Former President Donald Trump has revealed he is running for the White House in 2024. His November 15 announcement put an end to nearly two years of speculation. Although no other Republican has announced quite yet, there’s a lot of speculation Florida Governor Ron DeSantis might throw his hat into the ring. A recent poll, however, shows Trump is still powerful in the party and comfortably the favorite.
The November Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll shows Trump leading in a hypothetical 2024 GOP primary race. Pollsters asked potential voters who they would vote for if the Republican primary were held today. It showed the former POTUS leading with 46%. The second most popular candidate was DeSantis, with 28% — 18 points less. The former vice president came in third with 7%, and Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) received 3%.
