Polling indicates Trump’s nomination by the Republican National Convention is ALL BUT GUARANTEED
By Arsenio Toledo // Apr 13, 2023

Former President Donald Trump's nomination by the Republican National Convention in July 2024 is all but assured, as most polls show Trump with a significant lead among even his most formidable opponents.

Since announcing his third run for the presidency on Nov. 15, 2022, Trump has consistently led almost all major polls. Elections-focused news website FiveThirtyEight has found that Trump's current polling average is at 49.3 percent of the national vote.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis – who has not officially entered the race – received 26.2 percent. Former Vice President Mike Pence, another potential candidate, is at 5.8 percent. The closest declared candidate, former ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, is at 4.3 percent.

Gene Ho, in an episode of his show "About George with Gene Ho" on American Media Periscope, commented how the Republican Party has no other option but to nominate Trump.

"There's no other solution to this," said Ho. "It's going to be Donald J. Trump."

Trump contenders don't stand a chance against him

The only other major Republican figure that can come close to challenging Trump is DeSantis. Steven Shepard, writing for Politico, noted that DeSantis is widely expected to announce his candidacy after the Florida State Legislature adjourns from its current legislative session in early May.

DeSantis is positioning himself to be seen by the Republican electorate as a "more effective … continuation of the former president's political movement," wrote Shepard. But he pointed out that it might not be too effective for DeSantis to sell himself as a successor to the Make America Great Again movement while Trump is still in the running.

Behind DeSantis, Pence and Haley are far longer shots. The former vice president likely won't survive the early caucuses due to Pence positioning himself firmly within a very small bloc of "never-Trump" Republicans. Haley is similarly positioning herself as the most politically experienced candidate who can become a viable alternative for Republicans who may not wish to vote for either Trump or DeSantis.

Another Republican who may have had a similar shot at the nomination as Pence or Haley is Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. But the senator has officially ruled out another campaign, instead choosing to seek a third term in the Senate.

Several other contenders have either officially thrown their hat into the ring or have put the word out that they are considering a run, but these individuals stand even less of a chance at winning the nomination than even Pence, Haley or Cruz.

These declared and potential candidates include former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, businessman Vivek Ramaswamy and South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott. The senator has already formed an exploratory committee and has put out feelers that he is strongly considering a run for the presidency.

"With Donald Trump, his popularity is very, very strong," explained Ho, who pointed out that the other candidates do not have the same level of grassroots support as the former president, whose rallies are always dominated by large numbers of supporters.

"They want the big rallies, and they don't have the big rallies," he added. "Trump gets the big rallies, these other candidates do not."
