Republican presidential primary challengers have a long, tough road ahead of them. No matter what the leftist regime throws at front runner Donald Trump and no matter what personal attacks challengers throw at him, the former president keeps building campaign momentum.
Trump has often said polls don’t mean anything, but the latest numbers are at a level he likely enjoys. In the last few months Trump has been indicted on dozens of charges designed to knock him out of the race. This latest poll shows why – he keeps gaining in popularity while his challengers struggle, and Joe Biden’s weaponized federal agencies haven’t stopped the Trump train.
Former President Donald Trump looms large over the Republican primary field with 55 percent of support, adding nine points to his lead over Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) in two months, according to an internal Coefficient poll from his campaign.
DeSantis’ support continues to decline with the GOP primary voter poll showing him dropping from 18 percent in June to 13 percent in numbers tallied after Trump’s arraignment last week. Trump gained 4 percent from his June numbers. Most polls are showing Trump with a commanding a 40-point lead or more. No other GOP candidate is in double digits with most hovering at 5 percent or lower.
“President Trump is dominating the Republican primary field as the attacks from Joe Biden’s Justice Department continue to backfire,” a Trump campaign aide said in a statement to Daily Mail.
The poll is just another example of how people don’t believe the charges against the former president. A strong majority of people who support the president believe the charges ae nothing more than a distraction to protect any allegations against Biden and his potentially corrupt family business operations.
This poll also reveals concern for any GOP challenger to Trump. All efforts by challengers, including personal insults hurled at Trump, have fallen on deaf ears. DeSantis appears to be the leading challenger, but his campaign is almost in shambles after several attempts to “reorganize” staff and priorities. Some of the other candidates have been able to gain a few headlines here and there without much else to show for their efforts.
The GOP presidential nominee is going to be the person who can best Trump out in the open without any help from Biden’s minions. If no contender can step up to the challenge, then Trump is on his way to an all-out political war with Democrats for the White House.
