Poll: Trump Still Favorite in GOP Primary Field

 March 22, 2023

Former President Donald Trump is still the favorite.

"Trump is maintaining his status as the most favorable candidate in the potential 2024 Republican presidential field," reports Breitbart.

The report comes after a Morning Consult survey showing Trump with a 77% favorability rating.

"Trump did not lose any favorability this week, maintaining his status as 77 percent have a favorable view of him, compared to 20 percent who do not. That 20 percent is down from the 21 percent who viewed him unfavorably in last week’s results," reports Breitbart.

Florida's Governor Ron DeSantis comes in second place with 67%.

Nine percent say they have never heard of DeSantis and 11% say they have heard of him but have no opinion.

"Trump does not face the hurdle of a lack of recognizability. Meanwhile, another 13 percent view DeSantis unfavorably. That is also one point less than the 14 percent who viewed the Sunshine State governor unfavorably last week," reports Breitbart.

"This also coincides with Trump growing in popularity among Republicans, as he has expanded his lead over DeSantis from +24 last week to +28 this week. Trump gained two points of support in the last week, jumping from 52 percent to 54 percent, while DeSantis lost two points, going from 28 percent to 26 percent," reported Breitbart.
