Trump sets out on 2024 campaign trail with fresh momentum

Former President Trump will be making his debut on the campaign trail this weekend in the pivotal early primary states of New Hampshire and South Carolina, amid signs of polling momentum for his 2024 presidential campaign.

Why it matters: Trump is the Lazarus of presidential politics. Just when you think he’s tapped out, he returns from the political dead.

Go deeper: The latest round of public polling shows Trump ahead of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis by significant margins. That’s a marked shift from polls conducted immediately after the midterms — from November to December 2022 —which (on average) gave DeSantis a small edge.

By the numbers: An Emerson College survey, conducted from Jan. 19-21, finds Trump holding a sizable 26-point edge over DeSantis, 55%-29%. Trump also leads Biden in a head-to-head matchup, 44%-41%.
