A recent poll was taken to gauge the popularity of presidential candidates for the 2024’s race. One thousand likely U.S. voters were asked to weigh in on their top pick for president. The poll was conducted between December 9-14 and was vastly different from other recently released presidential polls. The McLaughlin poll showed a much higher approval for President Trump, showing he holds a significant lead and distinct advantage going into the campaign season for 2024.
Using their tiresome bias against Trump, media polls constantly try to downplay his popularity with Americans. Both the 2016 and 2020 races are evidence of this.
Polls like the one below are pushing an unresearched narrative, propeling the idea that Ron DeSantis leads Trump by 6% in poll data.

What makes the McLaughlin Poll more reliable is that it asked rigorous questions to find voters who intend to vote in the primaries and the general election. This demographic was used to obtain poll numbers and rocketed Trump to the front of the pack. President Trump’s level of support will be diluted in a poll that just focuses on adults rather than likely voters because he has a motivated base of supporters who are more likely to vote in primaries and elections.
There were 258 million eligible voters in the U.S. in 2016, 139 million voted, leaving a gap of well over 100 million people who could participate in a poll with no intention of voting.
Donald Trump’s polling numbers came in the same as they did on McLaughlin’s 2022 exit polls, with 77% of likely primary voters saying they would support him again. And while the D.C. establishment is opposed to a Trump nomination, he is still the favorite of the people.
Out of 14 candidates for the GOP nomination, Trump leads with 48%. Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., is second at 23%; behind DeSantis is former Vice President Mike Pence at 5%, Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., at 4%, former governor of South Carolina and U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley at 3%, Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah 2%, and all others at 1%.
In a head-to-head match-up between DeSantis and Trump in the primary among likely voters, Trump leads DeSantis 58% to 36%.
Big tech, big media, and the D.C. establishment have worked hard to ruin President Trump, but his dedication to preserving freedom and fighting for the American people makes him the natural choice of the people.
