(JTNews) – Former President Donald Trump stands well ahead of his Republican primary rivals and other would-be challengers, a recent survey revealed.
When asked to choose between Trump and “another candidate,” GOP primary voters broke 63.9% in favor over Trump with 31.0% opting for an unspecified alternative candidate, according to a Cyngal poll.
The poll also showed the former president in the black on favorability ratings, with 50.0% of respondents holding a positive view of him compared to 46.2% who had a negative view.
When pitted against President Joe Biden, Trump trails his Democratic rival by 2.3%, taking 45.0% to Biden’s 47.3%. Democrats held a narrow 0.9% lead in a generic ballot.
The survey has a margin of error of +/- 1.99%.
Cyngal’s results are good news for the former president and come amid a bevy of other polls showing him gaining momentum in the Republican primary.
To date, only Trump, former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, and tech mogul Vivek Ramaswamy remain the only Republicans to have officially declared their candidacies, though Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis is widely thought to be preparing his own campaign.
