According to a poll conducted by Emerson College, former President Donald Trump has received support from about 60% of Americans nationwide, while his primary opponents have all dropped to single digits. He also has a slight edge over President Joe Biden in a hypothetical general election.
Trump is more than 50 points ahead of his closest rival. Both former Republican South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley and current Florida Governor Ron DeSantis get 8 points, while former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is behind at 4 percent.
Vivek Ramaswamy, an entrepreneur, and Mike Pence, former vice president, each have 3 percent. Gov. Doug Burgum (R-ND), Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), Larry Elder (conservative radio host), Perry Johnson (businessman), and ex-Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R-AR) each gets 1% of the vote.
Ten percent more of those polled still haven’t made up their minds.
Donald Trump holds a slim advantage with a 47 percent to 45 percent edge over President Joe Biden in a hypothetical matchup. In this case, 8% of respondents do not have a firm opinion. According to the poll’s crosstabs, Trump does better with independents (44 % to 40 %) and younger voters (55% to 44 %).
A report shows that after declaring last week that he would suspend his candidacy for president in 2024, Michigan businessman and Republican Perry Johnson backed former president Donald Trump on Monday.
On X, Johnson said he was suspending his candidacy and throwing his support behind Trump. To prevent the disastrous presidency of jJoeBiden, we must elect Donald Trump.
Conservative talk radio broadcaster Larry Elder ended his 2024 Republican presidential candidacy on Thursday and endorsed former president Donald Trump.
He urged we should rally behind Trump to defeat Joe Biden. He also believed his campaign had raised awareness of crime and fatherlessness and that America is not a racist nation.
In a statement, Elder said he had decided to drop his campaign and endorse Trump after much thought and discussion with his staff. He said that Trump’s leadership was crucial in implementing conservative, America-first policies that have benefitted the United States.
