(POLL) Trump still leading after first GOP primary debate

Former President Donald Trump’s decision to skip the first televised debate among Republican candidates does not appear to have shaken his strong support among GOP voters.

That’s according to the latest Rasmussen Reports.

The survey found that 45% of likely Republican primary voters would vote for Trump if the primary were held today, while Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie would each get nine percent (9%) of the vote.

Former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley gets seven percent (7%), followed by former Vice President Mike Pence (4%), South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott (4%), and conservative radio host Larry Elder (1%).

A number of other Republican 2024 hopefuls – including former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum, former Texas Rep. Will Hurd, Miami Mayor Francis Suarez, Texas businessman Ryan Binkley and Michigan businessman Perry Johnson – registered less than one percent (1%) support in the poll.

Eleven percent (11%) of GOP primary voters are undecided.

    1. This can’t be correct. Must be a typo—Vivek MUST have 9% and Christie with the other 1-3%. There’s no way Christie is at 9. I know—I’m from Jersey and we hated him ALMOST as much as Murphy.

  1. Christie at 9% would indicate that there were Democrats claiming to be Republicans in that poll. Not even RINOs would support Christie!
    Where is Ramaswamy in the poll?
    While I did not watch the debate, I heard that ND Gov Burgum performed well and even showed a decent personality with his humorous intro regarding his sprained foot.
