The latest Fox News poll shows that former President Trump remains the clear favorite among Republican primary voters for the 2024 Republican nomination.
Trump maintains a commanding lead at 43%, with the closest competitor being Ron DeSantis at 28%. It appears that the rest of the potential Republican candidates will have a hard time competing with Trump. Trump’s base is strong and with the majority of Republican voters being in favor of Trump, it looks like he will be the clear choice for the party’s nomination in 2024.
Nikki Haley and former Vice President Mike Pense are both currently polling around 7%. If Trump were to falter, DeSantis would be the favorite to take the nomination, as he is the fallback option for many of Trump’s supporters.
The 2024 Republican primary election is still over a year away, but the Fox News poll makes it clear that former President Trump currently has a commanding lead over the competition.
