Most New York Republicans support former President Donald Trump in the GOP primary race, the latest Siena Research survey found.

The survey asked Republicans, “If the 2024 Republican primary for President was held today, who would you vote for: Donald Trump, or someone else?”

Sixty-four percent of Republicans said they would support Trump, compared to 27 percent who said “someone else” and eight percent who remain unsure.

Of those who said “someone else,” 24 percent chose Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis as their top GOP choice, followed by 17 percent who said anti-woke businessman Vivek Ramaswamy. All other GOP candidates fell to the single digits, including former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (8 percent), former Vice President Mike Pence (7 percent), former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (4 percent), and South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott (3 percent). All remaining candidates listed saw one percent support or less:

The survey was taken August 13-16, 2023, among 803 registered New York voters. It has a +/- 4.4 preempt margin of error and follows several other state-level polls showing Trump as the dominating candidate.

The latest Echelon Insights survey examining the race in New Hampshire, for example, showed Trump up 20 points having 34 percent support and DeSantis sinking to fourth place, garnering nine percent support:
