Iowa vot­ers not per­suad­ed by endorse­ments Repub­li­can can­di­dates have received

Key endorse­ments of top con­tenders in the Repub­li­can Par­ty’s 2024 pres­i­den­tial field may not hold much weight with Iowa vot­ers as can­di­dates try to appeal to states favor­ing for­mer Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump, the dom­i­nant front-run­ner.
In recent weeks, GOP lead­ers and orga­ni­za­tions have thrown their sup­port behind Trump’s rivals, but he holds a 30-per­cent­age-point lead over his com­pe­ti­tion, accord­ing to a new NBC News/Des Moines Register/Mediacom poll of Iowa. Addi­tion­al­ly, 54% of like­ly Repub­li­can cau­cus­go­ers say Gov. Kim Reynolds’s (R‑IA) endorse­ment of Gov. Ron DeSan­tis (R‑FL) last month will have no effect on their antic­i­pat­ed vote. Com­par­a­tive­ly, 31% said Reynold­s’s sup­port of DeSan­tis made them more like­ly to vote for the Flori­da gov­er­nor.
