A new McLaughlin & Associates survey found Donald Trump Jr had the most support for President among all other Republican candidates. (This is without his father Donald Trump running)
It’s starting to look like a Trump will be on top of the 2024 presidential ticket even if former President Donald Trump doesn’t challenge President Biden.
That’s because Donald Trump Jr. has surged to the head of the GOP pack in a new survey of challengers in a race that is minus his father.
Among GOP primary voters, Don Jr. has gone from sitting 10 points behind former Vice President Mike Pence in November to 6 points ahead, 21%-15%, in the McLaughlin & Associates survey.
Few things to look at here.
The first is that support for Donald Trump Jr has not changed much. He has stayed at 20% for some time. This poll has him at 21%.
The second thing is how Pence has fallen. Pence dropped from 30% back on November 20th to 15% in February. This is why Donald Trump Jr. is now in first.
The third thing to look at is the jump for Ron DeSantis. DeSantis jumped from 2 in previous polls to 9 in the most recent one. That is the biggest jump out of all the other candidates.
The final thing is the number of undecideds. 17% are undecided on who they will support. If one of the top candidates picked this block up then they would be the favorite to win the primary. If one of the bottom candidates picked it up it would propel them into the conversation to win the whole thing.
Why does this matter?
If Trump decided not to run the primary would be wide-open. It would honestly likely come down to who Trump endorsed.
It is clear that at this time this is a 4-way-race if Trump does not run.
-Donald Trump Jr. is number one in McLaughlin & Associates survey with 21% saying they would vote for him
-Mike Pence has fallen from 30% in November to 15% in March
