According to a Morning Consult/Politico poll released this week, former President Donald Trump is seeing a small boost in support from GOP voters who will back him if he decided to make a White House run in 2024.
This is one of the first polls taken after the FBI raided his Mar-a-Lago residence.
58% of Republican voters say they’d back Trump in a hypothetical 2024 contest, up from 54% in July.
More from Morning Consult:
In the Aug. 10 survey, 58% of Republican voters said they would support Trump if the 2024 Republican presidential primary were today, the highest on record since his 2020 loss. The share of support is up from 54% in July and 53% in June amid the high-profile congressional Jan. 6 hearings.
Trump’s improvement has come to the detriment of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, whose 2024 support has slumped 5 percentage points since late July,to 16%.
Similarly, a record-high 71% of GOP voters say that Trump should run for president in 2024.
