A recent poll indicates that Donald Trump’s electability remains strong, as he takes a 5 percent lead over President Joe Biden among registered voters, based on data from Premise Data.
The data shows Trump ahead of Biden at 43-38, while in a hypothetical contest, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis stands 3 points behind Biden at 37-34.
These numbers aren’t favorable for the Biden administration. Notably, 67 percent of those polled think the nation is not heading in the right direction under the Biden presidency. Moreover, 51 percent of respondents rated Biden’s management of the economy as poor. This poll is significant, especially since the economy ranks as the top concern for the upcoming 2024 elections, as per Premise Data, with 26 percent of respondents highlighting it.
In terms of securing the Republican nomination, Trump has a commanding presence, with 60 percent of polled registered voters supporting his nomination for 2024. DeSantis follows with 16 percent entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy with 6 percent, former Vice President Mike Pence at 4 percent, former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, and Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.) with 3 percent each.
It’s worth noting that Trump will not be participating in the upcoming GOP presidential debate. Instead, he has chosen to give an exclusive interview to former Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson. Furthermore, Trump has scheduled a visit to Atlanta, Georgia, the day following the debate.
In addition, Trump’s polling numbers are robust in initial nominating states. For instance, in Iowa, Trump leads by a significant 23 percent.
The mugshot release of former President Donald Trump seems to have boosted his 2024 campaign’s fundraising efforts significantly.
According to a spokesperson for Trump’s campaign, the former president managed to raise an impressive $7.1 million following the release of his mug shot. This fantastic fundraising occurred after charging 13 felony counts related to an alleged plan to reverse the Georgia presidential election results.
Highlighting the surge in donations, the campaign amassed $4.18 million on Saturday alone, marking the single highest fundraising day since the campaign’s inception.
Capitalizing on the mugshot momentum, the campaign swiftly launched merchandise showcasing the mug shot via its joint fundraising committee. This merchandise was available two hours after Trump’s release from custody. Moreover, Trump took to X, previously known as Twitter, to share the booking photo accompanied by a donation link. This Twitter post was his inaugural post on the platform in over two years.
