On Wednesday, Emerson College Polling released their September national poll, which found leading Republican presidential contender and 45th President Donald J. Trump with his biggest polling lead yet over his Republican primary competition.
"The September Emerson College Polling national survey of U.S. voters finds former President Donald Trump with a 47-point lead over his closest competitor in the Republican Presidential Primary, his largest lead since tracking this race in June 2022," Emerson College Polling writes, adding that Trump's lead is nine points higher than it was in August. This comes after Trump opted to skip the first GOP debate. While that was a controversial decision, it appears not to have hurt the 45th president in the minds of Republican voters.
The poll finds Trump grabbing 59 percent of likely GOP voter support. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) trails far behind, drawing only 12 percent of voter support. Vivek Ramaswamy (R-OH) is the only other candidate with over five percent of voter support -- grabbing a measly seven percent support. This poll demonstrates what we already knew -- this race is Treump's to lose. The Trump campaign operates like a well-oiled machine, poised to stop whatever GOP opponents are in the way.
As such, Trump voters are rallying around the 45th president in record numbers. Simply put, Trump is in as strong of a position with Republican voters as ever. Trump is still the decisive leader in the Republican field, and he and his campaign show no signs of slipping up. The MAGA movement is thriving, and Republican voters continue to appreciate Trump's America First vision for the nation at large. If other Republicans want to bridge the gap between them and Trump, they must change their strategy big league. But as of right now, the coveted 2024 Republican presidential nomination is certainly Donald J. Trump's to lose.
More impressively, Trump remains a potent force to win the presidency in 2024. The Real Clear Politics polling average has Biden and Trump neck and neck in most surveys. Donald Trump has even managed to take the lead away from Joe Biden in recent polls. As such, it stands to reason that the radical, far-left Democrats would use any means necessary to gain a much-needed political advantage -- including indicting their most likely political opponent.
Indeed, the Emerson Poll finds that while Trump and Biden are tied in a head-to-head matchup, when Green Party candidate Cornell West is added into the mix, Trump has a one-point lead on Biden -- grabbing 43 percent of the vote compared to Biden's 42 percent support. 11 percent of voters remain undecided.
These are great numbers that surely make the Trump campaign very happy.
