Former president Donald Trump would defeat Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis by a wide margin in a hypothetical 2024 Republican presidential primary, new survey findings.

Trump received 55% of Republican support, while DeSantis, his potential rival for the White House nomination, received only 25%, according to an Emerson College survey.

That survey was conducted last week, following Trump’s announcement that he would run for the White House in 2024.

On the Democratic side, President Joe BidenHis approval rating is only 39%, while 53% disapprove of the job he is doing, the Emerson poll showed.

That’s statistically the same result as Biden’s approval rating in Emerson’s previous national poll conducted just before the November midterm elections.

And in a potential 2020-2024 rematch, Biden would beat Trump by a margin of 45% to 41%, the survey found.

If DeSantis had been the GOP nominee in 2024, he would have lost to Biden by the same margin, according to the poll, which found the Democratic incumbent would have received 43% of the vote, compared to 39% for the governor.

When asked about their preference for their party’s 2024 nominee, Democrats who responded to the poll overwhelmingly chose Biden over Vice President Kamala Harris. A total of 42% of Democrats wanted Biden to be the nominee, compared to just 17% for Harris and 12% for Sen. Bernie Sanders, an independent from Vermont.

The Emerson poll found a significant education divide among Republican primary voters, according to Spencer Kimball, executive director of Emerson College polling.

Voters with a high school diploma or less support Trump at 71%. Voters with a higher education, some higher education or professional education support him with 53%.

Republican voters with graduate degrees are the least likely to support Trump, at 32%.

The poll found the economy to be the most important issue facing both Democratic and Republican voters, followed by “threats to democracy,” immigration, abortion, health care and crime.

Additionally, 52% of voters believe Congress should continue to investigate the January 6, 2021, riot at the Capitol by a mob of Trump supporters who disrupted Biden’s Electoral College victory certification.

Another 39% think Congress should drop the investigation.

The survey was conducted between November 18 and 19 with a sample of 1,380 registered voters and a margin of error of 2.5 percentage points.
