Trump Surges to Biggest 2024 Lead Yet, Two Times Over DeSantis

Likely driven by MAGA support for him as he faces the threat of a hush money indictment, former President Donald Trump has jumped out to his biggest 2024 GOP primary lead in a widely followed survey.

In the latest Morning Consult survey, Trump leads Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) 54% to 26%, a 28-point advantage.

According to the analysis, “As Trump awaits potential indictment on charges related to a 2016 hush money scheme with adult-film star Stormy Daniels, he has posted one of his largest polling leads in the 2024 Republican primary. The latest survey shows 54% of potential primary voters support the former president, compared with 26% who are backing Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, tying his expected opponent’s lowest level of support since tracking began in December.”

Trump has hit social media for days claiming that a New York district attorney will arrest him for allegedly being involved in a scheme to pay porn star Stormy Daniels to keep quiet about an affair with the New York businessman before he ran for president.

Trump has denied the affair and the payment, allegedly made by his former lawyer Michael Cohen. A Cohen lawyer said this week that Trump was not aware of any payments to Daniels.

ICYMI from The New York Times

The New York Times: “A New York Times review and interviews with election law experts strongly suggest that New York state prosecutors have never before filed an election law case involving a federal campaign. Bringing an untested case against anyone, let alone a former president of the United States, carries the risk that a court could throw out or narrow the case.”
