Trump way ahead in Republican primary field

By Ninian Carter

August 23, 2023 - Former U.S. President Donald Trump remains far ahead of his nearest rivals in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, both in the polls and in campaign donations.

Former U.S. President Donald Trump continues to dominate the Republican primary field in the race for the Republican presidential nomination.

In the RealClearPolitics average of national polls, Trump is 40 points clear of his nearest rival, Ron DeSantis.

Trump also dominates campaign donations which rely heavily on emails of emotional appeals, having amassed over $72 million for his war chest in just eight months.

So confident is Trump that he’s planning to skip the first Republican debate in Milwaukee, instead opting to be interviewed by controversial political commentator, Tucker Carlson.
