Donald Trump Maintains Massive Lead In New Poll 

( A recent poll from the Trump campaign’s pollster shows their candidate leading Joe Biden in a possible 2024 rematch. 

The McLaughlin poll released last Thursday showed Trump with a 5-point lead over the deeply unpopular Biden, 48 percent to 43 percent. 

Additionally, the Trump pollster found that Trump is leading Biden by 10 points in so-called “swing” states, 51 percent to 41 percent. 

Among the potential Republican primary field of 13 candidates, Trump’s pollster has the former president in the lead with 46 percent with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in second place with 23 percent. 

However, campaign-generated polls are notoriously unreliable as they tend to skew toward the campaign’s candidate. 

Over the weekend, Axios reported that Public Opinion Strategies polled Republican voters both in Iowa and New Hampshire and found that Governor DeSantis is faring much better in early primary states than he is in national primary surveys. 

In head-to-head matchups, DeSantis holds an 8-point lead over Trump in Iowa, 45 percent to 37 percent, and is tied with Trump in New Hampshire 39 percent to 39 percent. 

When polling in a more crowded field, the Iowa survey showed DeSantis tied with Trump while the New Hampshire survey has Trump 12 points over DeSantis. 

In the favorable/unfavorable polling, Ron DeSantis has a much higher net favorability over Trump in both Iowa and New Hampshire. 

In Iowa, DeSantis holds a 70-point net favorability among Republicans while Trump’s net favorability is 50 points. 

In New Hampshire, DeSantis enjoys a net favorability of 62 points among Republicans while Trump’s net favorability is 40 points. 

On electability, 54 percent of Iowa Republicans believe DeSantis is more electable while 44 percent believe Trump is more electable. 

In New Hampshire, 48 percent of Republicans believe DeSantis is more electable while 46 percent believe Trump is. 

Additionally, 68 percent of Iowa Republicans believe Ron DeSantis has a better temperament than Trump. Similarly, 71 percent of New Hampshire Republicans say the same.
