( – Support for the ex-president has risen according to a recent GOP primary survey, whereas backing for Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis seems to have decreased.

A recent poll by Quinnipiac University indicated that 62% of voters aligned with the Republican party now support the former president, a five-point increase from August’s 57%. Meanwhile, DeSantis’s backing is at 12%, marking a continued downward trend from the previous month when he stood at 18%.

In a poll earlier this year in February, DeSantis was only 6 points behind the ex-president. Now, the gap has widened to 40 points. However, despite this, DeSantis maintains his position as the second most popular choice among Republicans. Other Republican presidential candidates’ support levels have stayed roughly consistent with last month’s numbers. Conservative businessperson Vivek Ramaswamy is now at 6%, a small rise from his 5% in August.

Both former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley and former Vice President Mike Pence garnered 5% of the voter’s support, which is an improvement from their previous numbers of 3% and 4%, respectively. Meanwhile, 3% of GOP-aligned respondents expressed their support for Senator Tim Scott, and 2% would back former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.

Quinnipiac highlighted that no other mentioned contender had over 2% of the vote.

Additionally, the survey showed that 50% of Republican-leaning voters have already made a final decision on their 2024 GOP primary vote. Conversely, 48% remain open to reconsidering. Of those backing the former president, 68% are certain about their choice, while 29% might reconsider.
