New Poll Finds Trump Leads DeSantis, Biden Leads Trump in 2024 Matchups

By Hamodia Staff

A recent poll conducted by Emerson College Polling found that in a hypothetical 2024 Republican Primary, 55% of Republicans would support former President Donald Trump compared to 25% for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

A similar match-up between Democratic potential candidates, President Biden would receive 42% of the votes while Vice President Kamala Harris would receive 17%, and Senator Bernie Sanders getting just 12%.

Spencer Kimball, Executive Director of Emerson College Polling noted, “There is a stark education divide among Republican primary voters. A 71% majority of voters with a high school degree or less support Trump in 2024 whereas 14% support DeSantis. A 53% majority of those with a college degree, some college, or associate’s degree support Trump while 28% support DeSantis. By contrast, Republican voters with a postgraduate degree are most split: 32% support Trump, 29% support DeSantis, and 18% support Mike Pence for the Republican nomination.”

When comparing the ages of Republicans canvassed in the poll, Kimball added, “Younger voters under 50 break for Trump over DeSantis 67% to 14%, voters between 50 and 64 break for Trump 54% to 32%, while Republicans over 65 are more split: 39% support Trump and 32% DeSantis.”

In a potential 2024 Presidential Election between President Biden and former President Donald Trump, Biden leads Trump by four points, 45% to 41%, with nine percent supporting someone else and 6% undecided.

In a matchup between Governor DeSantis and President Biden, DeSantis trails by four points, 39% to 43%; 11% would support someone else and 8% are undecided.

Forty six percent said that the economy is the most important issue facing the United States, twelve percent stated “threats to democracy”, nine percent stressed immigration, woman’s rights 7%, and healthcare and crime at 6%.

The poll was conducted November 18-19, 2022 with a margin of error (MOE) of +/- 2.5 percentage points.
