The latest Morning Consult poll has confirmed what many of us already knew – Donald Trump is the Republican frontrunner for the 2024 presidential race.
With a commanding lead over Governor Ron DeSantis, Trump’s popularity among Republican primary voters remains strong.

Although there may be some concerns over Trump’s electability, the poll shows that he has a two-point lead over DeSantis in a hypothetical head-to-head match-up against President Biden.
This demonstrates that Trump still has a significant appeal among the wider electorate. However, we must also consider the potential impact of a Trump presidency on the Republican party.
With Trump’s baggage and controversial track record, many wonder whether the GOP should focus on expanding its base or maintaining Trump’s existing coalition.
This is a question that must be carefully considered in the lead-up to the 2024 race. Regardless of these concerns, one thing is clear – Trump’s dominance in the polls suggests that his influence in American politics is far from over.
As conservative voters, we must remain vigilant and work to ensure that our values and principles are represented in the political sphere.
