Former President Donald Trump holds a 41-point lead in a hypothetical Republican primary, with 58% support. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis holds 17%, followed by Governor Sununu at 7%, former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley at 6%, and former Vice President Mike Pence at 4%.
Among announced candidates Trump, Haley, and Vivek Ramaswamy, Trump’s support increases to 73%, followed by Haley with 20%, and Ramaswamy with 7%.
Kimball noted, “Similar to our February national poll, Trump finds his primary base among young voters: 67% of Republican primary voters under 35 support Trump as the nominee. Unlike the national survey, where DeSantis found a base of voters over 65 and those with higher educational attainment, DeSantis holds no such base at this time among New Hampshire Republicans. Similarly, Governor Sununu is unable to surpass 10% among any demographic groups.”

President Trump was in Davenport, Iowa Today to Deliver Remarks on His America First Education Agenda.
The visit to Iowa comes amid surging poll numbers for President Trump.Morning Consult found that President Trump has his “strongest primary lead yet” in a national poll released Tuesday showing Trump with a 25 percent lead. Meanwhile, Emerson College found that President Trump has a 41 percent lead in a hypothetical New Hampshire Republican primary.Americans are desperate for leadership. Just look at East Palestine, Ohio. Nick Sortor posted a picture on Twitter of a “WE NEED TRUMP” sign on someone’s front lawn.“THIS is the sentiment here in East Palestine given Joe Biden is totally ignoring the town—even after promising he’d come visit residents,” Sortor wrote. President Trump will never ignore Americans.
Biden sleeps at the wheel while Americans face an increasingly uncertain economic future:
- The collapse of Silicon Valley Bank last week was the largest bank run in modern history. It’s the largest bank failure since 2008 when customers at Washington Mutual withdrew $16.7 billion over ten days. Last week’s run on SVB, however, totaled $42 billion in a single day.
- As inflation continues to outpace wage growth, the total amount of credit card debt held by Americans is nearing a historic high, up 18.5% from the previous year to a record $930.6 billion in 2022.
- More than ever, the United States needs a firm hand on the wheel of our economy. Joe Biden spent last week instead touting his disastrous, job-killing, growth-shrinking budget.
- Biden’s proposed budget would increase taxes by $5.5 trillion and end domestic oil and gas production incentives. Meanwhile, Biden proposed that the EPA receive $2 billion for “advancing racial equity and securing environmental justice.”
- Economist Stephen Moore described Biden’s budget as a “fiscal atrocity” that would be an economic “killer.” A report from the nonpartisan Tax Foundation found that Biden’s proposed corporate tax rate hike specifically would strangle our economy and slash nearly 140,000 jobs.
- The four Americans kidnapped in Mexico last week are not an outlier. There are currently more than 550 Americans missing in Mexico.
- The Mexican drug cartels have made Mexico unsafe for Americans to visit. When the cartels are not busy terrorizing their own country, they are producing and smuggling deadly drugs into the U.S. that destroy communities.
- The cartels must be defeated. President Trump has a plan to “wage war” on the cartels and use every means possible to dismantle them.
- The Democrats, unfortunately, cannot be trusted to handle this threat. Democrat Senator Bob Menendez said he wouldn’t vote to designate Mexican drug cartels as terrorist organization claiming, “We should save that for truly terrorist organizations in the world.”
ICYMI: “‘On Second Thought, I Guess Trump Was Right and I Was Wrong’ on Metering”
The first in a series noting instances in which the Biden administration has adopted Trump administration policies and practices that President Biden previously pilloried
Presidential candidate Joe Biden’s “Plan for Securing Our Values as a Nation of Immigrants” proclaimed that:
Trump’s disastrous policy of “metering” — limiting the number of asylum applications accepted each day [at ports-of-entry (POEs)] — forces people seeking asylum to wait on the streets in often dangerous Mexican border towns for weeks before they are permitted to apply. It has created a horrifying ecosystem of violence and exploitation, with cartels kidnapping, violently assaulting, and extorting migrants. Biden will direct the necessary resources to ensure asylum applications are processed fairly and efficiently, while treating families and children with compassion and sensitivity.
