Trump +15 Over DeSantis In New GOP Primary Poll

Morning Consult reports:

Former President Donald Trump’s 2024 campaign announcement appears to have been a dud, according to a new Morning Consult/Politico survey, which found his support against a hypothetical 2024 Republican field weakened a bit over the course of a week.

According to the Nov. 18-20 survey, 45% of potential Republican primary voters said they would vote for Trump if the 2024 presidential nominating contest were being held today, compared with 47% who said the same the weekend before his announcement.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis remains in second place, with support from 3 in 10 Republicans and GOP-leaning independents, while former Vice President Mike Pence is backed by 7% of the GOP electorate. Neither politician has launched a campaign.
