GOP Primary Poll: Donald Trump Boasts 26-Point Lead in Iowa
Former President Donald Trump is boasting a 26-point lead in the Iowa Republican caucus, a Trafalgar Group survey released Monday found.
The survey asked 1,084 likely GOP presidential caucus voters who they would support in the caucus if it were held tomorrow.
As has been consistent in survey after survey, Trump stands as the clear frontrunner, leading the pack of GOP hopefuls with 43.8 percent support. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis falls to a distant second, roughly 26 points behind with 17.5 percent support. Further, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley virtually ties DeSantis for second place, garnering 15.1 percent support — a 2.4 percent difference, which comes within the survey’s ± 2.9 percent margin of error.
South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott comes in fourth place with 8.6 percent support, followed by anti-woke businessman Vivek Ramaswamy and former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who both garner 4.5 percent support each. North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum sees 4.1 percent support, and former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson sees 0.3 percent support.
Poll: 73% Say Joe Biden’s America Is ‘Going Badly,’ Spiking 8 Points in 10 Months
Americans view the direction of President Joe Biden’s America with increasing pessimism, according to Sunday polling by CBS News/YouGov.
The survey shows a downward trend as Biden seeks to win reelection in 2024 as he is threatened with scandal, a sluggish economy, and foreign policy blunders.
Seventy-three percent say Joe Biden’s America is going badly, an increase of eight points in just ten months:
January: 65 percent
February: 68 percent
April: 70 percent
July: 71 percent
September: 69 percent
October: 73 percent
The poll also found Americans believe Joe Biden’s policies are benefitting wealthy Americans, not working Americans:
Eighty percent of Americans believe the wealthy are favored over the middle and working-class in Biden’s America. Only 14 percent say the middle and working classes are treated the same as the rich under Biden’s leadership.
If Joe Biden wins reelection, 39 percent say his policies would give preferential treatment to “Racial minorities over White people.” Just 43 percent believe Biden’s policies would treat both groups equally.
In addition, the poll found that Americans believe Joe Biden’s economy will continue to worsen:
Just 18 percent say Biden’s potential second term would financially benefit them, while 48 percent of Americans believe their financial position would worsen. Thirty-four percent say it would remain the same.
In contrast, 45 percent of Americans say they would be financially better off if former President Donald Trump wins the 2024 election, 27 points greater than Biden. Only 32 percent believe they would be worse off, 16 points less than Biden.
The poll sampled 2,636 U.S. adult residents from October 30 to November 3, 2023, with a ± 2.6 percent margin of error.
