Trump Smiling Ear-To-Ear After Campaign Gets Best News of Primary Season

Former President Donald Trump was given another reason to smile after a new survey released on Tuesday ahead of the GOP primaries put him in an even better position to win.

According to the Emerson College poll, Trump holds a 47-point lead — his biggest yet — over his nearest rival, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, Newsmax reported.

The survey found that Trump received 59 percent support, up 9 points from August.

“The Trump voter remains resilient, and despite a dip in August’s post-debate poll, Trump has now expanded his lead and has improved his position from before the first debate,” Spencer Kimball, executive director of Emerson College Polling, said, as cited by Newsmax.

DeSantis, meanwhile, received 12 percent support, the only other GOP candidate to poll in double digits.

Newsmax added:


Trump and DeSantis were followed by businessman Vivek Ramaswamy (7%), former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (5%), former Vice President Mike Pence (5%), former U.N. Ambassador and South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (3%) and Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., (2%). Five percent were undecided.

Overall, 63% of Republican primary voters say they definitely will support their chosen candidate, while 36% say there’s a chance they could change
