% DeSantis.”
