Trump dominates favorability rating in GOP primary polls

September 24, 2023

Former President Donald Trump is facing numerous obstacles in his quest to secure the GOP nomination and eventually the White House next year.

From indictments to civil lawsuits to years of negative media coverage, the former president has taken it all, from all sides. But it seems to be having the opposite effect of what his critics and opponents had hoped for.

According to Breitbart, a recent Morning Consult survey showed Trump dominating the favorability polls within the Republican Party, scoring a staggering 80% approval rate from potential Republican primary voters.

Only 19% didn't view him favorably in the bombshell survey. Trump led his GOP opponents in the survey by an impressive amount.

Breitbart noted:

Notably, Trump’s unfavorable percentage is actually lower than Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’s, as 21 percent have an unfavorable view of the presidential hopeful. Sixty-seven percent view DeSantis favorably, while nine percent have heard of him but have no opinion.

To compare, Trump's GOP primary opponents struggled to even come close to his 80% favorability rating. Vivek Ramaswamy, one of his competitors with the most aligned viewpoints, scored 58%.

Former Vice President Mike Pence, who is despised by a large portion of the massive MAGA voting base, only managed to wrangle 48% favorability, with 42% of potential GOP primary voters viewing him unfavorably.

Breitbart added:

Most, 51 percent, have an unfavorable view of former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, and former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson shares in his plight of having an unfavorable rating under water.

While the former president is forced to spend time and resources fighting four indictments and several civil lawsuits, he's still managing to bring in record fundraising totals, and continues to dominate in most GOP primary polls.

Meanwhile, none of his Republican opponents have been able to find the momentum boost needed to be competitive with Trump, though many are presumably hoping for a "bump" after this week's Republican primary debate, the second one of the campaign season.

Trump is also pulling ahead in hypothetical polls for the general election against President Joe Biden, which has shaken the media establishment, to say the least.

A Washington Post poll showing Trump besting Biden by 10 points was described by WaPo as an "outlier," as they're in total denial that Trump could possibly beat the elderly, confused president.
