Delving deeper into likely voters, Haley’s lead expands to a significant 12 percentage points at 56-44. The dynamics remain consistent in the hypothetical Biden-DeSantis matchup, while Trump experiences a slight dip in support to 51% against Biden’s 49%.
The race within the Republican party reveals Trump’s dominance, securing 54% of registered Republican voters’ support for the GOP nomination. Notably, Haley and DeSantis find themselves in a tie at 12%, indicating a shift in momentum since March. Other candidates trail far behind, with no contender garnering more than 4% support in the current poll.
The survey, conducted from Nov. 2-7, 2023, involved 856 registered voters nationwide, with a margin of error of +/-4.5 percentage points. Among likely voters, the sample size of 668 carries a margin of error of +/-5 percentage points.
The Marquette Law School Poll has consistently depicted a tight race between Trump and Biden among registered voters since May, as reflected in Table 1. In September, likely voters favored Biden at 51%, while Trump secured 49%. Unfortunately, likely voter results are unavailable for earlier polls.
This intriguing political landscape paints a picture of shifting alliances and evolving voter preferences. As the nation eagerly anticipates the 2024 elections, these early indicators suggest a compelling narrative taking shape on both sides of the political spectrum.
