Former President Donald Trump boasts a 31-point lead over his nearest competitor, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), in the growing Republican primary field, according to a Quinnipiac University poll.
A majority of 56 percent of registered voters who are Republicans or lean Republican back Trump for the GOP presidential nomination, the poll shows. Trump has netted nine percent of support since Quinnipiac’s March poll.
DeSantis, who announced his candidacy on Wednesday during a conversation with Twitter CEO Elon Musk, has the support of one in four poll participants. He has slid eight points from two months ago, when his support registered at 33 percent. The change since March marks a 17-point swing toward Trump and away from DeSantis.
“The first one out of the gate, in what for now still looks like a two-horse race, is moving at full gallop away from a slowly growing pack of contenders,” said Tim Malloy, a polling analyst at Quinnipiac University.
