Poll: Most GOP-Leaning Voters Want Trump As Party's Nominee

 March 13, 2023

A recent survey revealed that most Republicans would like to have former President Donald Trump as the 2024 GOP nominee.

The Economist/YouGov poll shows right-leaning voters prefer Trump on the ticket over other possibilities.

"Who do you want to be the Republican Party’s nominee for president in 2024?" the survey asked both Republicans and right-leaners.

"The survey found that among both groups, 63 percent chose Trump, while only 20 percent said 'someone else,'" according to Breitbart. "Another 18 percent said they are not sure."

"Sixty-one percent of Republicans, specifically, said they want Trump as the 2024 GOP nominee, and 69 percent of independents said the same," reported Breitbart. "Additionally, 65 percent of Trump 2020 voters want the former president to be the nominee."

These survey results come on the heels of several other polls that have revealed Trump dominating in the hypothetical 2024 presidential primary field.

A recent Morning Consult survey reveals Trump's support increasing three percent from 50% to 53% in the crowded field.

Breitbart News reported:

The latest survey shows Trump dominating his challengers — some potential, some formally in the race — with a majority, 53 percent, selecting him as their number one choice. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is the only potential challenger who comes remotely close, but even he falls 25 points behind, with just 28 percent support.
