Trump ahead in South Carolina as new Arizona poll causes a stir – 2024 election polls
Former President Donald Trump is leading the early primary state of South Carolina, with the state’s former Governor Nikki Haley coming in second place even as she remains far behind Trump.
A new poll by CNN and SSRS revealed that 53 per cent of likely GOP primary voters said that Trump was their top choice, with Haley supported by 22 per cent and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis backed by 11 per cent.
South Carolina Senator Tim Scott comes in at six per cent support ahead of the 24 February primary in the Palmetto State following contests in Iowa, New Hampshire and Nevada.
This comes as Democratic Rep Ruben Gallego is the polling leader in the Arizona Senate race which also includes possible GOP nominee and former gubernatorial nominee Kari Lake and Independent incumbent Kyrsten Sinema, a former Democrat.
National Republican Senatorial Committee chair Sen Steve Daines revealed the national GOP polling during a presentation on Tuesday, according to Punchbowl News.
He noted that Ms Sinema is pulling votes from the Republicans and not from her former party.
South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham said that Ms Lake is set to win the GOP nomination.
