Trump surges to 40-point lead over DeSantis, Vivek in third: poll | Just The News

Former President Donald Trump has amassed a considerable lead over his Republican rivals, surging ahead of nearest rival Ron DeSantis by 40-points, a recent survey has revealed.

In the latest Harvard/Harris survey, Trump claimed the support of 52% of the Republican electorate, a 7-point decline from the last poll, though Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis still trailed with 12%.

The most significant movement came from tech mogul Vivek Ramaswamy, who surged 8 points to secure 10% support overall, closing in on the second-place slot. Ramaswamy also appears to be gaining traction as a second choice for Trump supporters.
