Poll for Trump shows former president still leads Republicans with 51 percent of the vote
Poll for Trump Super PAC shows former president still leads Republicans with 51 percent of the vote after historic impeachment — 47 percent of respondents said he will not get a fair trial in Manhattan
- A poll by Trump’s campaign team claims he has 51 percent of the Republican vote
- Poll puts former president ahead of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, ex-Vice President Mike Pence and Nikki Haley
- About 47 percent of respondents said he would not get a fair trial in Manhattan
Donald Trump’s allies remain optimistic his impeachment has boosted his popularity as their research shows he’s winning the Republican leadership race.
A poll by Trump’s campaign team showed that 51 percent of Republicans see him as their preferred candidate for 2024 – and thus set him before his biggest threat, Ron DeSantis, who scored 21 percent.
A separate poll by YouGov and Yahoo News also found that 57 percent of Republicans would vote for Trump, while just 31 percent would support DeSantis.
It comes after Trump’s team yesterday claimed more than $4 million was donated to his presidential campaign in the 24 hours after he was impeached.
The former president faces 34 charges in connection with an alleged $130,000 hush money payment made to porn star Stormy Daniels in 2016.

A Trump team poll claims he has 51 percent of the Republican vote
Trump’s team conducted a comprehensive poll test of 14 potential Republican candidates on Friday and Saturday — two days after his indictment.
While Trump and DeSantis came out on top in the most recent poll, ex-Vice President Mike Pence was third with six percent of the vote.
Nikki Haley finished fourth with four percent, while all other candidates each received two percent or less.
A general election test also put Trump ahead of Biden 47-43 — a number that has changed little since his team’s last poll in March.
Meanwhile, 47 percent of respondents said he would not get a fair trial in Manhattan.
Trump has repeatedly expressed concerns about being tried in the democratic state.
Yesterday, the 76-year-old politician said his indictment netted him $4 million for his presidential campaign.
A quarter of the money came from new donors, and payments could be traced to all 50 states, according to a donation email sent by Trump Friday night.
In the message, Trump wrote, “This is the fight I willingly signed up for when I decided 8 years ago to go up against the entire Washington machine as a political maverick and be YOUR voice.”
There’s no way to confirm the numbers until the campaign files its first quarterly report by April 15.
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has been accused of conducting a political “witch hunt” against Trump
Trump’s biggest rival in leadership, DeSantis, was forced to walk a political tightrope as he debated the impeachment
Trump was sensationally charged Thursday after a year-long investigation into the money paid to Daniels.
He is due to be arrested on Tuesday and faces up to four years in prison if convicted.
It was a victory for Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who re-heated the investigation and doggedly pursued the case.
But Trump and his family members have repeatedly accused Bragg of a politically charged “witch hunt” that will only make voters more sympathetic to the former president.
On Saturday, Trump’s biggest leadership rival, DeSantis, was forced to walk a political tightrope as he debated the impeachment.
The Florida governor – who has yet to formally announce his bid for leadership – accused the Manhattan district attorney of arming the law against Trump.
However, he avoided using the former president’s name in an hour-long campaign speech on Saturday.
It showed how likely candidates for the 2024 Republican nomination were in the awkward position of being forced to drop behind the front-runner.
