A new poll indicates that President Donald Trump (R) dominates in support among Republican voters. Conducted by the New York Times/Siena College, Republican primary voters see Trump as the strongest choice.

To no surprise, President Trump continues to be the frontrunner in polling as has been the case since he first announced his candidacy. Trump has maintained a strong lead from the beginning of the race, and now he’s even insinuated that he might not be attending the first Republican primary debate that’s scheduled for August 25th.

“Let them debate so I can see who I MIGHT consider for Vice President!” Trump said on social media, fueling rumors that he’ll be sitting out the debate.

Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) remain as the frontrunners, but the margin between the two is big.

60% of voters said they feel Trump is a strong leader compared to DeSantis. Similarly, 67% feel that Trump “gets things done” compared to 22% who believe the same about DeSantis. As far as beating President Joe Biden (D) is concerned, 58% believe that Trump can do the job while 28% believe that DeSantis can best the president. However, DeSantis scores higher when it comes to likeability and being viewed as moral.

43% of those polled said that Trump was likeable compared to 45% for DeSantis, and when viewed as moral people, DeSantis outscored Trump with 45% to 37%.

Overall, Trump outscored the Republican candidates with 54% of support to DeSantis’ 17%.

Miami Mayor Francis Suarez (R), eager to make a name for himself in the primary race, received below 1% of support.

In a newly released ad, Mayor Suarez affirms that he’s the right person for the job, saying that under President Biden, the country continues “to fumble around.”

“We continue to get weaker. We continue to project weakness on a global level, and we fail to project strength, and we fail to project competency,” Suarez told a crowd of Republican voters.

“This is the greatest country on the planet, and we should never apologize for it,” he said.
