Former President Donald Trump’s lead over his nearest competitor in the Republican primary field, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), has expanded four percent since August and now sits at nearly fifty points, according to a national TIPP insights poll.
The poll, published on Monday, shows that Trump has hit the 60 percent threshold for the first time in a TIPP Insights survey in 2023. His support has grown three points from August among registered Republicans and right-leaning independents, while DeSantis has fallen off one point since then and lands at eleven percent in the latest poll.
Nine percent of respondents back entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, putting him in third place, followed by former Vice President Mike Pence with six percent. Both candidates have climbed one percent compared to August.
