The Hill has a piece that asks that question based on a new pretty big CAPS-Harris poll…
Sixty-three percent of Trump primary voters said there is “at least some chance” they would support a candidate other than former President Trump in the Republican presidential primary, according to a new survey from Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll shared with The Hill on Monday.
The findings come roughly two months before the first Republican presidential primary contests in Iowa. While the poll found that Trump voters were somewhat open to another candidate, it also found that the former president remained dominant in the field.
“Trump has wide support but its depth remains subject to challenge. Dissatisfaction with Biden rather than new support for Trump seems to be driving his numbers,” said Mark Penn, the co-director of the Harvard CAPS-Harris X poll.
According to the latest findings, Trump comes out on top in head-to-head matchups with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) and former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley. Seventy-five percent said they would vote for Trump if the primary were held today, while 29 percent said the same about DeSantis. In a head-to-head matchup against Haley, 81 percent said they would vote for Trump and 19 percent said the same about Haley.
The poll also found that Trump’s legal issues do not appear to be negatively impacting his stance with GOP primary voters either….
