Former President Donald Trump holds a double-digit lead in Utah, according to a recent poll.
A Predictive Insights survey took an early reading of the general considerations of Republican Utah voters, at just over a year ahead of the 2024 presidential primaries.
"The survey listed 12 potential candidates, including Trump, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), former Vice President Mike Pence, former Rep. Liz Cheney, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), former U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), former Gov. Chris Christie, Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R-VA), Gov. Kristi Noem (R-SD), former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and celebrity Kanye West," reports Breitbart.
According to the survey, Trump takes a double-digit lead in Utah, besting DeSantis by 13%.
Trump achieved a 42% approval rating as compared to DeSantis' 29%.
"The survey also found that most, 58 percent and 55 percent, respectively, would be happy if Trump or DeSantis were the Republican nominee in 2024," reports Breitbart. "No other candidate garnered over 50 percent satisfaction for that scenario. Just 40 percent, for example, said they would be satisfied if Pence were the nominee, and 36 percent said the same of Cruz."

"The survey coincides with a recent Harvard-Harris survey," according to Breitbart, "showing Trump taking a clear lead over President Biden in a hypothetical 2024 presidential matchup, leading 46 percent to 41 percent."
