After a recent Clarity Omnibus Survey revealed that he holds a 56-point lead in the Republican primary, leading 2024 presidential candidate and 45th President Donald Trump continues to dispel any notion that he is not the party’s leader.
The May 2023 survey was conducted from May 8 to May 14 and included 1,122 participants. The margin of error for the survey is 2.92 percent, and a confidence level of 95 percent is employed.
Trump won the Republican primary with a resounding 69 percent victory, 56 points clear of his nearest competitor.
Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida and a recently declared candidate, finished in second place with only 13% of the vote.
“THIS POLL JUST OUT. WOW!” Trump reacted on Wednesday on his top-rated social media platform, Truth Social.
“Ron DeSanctimonious had ZERO CHANCE of winning the Republican primary for governor of Florida before a man named President Donald J. Trump endorsed him,” Trump said in a video released on Thursday.

Wednesday, DeSantis attempted to begin his presidential campaign for the year 2024 via a live interview on Twitter with Elon Musk, but the conversation was a total failure.
Unfortunately for DeSantis, the original audience of nearly 600,000 listeners found the Twitter Space to be a disjointed, silent nightmare. A substantial portion of the audience was unable to access the Twitter Space.
Following a thirty-minute debacle, there were only 170,000 listeners left.
Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr., both sons of the president, responded to the setback on Twitter with the hashtag “#DeSaster.”

DeSantis decided against conducting a formal campaign launch event and instead chose to announce his intentions via Twitter.
If a potential challenger wishes to unseat Trump as the presumptive nominee for the Republican or Democratic party in 2024, he or she will face an insurmountable battle, as Trump leads all potential challengers for both parties, according to polls.
Mike Pence, the unsuccessful vice presidential candidate, finished in third place with six percent.
Now that DeSantis has declared his candidacy and is aware that his primary opponent is Donald Trump, he has launched an unprecedented attack on the former president.
