2024 Presidential Race Stays Static In The Face Of Major Events, Quinnipiac University National Poll Finds; RFK Jr. Receives 22% As Independent Candidate In 3-Way Race
Following a month marked by a war breaking out between Israel and Hamas, global tensions ratcheting up, a mass shooting, and a former president in court for a civil fraud trial, both the 2024 presidential primary races for each party and the general election race show little change, according to a Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pea- ack) University national poll of registered voters released today.
In the Republican primary race, former President Donald Trump receives 64 percent support among Republican and Republican leaning voters, followed by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis with 15 percent support; former United Nations Ambassador and South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley with 8 percent support; and South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy with 3 percent support each. All other listed Republican candidates receive 1 percent or less support.
Among Republican and Republican leaning voters who support a candidate in the 2024 Republican presidential primary, 46 percent say they are firmly set on their choice for the Republican nomination no matter what happens leading up to the Republican primary, while 52 percent say they might change their candidate choice depending on what happens leading up to the Republican primary.
