Trump’s Pro-Jewish Stance Highlighted by Matt Keelen
Republican strategist Matt Keelen and Democratic Strategist Kevin Walling discuss the Republican Jewish summit where potential candidates for the 2024 election spoke. They also analyze whether Rep. Dean Phillips, D-Minn., stands a chance against President Biden.
According to a recent poll conducted in Iowa, former President Trump continues to lead over other potential candidates for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.
The poll, conducted by NBC News/Des Moines Register/Mediacom from Oct. 22-26, shows Trump with a 43% support among likely caucus goers in Iowa. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and former U.N. ambassador and South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley each received 16% support in the poll. Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina secured 7% support, while no other candidate reached 4%.
The caucuses are scheduled for January 15, 2024, 11 weeks from the release of the poll.

Trump’s lead in Iowa has increased by four points since August, according to the survey by J. Ann Selzer, an experienced Iowa pollster.
The poll also indicates that Trump’s supporters exhibit more enthusiasm and dedication to their candidate compared to those supporting DeSantis or Haley.

In a rare instance, Trump became the first current or former president to be indicted in a criminal case earlier this year. He is currently facing four trials, two of which involve his alleged attempt to overturn his 2020 election loss to President Biden.

However, these indictments appear to have boosted Trump’s support among Republican voters. Trump maintains significant leads over his rivals in the latest surveys in the critical early voting states of New Hampshire and South Carolina, and he holds even larger leads in national polls.
