Washington DC news, Washington news.

A new Fox News poll revealed that since skipping the first Republican primary debate on August 23, former President Donald Trump is only getting more support over his GOP rivals.

Among 1.012 voters, 60 percent chose Trump over the other Republican candidates with in the second position Florida Governor Ron DeSantis with 13 percent of the votes.

Third was Vivek Ramaswamy with 11 percent, followed by Nikki Haley, Mike Pence, Tim Scott, and Chris Christie.

“Unless something changes, this is Trump’s race to lose,” pollster Daron Shaw commented.

  • “The question is, how likely is it that something changes enough to shake Trump’s Republican supporters loose and get them to look at someone else?”

    Contributing to Trump’s overwhelming domination, were women, who raised their support of the 77-year-old by 10 points since the last polling, and voters under 45, white evangelicals, and white men without a college degree.

    Meanwhile, DeSantis’ support among female voters slipped by 8 points since August despite wife Casey’s efforts.

    For a second-choice candidate, respondents settled on two major competitors: DeSantis with 33 percent of favorable votes, and Ramaswamy, 31 percent.
