RINOs’ attempts to stop Donald Trump are failing.
Donald Trump is dominating the GOP primary.
His support level just hit the highest ever according to the RCP aggregate.
Former President Donald Trump eclipsed an all-time high level of national support in the 2024 Republican primary, resting at 59.1% in the RealClearPolitics aggregate.
The polling average, which has tracked an average of GOP primary polls since mid-to-late 2022, has never found Trump’s support as high as it is in late-October 2023.
The all-time high comes after several indictments in multiple jurisdictions, such as investigations relating to classified documents, the 2020 election and business fraud.
According to the polling average, Trump’s closest rival in the primary is Gov. Ron DeSantis, who has a national support level of 12.6% average as of Thursday.
Donald Trump just got more great news.
Some GOP donors who were looking for an alternative to Trump are now coming back to him.
Some major Republican donors who have spent much of 2023 looking for a Donald Trump alternative are increasingly open to one 2024 candidate: Donald Trump.
“There is no doubt in my mind that Donald Trump will be the nominee of our party,” said Ed Broyhill, a longtime GOP donor who was Trump’s North Carolina finance chairman in 2020. “The grassroots are a solid foundation for Donald Trump.”
Earlier this year, Broyhill was considering supporting other candidates, like Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis or former Vice President Mike Pence. But he is now firmly a Trump supporter.
Broyhill is part of a notable slice of donors who helped fund Trump’s first two presidential campaigns but were, for various reasons, at least considering alternatives in the 2024 primaries. However, members of the group have started to once again write checks for Trump in recent months.
