New Poll Shock: Vivek Stumbles to Lead in Ohio, Trump Still King!

Former President Donald Trump continues to hold a commanding lead in the race for the Republican nomination in 2024, but there are signs of shifting dynamics among his rivals. The latest poll out of Ohio shows businessman Vivek Ramaswamy surpassing Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to claim second place in the Buckeye State. This is a significant development considering Governor DeSantis’ recent missteps.

Among likely GOP primary voters in Ohio, Ramaswamy has secured 11.8 percent support, while DeSantis trails at 8.7 percent. Trump, however, remains the clear frontrunner with an overwhelming 64.1 percent. The other GOP candidates are polling at 6 percent or lower, according to the Post Millennial.

In a head-to-head matchup with President Biden, Trump would secure Ohio with a margin of 49.1 percent to 39 percent. Historically, Ohio has been a swing state that typically votes for the eventual winner of the presidential election. However, recent cycles have defied this trend. Although Trump won Ohio with 53 percent of the vote in 2020, Biden was ultimately declared the winner of the election.

Trump’s consistent lead over Biden in the polls mirrors national surveys that give him a seven-point advantage over the incumbent. While the general election is still 16 months away and much can change, Trump remains firmly in control.

On the other hand, Governor DeSantis has recently faced setbacks, including laying off a third of his campaign staff and cutting the campaign’s advertising budget. The Florida governor’s campaign is attempting to regroup after spending over a third of its funds raised and hiring more staffers than any other campaign. DeSantis has shown a combative attitude towards reporters who questioned his campaign’s readiness for the national stage.

Meanwhile, Ramaswamy has captured the attention of Republican voters as a dark horse candidate who fearlessly confronts liberal opponents. He has demonstrated a willingness to engage with anyone and has not shied away from tough encounters. Both he and DeSantis have met the qualifying criteria to participate in the Republican Party’s first debate, set to take place next month in Milwaukee.

While Trump’s dominance and the current rankings are certainly noteworthy, it’s important to remember that the political landscape can change quickly. With 16 months until the general election, there is still ample time for surprises and shifts in support.
