Murdoch Fox News Poll – Trump Continues Massive Dominance, DeSantis Loses Ground Again
Despite the best efforts of Fox News and Rupert Murdoch, their own pollster Daron Shaw duplicates an identical polling outcome from the most recent three. [Poll Data Here] President Trump is growing his support base, and Ron DeSantis is losing even more ground.
It’s important to keep in mind that Fox News has been desperately trying to prop up the campaign of Ron DeSantis, giving him soft interviews and pushing his infomercials every week. Yet even Rupert Murdoch is now having to admit DeSantis just doesn’t have the support of the base Republican voters.
FOX NEWS – Three weeks after the first Republican presidential primary debate, the latest Fox News survey finds Donald Trump has increased both his lead in the race and his strength of support.
Sixty percent of Republican primary voters back Trump in the primary race, up from 53% in the Fox News pre-debate August survey. […] At 13% support, Ron DeSantis sees a downtick of 3 points since the debate, while Vivek Ramaswamy holds steady at 11%. Next is Nikki Haley with 5%, Mike Pence and Tim Scott at 3% each, and Chris Christie at 2%. All remaining candidates receive 1% or less. (more)
BIG SMILE – The RNC is in a very weak position ahead of the September 27th Fox Business News debate at the Reagan Library. President Trump has already said he will not be in attendance, and the remaining candidates look silly as they prepare for a debate with zero relevance to the voters.
The GOPe was looking to use the Reagan Library debate as a great opportunity to undermine President Trump and position him as the radical candidate. However, the debate itself is increasingly irrelevant. As this dynamic unfolds, the RNC is weakened in an almost delicious way.
As noted by Politico:
The RNC required candidates only to hit 1 percent nationally to make the stage for the first debate. For the second debate candidates need to either hit 3 percent in two national polls or in a combination of one national poll and polls from two early states.
The lack of clarity around upcoming debates is a sign that the RNC is walking a delicate line as it tries to maintain neutrality in a primary field that is decidedly lopsided. Former President Donald Trump has a wide lead over the rest of the field, but he did not attend the first debate and has no plans to attend the second. The RNC is likely hoping to lure him in with a setting he might find more appealing for the third — or the organization and its events look increasingly irrelevant. (read more)
Nothing is better to see than the RNC becoming irrelevant.
