Trump’s Popularity Soars Among Women Voters
In a recent poll conducted by Beacon Research and Shaw & Company Research, former President Donald Trump has seen a significant surge in popularity among women voters. The poll, which randomly interviewed 1,007 registered voters between December 10 and December 13, reveals that Trump’s support among women stands at 41%, compared to 34% for his rival, Joe Biden.
Trump Widens Support Among GOP Voters
The polling results also indicate that Trump’s campaign is successfully targeting young voters and gaining ground among GOP voters. During a recent visit to the University of New Hampshire, Trump criticized Biden’s handling of the economy and the migrant crisis at the southern border. According to a report that interviewed Republican and Democrat college students outside the rally, many young voters agreed that Biden’s management of the economy and foreign affairs are crucial issues heading into the 2024 election.
Trump Dominates GOP Primary Race
In addition to his increasing popularity among voters, Trump is dominating the Republican presidential nomination contest. The survey found that fewer than one third of GOP primary voters now support all of Trump’s rivals combined. Trump’s support in the primary race currently stands at 69%, which is a seven-point increase since November and a remarkable 26-point increase since February.
Rivals Lag Behind Trump in Support
Among Trump’s rivals in the GOP primary race, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis receives 12% support (down 1 point since November), former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley gets 9% (-1), businessman Vivek Ramaswamy at 5% (-2), former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie at 2% (-1), and former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson with 1% (steady).
Hypothetical General Election Matchups
When pitted against potential Democratic candidates in hypothetical general election matchups, Trump remains a strong contender. Haley is ahead by six points, Trump is up by four (although neither advantage is statistically significant), and DeSantis and Biden are tied. This marks a significant shift, as Biden was previously narrowly ahead of all three candidates as recently as August.
The Fox News Poll, conducted with a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3 percentage points for all registered voters, plus or minus 4.5 points for Democrat primary voters, and 5 points for Republican primary voters, highlights Trump’s increasing popularity and dominance in the political landscape.
As Trump continues to gain momentum, it remains to be seen how his rising popularity will influence the 2024 election.
