Trump +42 Over DeSantis In New Iowa Caucus Poll

Emerson College Polling reports:

Former President Donald Trump holds 62% support in the Republican caucus, followed by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis with 20% support. Five percent support former Vice President Mike Pence and former US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley respectively, 3% support US Senator Tim Scott (SC).

Nearly three in four Iowa voters find it very (40%) or somewhat (34%) important that the Iowa caucus remains as the first one in the nation. Twenty-seven percent find it not very important (16%) or not at all important (11%).

In a hypothetical 2024 presidential matchup between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, Trump leads 49% to 38%; 10% would vote for someone else and 3% are undecided. In a matchup between Desantis and Biden, DeSantis leads 45% to 38%; 11% would support someone else and 6% are undecided.
