Former President Donald Trump continues to show off in Texas, and it doesn't look like that's going to change any time soon.
Trump has a sizable lead in a hypothetical Texas 2024 Republican primary race.
A CWS Research/Defend Texas Liberty PAC survey found Trump dominating with a lead over the rest of the pack, boasting 43 percent support.
Trump Dominates AGAIN
"Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis came in a distant second with 27 percent support," reports Breitbart. "No other candidate came close, as presidential candidate Nikki Haley placed third with five percent support followed by Sen. Ted Cruz and former Vice President Mike Pence, who garnered four percent support each."
"Anti-woke businessman Vivek Ramaswamy, who also formally joined the presidential race, garnered two percent support, while Sen. Tim Scott and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo saw one percent support each," reported Breitbart.
The survey shows an increase for Trump and a drop in support for DeSantis in Texas over the last two months.
"In January, Trump and DeSantis were close, with 36 percent support and 35 percent support, respectively. In other words, Trump has experienced a seven point gain, and DeSantis has seen an eight point loss since January’s survey," reported Breitbart.
The survey was taken February 28 – March 2, 2023, and there were 879 2024 Texas Republican primary voters.
If the trajectory continues to look like this, Trump will likely secure his ticket to the 2024 presidential election.
