Donald Trump’s allies remain optimistic that his indictment has increased his popularity as their research shows he is winning the Republican leadership race.
A poll by the Trump campaign team finds that 51% of Republicans see him as their favorite candidate for 2024 – what puts him ahead of his biggest threat, Ron DeSantis, who scored 21 percent.
Separate survey by YouGov Yahoo news They similarly found that 57% of Republicans would vote for Trump while only 31% would support DeSantis.
This comes after the Trump team claimed yesterday that more than $4 million was donated to his presidential campaign within 24 hours after he was charged.

A poll by Team Trump claims he has 51 percent of the Republican vote
Trump’s team conducted a full field ballot test of 14 potential Republican candidates on Friday and Saturday — two days after he was impeached.
While Trump and DeSantis came out on top in the latest poll, former Vice President Mike Pence came in third with six percent of the vote.
Nikki Haley finished fourth with four percent as all other candidates had two percent or less each.
A general ballot test in the general election also put Trump ahead of Biden 47-43 — a number that hasn’t changed much since his previous team’s poll in March.
Meanwhile, 47 percent of those surveyed said he would not get a fair trial in Manhattan.
Trump has repeatedly expressed concerns about his trial in the Democratic nation.
Yesterday the 76-year-old politician said his indictment had inspired his $4 million presidential campaign.
A quarter of the money came from new donors and payments can be traced to all 50 states, according to a fundraising email Trump sent Friday night.
In the letter, Trump wrote, “This is the battle I so willingly participated in when I decided to treat the entire Washington Machine like a political outsider 8 years ago, and be your voice.” ”
There is no way to confirm the numbers until the campaign submits its first quarter report by April 15th.
Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg has been accused of pursuing a political “witch-hunt” against Trump
DeSantis, Trump’s biggest leadership rival, had to walk a political tightrope during the indictment debate
Trump was dramatically indicted Thursday after a years-long investigation into the money paid to Daniels.
He is due to be arrested on Tuesday and faces up to four years in prison if convicted.
It was a victory for Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who reheated the investigation and doggedly pursued the case.
But Trump and his family members have repeatedly accused Prague of a politically charged “witch-hunt” that will make voters more sympathetic to the former president.
DeSantis, Trump’s biggest leadership challenger, on Saturday had to walk a political tightrope while debating the indictment.
The Florida governor — who has not officially fired his leadership bid — has accused the Manhattan district attorney of weaponizing the law against Trump.
But he avoided using the former president’s name in an hour-long campaign-style speech on Saturday.
And it showed how potential candidates for the 2024 Republican nomination were put in the awkward position of having to fall in line behind the frontrunner.
