The latest Ipsos Poll has President Donald Trump way on top of the field of potential GOP 2024 presidential candidates.

Donald Trump remains the leading Republican candidate for 2024 by a wide margin, topping his leading challenger Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis by a huge 43 percentage points in the latest Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Friday, Dec. 31.

A majority of Republicans chose Trump (54%) when asked who they would support in the 2024 presidential GOP primary. Here are how the top 10 GOP contenders broke down:

  1. Trump 54%.
  2. DeSantis 11%.
  3. Former Vice President Mike Pence 8%.
  4. Former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley 4%.
  5. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, 3%.
  6. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., 2%.
  7. Texas GOP Gov. Greg Abbott 2%.
  8. Former New Jersey GOP Gov. Chris Christie 2%.
  9. Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo 1%.
  10. Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., 1%.

There were still 14% who were unsure on whom they would support. The poll did not ask about Democrat 2024 primary candidates, but the numbers did show some problems for President Joe Biden’s re-election hopes, Ipsos noted.

56% – a large majority of Americans – believe the national economy and country are generally headed in the wrong direction, according to the poll. Notably, that even includes 63% of independents.

Also, nearly three-quarters of American adults (73%) consider inflation a very big concern.

Finally, President Biden gets less than half approving of the job he has done in office, a dismal 48%.

President Biden hasn’t said whether he will run for re-election in 2024 – a rematch of the 2020 contest. But his floundering in the polls should give him and fellow Dems some pause. 

While both have ​high familiarity ratings, Biden has a slight edge over Trump – 99 percent to 98 percent.

The Ipsos poll was conducted Dec. 13-17 among 4,407 adults, including 2,048 Democrats, 1,592 Republicans, and 517 Independents.
