Later, Trump is set to deliver remarks at 3 p.m. with doors opening at noon at the Horizons Event Center in Clive, Iowa.
According to the latest Iowa State University poll, Donald Trump continues to lead among Iowa Republicans with 55% support. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is in second place with 17%, marking a 3-point increase from the previous poll. Other notable candidates include Nikki Haley at 11%, Vivek Ramaswamy at 5%, and Tim Scott at 4%.
Dave Peterson, an Iowa State University Political Science professor, noted, “It’s now looking more like there isn’t a sort of coalesced alternative to Donald Trump.” He attributes Trump’s sustained lead to his well-known public profile and clear political stance, adding, “People know who he is, and they’ve got really strong opinions on him.”
The poll also revealed that Chris Christie is the least favored among Iowa Republicans, followed by Vice President Mike Pence, who is polling at just 1%. Peterson suggests that the current situation in Israel could influence voter preferences, particularly benefiting Nikki Haley due to her stronger stance on foreign policy.
This is the second in a series of five monthly surveys leading up to the Iowa Caucuses. The next poll is scheduled for mid-November. Overall, the race appears to be Trump’s to lose unless a significant event changes the current dynamics.
