Trump Still the Republican Front-Runner After Second GOP Debate: Experts


Former President Donald Trump is still the front-runner for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination despite skipping the second GOP primary debate. 

According to the New York Post, E. O’Brien Murray, campaign strategist for Republicans and conservative Democrats, stated that Wednesday night’s debate had, “No impact on President Trump’s nomination.”

He also criticized Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) for “Going after Trump” and noted that this move, “makes his supporters much less likely to ever support you.”

“More attacks on President Biden and even the vice president would have been better than the crosstalk and attacks on other GOP candidates,” Murray concluded.

Americans expressed similar opinions on X, formerly Twitter.

Sen. J.D. Vance (R-Ohio) stated, “Last night’s debate showed why Trump is not just the inevitable nominee but also necessary.”

“The economic messaging was awful,” he went on.

“Pence shouting ‘PEACE THROUGH STRENGTH’ into the void. Healthcare discussion was the low point, and that’s saying something,” he added.

“No one but Trump for 2024. That stage was full of frauds,” she concluded.
