TRUMP HITS NEW HIGHS: The FBI Raid Boosts Don’s Primary Support, More Backers Than Ever

The FBI’s raid on Mar-a-Lago may be a net positive for former President Donald Trump should he decide to run for the White House in 2024; he’s polling better than ever.

According to a new Morning Consult/Politico survey, 58% of Republican voters said they’d back Trump in a hypothetical 2024 contest, up from 54% in July. This is one of the first polls taken after the FBI raid.

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.
