Donald Trump is running away with the GOP primary.

A new poll found that Donald Trump has 60% support in the GOP primary.

The next highest candidate is Vivek Ramaswamy who had taken second place from DeSantis with 13%.

The Washington Examiner reported:

Political newcomer Vivek Ramaswamy continues to surge in the 2024 race at the expense of all but one challenger, former President Donald Trump, who has expanded his lead to a massive 47 points.

The Daily Signal reported Wednesday morning that Trump is backed by 60% of GOP primary voters in a new RMG Research survey. And it’s not an outlier. Trump’s average support in polls is 54.3%, and a June CBS poll had it at 61%.

While it is good news for the former president, the survey conducted by Scott Rasmussen also confirmed businessman Ramaswamy’s momentum in the race. At 13% support, it is the highest recorded and the latest to show his surge a week from the Fox-hosted Republican presidential debate.

And it was the latest to show that Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) is spiraling down. His support in the survey was an anemic 8%, 7 points off his second-place standing two weeks ago. Other candidates, including former Vice President Mike Pence and former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, continue to be stalled.
