Former President Donald Trump continues to dominate in polls, despite the recent presidential campaign announcement from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
The Iowa caucus shows Trump in the lead by 42 points.
The data comes from the latest Emerson College Polling data.
Trump On Top
"The survey, taken among 442 Iowa Republican caucus goers, found Trump leading the Republican primary field with overwhelming majority support — 62 percent," reported Breitbart. "No other candidate comes remotely close. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who formally jumped into the race on Wednesday, came in a distant second, 42 points behind, with 20 percent support."
"Former Vice President Mike Pence and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley tied for third place, having five percent support each, followed by Sen. Tim Scott with three percent. Notably, Scott formally jumped into the presidential race on Monday," according to the report.
Vivek Ramaswamy, anti-woke businessman, came through with just two percent support.

It is important to note, this survey was taken before DeSantis formally threw his name into the hat officially.
"The poll also examined potential 2024 general election matchups and found Trump leading President Joe Biden by 11 points, or 49 percent to Biden’s 38 percent. It also showed DeSantis leading Biden but by a lesser amount — 45 percent to Biden’s 38 percent," reported Breitbart.
"The Iowa survey comes ahead of DeSantis’s planned blitz of the state, as he is slated to visit the Hawkeye State next week, beginning his 'campaign kickoff' in Des Moines on Tuesday," according to reports from Breitbart News.
