Former President Donald Trump would beat Florida Governor Ron DeSantis by a wide margin in a hypothetical 2024 Republican presidential primary, according to a new poll.

Trump received 55% support from registered Republican voters, while DeSantis, his potential rival for the White House nomination, received just 25%, according to the Emerson College poll.

This survey was carried out last week, in the wake of Trump’s announcement that he would run for the White House in 2024.

On the Democratic side, President Joe Biden’s approval rating was just 39%, while 53% disapprove of the job he is doing, according to the Emerson poll.

That’s statistically the same result as the approval ratings seen for Biden in Emerson’s previous national poll taken shortly before November’s midterm elections.

And in a potential 2020 election rematch in 2024, Biden would beat Trump by a 45% to 41% margin, according to the survey.

If DeSantis were the 2024 GOP nominee, he would lose to Biden by the same margin, according to the poll, which found the Democratic incumbent would get 43% of the vote, compared to 39% for the governor.

Asked about their preference for their party’s 2024 nominee, Democrats who responded to the poll overwhelmingly chose Biden over Vice President Kamala Harris. A total of 42% of Democrats wanted Biden to be the nominee, compared to just 17% for Harris and 12% for Sen. Bernie Sanders, an independent from Vermont.

The Emerson Poll found that there is a noticeable educational divide among Republican primary voters, according to Spencer Kimball, executive director of Emerson College Polling.

Voters with a high school diploma or less support Trump at 71%. Voters with a college degree, some college or associate degree support him at 53%.

Republican voters with postgraduate degrees support Trump the least, at 32%.

The poll found that the economy is the most important issue facing Democratic and Republican voters, followed respectively by “threats to democracy”, immigration, abortion, health care and poverty. crime.

Additionally, 52% of voters believe Congress should continue to investigate the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol riot by a mob of Trump supporters that disrupted Biden’s certification of Electoral College victory.

Another 39% think Congress should drop the investigation.

The survey was conducted between November 18 and 19 with a sample of 1,380 registered voters and a margin of error of 2.5 percentage points.
