Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) still has not experienced a significant bump following his presidential announcement, while former President Donald Trump continues to dominate the 2024 Republican primary field, the latest Morning Consult survey found.
The latest weekly survey, released Tuesday, showed Trump continuing to garner 56 percent support in the potential GOP primary field. He continues to remain up by 34 points against his closest challenger, DeSantis, who garnered 22 percent support.
Notably, these figures remain unchanged from the results last week. And while it remains true that Trump’s lead is smaller than the 43-point lead he boasted in mid-May, Morning Consult’s Eli Yokley noted last week that “much of that dip came before DeSantis officially began his bid.” This week, Morning Consult noted that “DeSantis’ support is stagnant after launch.”
Former Vice President Mike Pence, who is expected to enter the race this week, experienced a two-point jump, going from five percent to seven percent over the last week.
