Former President Donald Trump is enjoying his largest lead yet
A recent Morning Consult survey analyzing the potential 2024 Republican primary field revealed Trump's growing lead.
"The survey, updated once weekly, found Trump’s lead jumping five percent over the last week," reported Breitbart. "He now stands with 58 percent support in the potential 2024 Republican primary field, compared to the 53 percent he garnered last week."
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is still in the second-place position, but he lost support this week, slipping from 24% support to 21%.
Trump now boasts a lead over DeSantis of 37% — up from 29% last week.
Trump blows other candidates out of the water, with no one coming close. Former Vice President Mike Pence comes in third place with just 7% support.
"Every other individual listed has three percent support or less. Declared GOP candidates Nikki Haley and Vivek Ramaswamy have three percent support each, and former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson is at one percent support," reports Breitbart.

Morning Consult reported:
Trump Seen as More Electable than DeSantis: Despite a relatively poor record of electoral success during the past three election cycles, a majority of potential Republican primary voters (54%) say Trump has the best chance of beating Biden in the 2024 general election, compared with 1 in 4 who say DeSantis. College-educated primary voters are more likely than those without a degree to say that DeSantis has a better chance of beating Biden next year.
