According to a Fox News poll, former President Trump’s lead has reportedly grown in the three weeks since the first Republican presidential primary debate.

Trump’s support has grown and his lead as the Republican front-runner has widened despite his absence from the Fox News-hosted GOP debate in August, according to Fox.

According to the poll, 60 percent of Republican primary voters prefer Trump, up from 53 percent in the Fox poll conducted before to the debate in August.

Following the discussion, support for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis decreased. Support for DeSantis, who has typically trailed Trump in surveys, decreased from 16 to 13 percent, according to the survey.

With 11 percent, entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy maintained his third-place position.

Nikki Haley, a former U.S. ambassador to the UN, received 5% of the vote, while Sens.

Tim Scott (S.C.) and Mike Pence, a former vice president, each received 3%. Chris Christie, a former governor of New Jersey, received 2%.

Polling revealed a close race between DeSantis and Ramaswamy, each hovering about 30% support, when voters were asked to identify their second choice if Trump withdrew from the campaign.

The 27th of September will see the second Republican debate, which Fox Business Channel will moderate.
