Former President Donald Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) dominate in hypothetical 2024 scenarios, an Emerson College survey released this week found.
An overwhelming majority of Republican voters, 67 percent, said they would vote for Trump in a hypothetical 2024 GOP primary. Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) is the only other candidate who saw double-digit support, garnering ten percent. Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley came in third with seven percent support, followed by former Vice President Mike Pence (6 percent).
However, when Trump is taken out of the scenario, DeSantis takes the lead, garnering 32 percent support. Pence came in second with 24 percent, followed by Sen. Ted Cruz (13 percent) and Haley (10 percent). Both Sens. Mitt Romney (R-UT) and Josh Hawley (R-MO) garnered six percent support each in a Trumpless field.
