(TheConservativeTimes.org) – In a survey conducted after last Wednesday’s GOP primary debate, Donald Trump remains at the top of the Republican primary field, the New York Post reported.
According to a poll conducted by Leger for the New York Post, Trump is in the lead with 62 percent followed by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis with 10 percent.
The methodology of the Leger poll is not provided. However, given the swift turnaround, it is likely the survey was conducted online rather than by phone. Online polling is notoriously unreliable.
The survey also found that 37 percent of Democrat respondents think that Trump will be the one to face Joe Biden in the 2024 election.
In a hypothetical rematch between Biden and Trump, 43 percent of respondents think Trump will defeat Biden while 32 percent think Biden will come out on top. Another 26 percent were unsure.
When asked if they think Trump can beat Biden if he is convicted in one of his many trials, only 36 percent said Trump could still win.
Only 28 percent of those surveyed tuned in to last week’s debate. Among Republican respondents, only 36 percent watched the debate.
While Donald Trump enjoys a 43.1-point lead in national polling, according to the Real Clear Politics polling average, support for the former president in state polling appears to be soft.
A CBS News/YouGov poll released last week found that only 20 percent of Iowa Republicans and 23 percent of New Hampshire Republicans consider themselves Only Trump.
Another 48 percent of Republicans in Iowa and 43 percent in New Hampshire are considering other candidates in addition to Trump.
Meanwhile, the Not Trump contingent in both early primary contests is higher than the Only Trump contingent, with 31 percent of Iowa Republicans and 34 percent of New Hampshire Republicans saying they will not consider voting for Trump.
