(FixThisNation.com) – An Emerson College poll of 500 likely GOP Kentucky voters conducted between May 10 and 12, found that Trump was leading the poll by 56 points.
The poll specifically showed that 70 percent of voters would support him in the 2024 GOP primary, while only 14 percent would support his biggest potential rival Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. A Trump spokesperson told Newsweek that Trump has been winning over both national and statewide polls and that it was clear that Trump would be able to take back the White House in the 2024 presidential election.
The poll took place after Trump was found by a New York jury to be liable for sexually abusing Carroll, a former Elle columnist, at a Bergdorf Goodman department store in the mid-1990s. According to the jury’s decision, Trump had also defamed Carroll when denying the accusations she brought forth against him.
Despite this recent ruling in the sexual abuse case, 52.3 percent of female voters stated that they would support Trump in the next GOP primary in Kentucky. In contrast, 47.2 percent of male voters stated they would support Trump, while the rest identified as non-binary.
Of those who said they would support DeSantis, who has not yet announced his bid for the 2024 presidential election, 51.5 percent were male, 47.1 percent were female and 1.5 percent identified as non-binary.
This is not the first time that accusations of sexual assault have been brought against Trump. Trump has repeatedly denied all the accusations. He is however heard in an infamous Access Hollywood tape stating that he grabs women “by the p***y.”
