Trump leads DeSantis by 15 points in new poll

November 24, 2022

A national Morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday showed former President Donald Trump with a 15-point lead over Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in a Republican primary presidential matchup in 2024.

The poll had a fairly small sample size of 849 registered voters, which may be less accurate than a larger survey of likely voters.

Trump led DeSantis by a margin of 45% to 30%, with all other candidates only polling in the single digits.

Trump has officially announced his candidacy, while DeSantis has implied that he is not running (although most think he will run if he thinks he can beat Trump).

An Emerson College survey on Tuesday showed Trump with a 30-point lead over DeSantis.
