Former President Donald Trump just dominated another poll, Breitbart reports.
The poll comes from McLaughlin & Associates. Between September 9th and 14th, the pollster asked 1,000 participants a series of questions. And, as you will see, there were some interesting findings.
Let’s start with Trump 2024
The pollster found that 71 percent of Republican Primary Voters want Trump to run for the U.S. presidency again in 2024. And, if Trump does run again, 84 percent said that they would support his nomination. Then, if Trump made it to the general election, there he would enjoy the support of 86 percent of Republican Primary Voters.
Regarding the 2024 Republican Primary, Trump, the pollster found, would easily get the nod when placed among other prominent Republicans. He would be expected to get about 59 percent of the vote.
The next closest Republican was former Vice President Mike Pence, who would get about 10 percent of it. In third is Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), who would get about 8 percent, although he moves to the top of the list when Trump is not included in the running.
On Biden and Harris
This is where things get interesting. Here’s one of the questions that the pollster asked participants:
Joe Biden was 78-years old when he was sworn in and will be 82 at the end of his term. How likely is it that Vice-President Kamala Harris will be president before the end of Joe Bidens 4-Year term?
The majority – 58 percent – answered that question affirmatively. Only 32 percent said that it is not likely.
The pollster also found that Harris would, at the moment, win the 2024 Democratic Primary if it was held today and if Biden is not included. She would be expected to get about 29 percent of the vote. In second place was “undecided” with 18 percent.
Trump v. Harris
The pollster did ask voters to weigh in on a Trump v. Harris 2024 matchup. Trump did come out on top, although not by as much as one would expect.
The pollster found that Trump would receive about 49 percent of the vote, whereas Harris would get about 47 percent of it.
What makes this result surprising is Harris’s unpopularity, which has been consistently demonstrated in polls. Let’s not forget, after all, that Harris had to drop out of the running in 2020 precisely because she was unable to muster any support. And, the polls would suggest that, if anything, more people have soured on Harris since then.
Trump’s popularity, on the other hand, is anything but surprising as he has dominated poll after poll for months now.
