Trump’s 2024 prospects appear brighter than ever in light of the fact that he currently holds a 55-0 record lead with his 2022 midterm primary endorsements.
Moreover, as revealed by the results of a recent Emerson College Polling/The Hill poll, another set of Trump-endorsed candidates has soared to the top of the GOP Senate race in Nevada, alongside gubernatorial primaries.
The poll revealed that the vast majority of Republican primary voters, upwards of 54 percent, indicate that Trump’s endorsement significantly influences their decision regarding whether or not to vote for a given candidate.
Of the remaining respondents, 37 percent indicated that Trump’s endorsement does not influence their selection, whereas only 9 percent remarked that they are less likely to support a Trump-backed candidate.
In Nevada, Trump-endorsed Adam Laxalt is currently the most popular candidate, the preferred choice amongst 50 percent of voters.
Per Spencer Kimball, who serves as the Emerson College Polling Executive Director, “Laxalt has been endorsed by Trump, and he holds 63 percent support among those who say his endorsement makes them more likely to vote for a candidate.”
In addition to the Senate race, the gubernatorial race is also being closely watched in Nevada, with another Trump-endorsed candidate soaring to the top: Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo.
Currently, Lombardo is the most popular candidate, with 33 percent of likely voters supporting his candidacy.
Intriguingly, Nevada has emerged as a key battle state in recent years, as well as one of the states in which Trump alleged voter fraud during the 2020 election. In spite of the mainstream media’s efforts to undermine Trump’s reputation, Republicans in Nevada continue to demonstrate strong support for Trump.
In fact, the poll results reveal that only 33 percent of voters believe that Trump spends an excess of time discussing the results of the 2020 election, with upwards of 11 percent believing that Trump should further focus on the election.
Of all the issues facing Nevadans, the most important include the economy, immigration, education, crime, and healthcare.
The economy is by far and away the largest issue, concerning 45 percent of voters, whereas immigration ranks second, causing concern to 20 percent of voters.
Education, crime, and healthcare clocked in at 12, 8, and 4 percent, respectively, in terms of their relation to voter interests in the upcoming midterm elections.
The poll results are based on the responses of 1,000 “somewhat” or “very likely” choices for the Nevada GOP primary. The margin of error is +/- 3 percent, illuminating that all of Trump’s endorsed candidates hold a comfortable lead.
