Trump now 49 points ahead of DeSantis

October 29, 2023

Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis had hoped to build momentum and overtake former President Donald Trump amid his multiple indictments and other legal troubles.

But strangely, Trump's challenges have only made his base of support stronger as Republicans have become increasingly indignant about his treatment by Democrat prosecutors and Biden's DOJ.

In the latest Morning Consult poll, 62% of Republicans said they supported Trump -- his highest-ever prior measure of support was 63%. Only 13% supported DeSantis, who is still the second-place candidate.

Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley took 7%, and the percentages for other hopefuls go down from there.

Candidates are beginning to exit the race due to a lack of fundraising success and low poll numbers.

Former Vice President Mike Pence and talk show host Larry Elder have dropped out, with more to follow soon, if previous primaries are any indication.
