2024 SHOCKER: Donald Trump losing to this Republican

Donald Trump was the first-announced candidate in the 2024 field.

But will he win the Republican nomination for President a third time?

And a shocking new 2024 poll shows Donald Trump losing to this Republican.

A spate of polling data after the Midterm elections show a growing segment of the Republican Party is looking for a new leader in 2024.

Many conservatives put at least some blame for the GOP’s disappointing Midterm performance on the candidates former President Donald Trump endorsed in crucial Senate and Gubernatorial elections, as well his decision to sit on over $75 million he raised from his supporters for the specific stated purpose of winning those races.

While Trump is one of the frontrunners in the 2024 Republican Presidential Primary, he is not the runaway leader of the pack many – including himself – thought he would be.

That’s because polls from multiple battleground states are beginning to consistently show that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is leading Trump.

But what was truly shocking was a Hinckley Institute/Deseret News poll that was recently released, showing the former President is not just trailing Governor DeSantis, but also Never-Trump RINO Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) in a potential 2024 Utah GOP Primary.

“If the Republican presidential primary were held today, only 14.6% of Utahns would vote for the former president,” Deseret News reported. “Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis topped the list at 24.2%, followed by Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, who lost her reelection bid to a Trump-endorsed candidate, at 16.4%. Former Vice President Mike Pence and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz both had 6%, while former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley came in at 3.7%.”

“In the poll, 20.7% of respondents didn’t know who they would vote for and 8.5% would choose another candidate,” the report continued. “Those results reflect all voters regardless of party affiliation.”

“His power, his command over the Republican Party seems to be waning to the point that when you ask Utah Republicans if they would consider a different candidate, they clearly would,” Hinckley Institute Director Jason Perry told the Deseret News.

“There was a time when conservative candidates wanted his endorsement and felt that they needed a Trump endorsement to be reelected,” he added. “That is not the case now.”

In fairness, Utah was never one of Trump’s best states.

Never-Trump Founding Father Mitt Romney represents Utah in the Senate, and Trump’s style never played well there.

In the 2016 Utah Caucus, Trump finished a distant third, winning just 14% of the vote as Senator  Ted Cruz (R-TX) won the caucus with 69%.

In the General Election, Trump won the state with just 46% of the vote as Never-Trump third party candidate Evan McMullin – a closet Democrat and former CIA footsoldier – picked up 21%.

The former President will clearly face more of an uphill battle in the 2024 Republican Primary than ever before.

And it is an open question if Donald Trump can win the nomination for a third time.
