MAGA COUNTRY: TRUMP HAS A BIGGER LEAD WITH REPUBLICANS IN CALIFORNIA THAN IN TEXAS
The GOP primary polling trends between California and Texas have shown a dynamic shift in what GOP voters in the Golden State are seeking for when it comes to voting the next president, despite the fact that President Donald Trump has won over Republican supporters statewide.
Trump currently maintains a 29-point lead for the 2024 GOP primary nomination, according to a recent PPIC poll of Republican primary voters in the state of California, giving him a larger lead among California Republicans than the GOP base in Texas.
According to CWS Research statistics, Trump is in the lead among Republican voters in Texas by 24 points; this shows a 7-point decline for Trump in the Lone Star State and a 7-point increase for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
Texas has shocked many conservative voters with this political turn, despite frequently being praised for standing for liberty and freedom in a patchwork of blue states.
While Trump still leads widely in Texas, the supposedly deep blue state of California has, so far, embraced the 45th president even more powerfully than Midwesterners in that area of the country.
According to RSBN, a recent poll by the UC Berkeley Center of Governmental Studies revealed that Trump had an 18-point advantage among Republican voters. The survey was taken between May 17 and May 22.
The PPIC survey was performed virtually simultaneously (May 17-24).
In the 2024 presidential election, is it possible that California may go fully red for Trump? Republicans in California stand a fair possibility of supporting Trump by a wide margin in the primary, despite the fact that it looks unlikely to happen in the general election.
Even Trump himself has discussed the prospect of winning California in the general election, saying in an interview with his son Donald Trump Jr. that he didn’t believe it was an unwinnable state. He said, “Everyone says you can’t win California, but I think that’s completely false.”
