According to a recent Iowa State University/Civiqs poll, former President Trump reportedly has a significant advantage over his opponent GOP presidential hopefuls in Iowa.
In a survey of 434 likely Iowa caucus-goers, 51 percent responded that the former president is their “first choice.” Florida Governor Ron DeSantis came in second place, much behind Trump, with 14% of the vote.
In the survey, participants were also asked which candidates they “did not support.”
Chris Christie, the former governor of New Jersey, received the most criticism, with over a third of those polled stating they opposed his nomination.
The GOP primary in Iowa, which is customarily the first state on the calendar when it comes to primary season, will take place on January 15.
Democrats have made the decision to start the campaign in South Carolina this year. The Democratic primary in the Palmetto State is set for February 3.
