Trump Makes It Look Easy As The Gap Between Him And DeSantis Grows To Biggest Lead Yet: POLL

Donald Trump is entirely unwilling to release his vice grip on the Republican primary with the latest polling putting the New York business mogul an astounding 56 percent ahead of second place Ron DeSantis (R-FL) who is struggling to gain any ground in the race.

The poll comes from Tipp Insights who ran an online national poll between August 30 and September 1 asking 509 Republican voters “If the Republican presidential primary were held today, whom would you support for the nomination?” The poll noted a +/- 4.4 percent margin or error.

Former President Trump has managed to keep his hold on the gold pedestal, expanding the gap between him and second place. He has managed to see a consistent uptick in polling percentage, going from 55 percent in June to 57 percent in August, and now 60 percent in September.

Second place is held by Ron DeSantis, who holds 12 percent of the votes while third place belongs to Vivek Ramaswamy (R-OH) with eight percent of the votes. The 49-point difference between DeSantis and Trump is now the largest that Tipp Insights has recorded so far, a difference that was only a surmountable 29-point gap back in March of this year.

The majority of those asked also believe that Trump is the most likely candidate to be able to beat Biden in 2024, with 56 percent saying he has the most “electability.” DeSantis, as always, trails in second place with 13 percent while Ramaswamy nabs third with eight percent. 

There was also a separate poll asking 606 Democrats who they would vote for in a Democratic primary. Despite being essentially the only choice, President Joe Biden only got a disappointing 38 percent support, extremely poor polling numbers for the frontrunner. 

Numerous other names followed the sitting Commander in Chief such as former First Lady Michelle Obama at nine percent support, current Vice President Kamala Harris at 7 percent support, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) at six percent, 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton with five percent, and Robert Kennedy Jr. (D) with four percent. 

After Biden, the largest support group was “somebody else” which 20 percent of respondents indicated. Another ten percent said that they were “not sure” who they supported.

While the polls from the Democrats' side give little confidence in the coming election, it’s sure that the Republicans have rallied behind Trump. With over half of GOP respondents giving their support to the former president, it’s essentially a done deal that he will be securing the nomination.
