Poll: Donald Trump Dominates GOP Primary Field in Tennessee with 49-Point Lead

Former President Donald J. Trump holds a nearly 50-point lead over Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) in the Republican primary in Tennessee and comfortably leads President Joe Biden in a hypothetical general election match-up, according to a poll.

The Beacon/Targoz poll released Thursday shows Trump running away from the rest of the field at 61 percent of support among likely primary voters. DeSantis, his closest competitor, has just 12 percent support, while former Vice President Mike Pence sits within striking distance of DeSantis with eight percent.
