In contrast to the assertions of numerous Republicans that former President Donald Trump is incapable of defeating Joe Biden in 2024, the numerical evidence suggests otherwise. Although numerous Republicans have declared their candidacy, only one has surged in the polls.
Trump has dominated the field since the outset, and despite the substantial financial support for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, it is evident that Republican voters desire the return of their president.
The Democratic Party’s legal assaults on Trump serve no purpose but to increase support for the former president, according to an interview with Newsmax in which one of his future family members points this out.
DC Enquirer reports:
On Thursday, Kimberly Guilfoyle, fiance of Donald Trump Jr. and host of ‘The Kimberly Guilfoyle Show,’ joined Newsmax to discuss the ongoing presidential primary and the increasing shift amongst the Republican donor class to back Trump’s presidential run.
She explained on ‘Rob Schmitt Tonight’ that GOP donors are “coming in droves” to Team Trump as he continues to dominate the Republican field and other candidates are simply coasting off of his coattails.
As per the polling average of FiveThirtyEight, President Trump is supported by 56.9 percent of the Republican electorate. No rival even comes close.
Former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley (R-SC) is positioned second with 14.1 percent of the vote, followed by businessman Vivek Ramaswamy (R-OH) with 5.8 percent, former Vice President Mike Pence with 3.8 percent, and former Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) with 3.1 percent. Every other candidate has a polling average of less than two percent.
“All of those big donors are coming in droves to him,” Guilfoyle explained. “He has a big fundraiser tonight at Mar-a-Lago and a private donor dinner tomorrow night.”
“The cash is flowing in,” she said. “So the American people out there should follow the money because the smart money and the base is entirely behind President Trump.”
Guilfoyle further elaborated to the DC Enquirer that Trump’s presidential campaign momentum persists notwithstanding the ongoing $250 million civil case initiated by Attorney General Letitia James (D-NY), which was originally intended to divert attention away from the former president.
“But he’s undeterred, and he is really just marching towards victory.
“No one’s going to be able to catch him at this point,” Donald Trump Jr.’s fiancee continued. “And hopefully, that’s a good thing that independents and disaffected Democrats who are tired of Joe Biden and the abysmal failure of his administration want a winner. They want someone that they know can get the job done. Trump did it before; he will do it again.”
“And one thing is for certain amid the chaos and terror that’s happening in the world right now, we need a strong leader back in who knows what he’s doing, and we must secure the border immediately,” she concluded.
As per Newsmax, the campaign of Donald Trump amassed $24.5 million during the third quarter spanning July to September. Furthermore, the campaign has amassed an additional $36 million in cash, which it intends to use to finance the conclusion of the primaries and its forthcoming general election campaign against President Biden.
As President Trump continues to dominate the primary, GOP donors will recognize that the grassroots is behind him and will be compelled to contribute to his campaign if he is to have any chance of defeating Biden in November, according to the DC Enquirer.
Last month Fox News reported Trump’s gains in regard to Hispanic voters, citing a recent Univision poll, which claims to be “the largest Hispanic bipartisan primary public polling of the 2024 election cycle so far.”
According to a September survey, Trump maintains a significant lead among Hispanic Republicans, with fifty percent of respondents indicating they would support him in the GOP primary. Conversely, DeSantis secures the second position with 12%, while Vivick Ramaswamy ranks third with 9%.
The Fox report states:
“Despite four federal endictments, Trump is dominating among Hispanic voters and stands at 36%, a four point increase from when he left office in January 2021, as per a previous Univision poll.”
“Overall, the poll garnered 1,400 registered voters and 759 Republicans respondents making it one of the largest samples of Hispanic voters so far in the election cycle.”
ABC News cited a Public Opinion Strategies poll which found that voters are concerned about Biden’s age and subpar job performance, with less than four in ten expressing approval of his economic management.
In September, the aforementioned poll revealed that apprehensions regarding Trump are solely associated with the legal proceedings he is currently engaged in and opposing charges that have been initiated by Democratic attorney generals in multiple states.
The charges, which were widely acknowledged as Democratic endeavors to undermine Trump’s candidacy, have yielded merely monetary penalties and have not culminated in the former president being convicted.
Constantly campaigning and attending court appearances, Trump is on the road due to the judicial proceedings in multiple states. The date of the New York trial is November 6.
The matter of whether his Georgia trial will be broadcast on television has come to light, and President Trump is required to provide Judge Tanya Chutkin with his advisory opinion by November 10th.
