Trump is dominating GOP rivals by 30 points, while Gov. Ron DeSantis struggles to close the gap in the battleground state, according to a Fox Business poll that surveyed the Iowa Republican Caucus.
The poll shows that 46 percent of likely Iowa Republican caucus-goers will back Trump in the primary. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis came in second at 16 percent, while Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) is trailing close behind DeSantis with 11 percent.
Furthermore, Vivek Ramaswamy came in fourth at 6 percent after overtaking both former Vice President Mike Pence, who is polling at 4 percent, and Nikki Haley, who received 5 percent.
Asa Hutchinson and Francis Suarez both received 1 percent, while Larry Elder and Will Hurd polled at less than 1 percent, according to the survey.
Trump is supported by 57 percent of respondents without a college degree, compared to 33 percent of those with one. College graduates gave DeSantis 20 percent of the vote, while Scott received 13 percent.
Voters under the age of 35, without college degrees, tend to lean extremely conservative, and rarely frequent church are some of Trump's strongest constituencies, according to the survey.
DeSantis received the strongest support from men with college degrees, men under the age of 45, and people who regularly attend church. Sen. Tim Scott's best support was from college-educated women, voters aged 55-64, and women over 45, the poll shows.
The poll reveals that Scott has the best chance of gaining ground in Iowa with only 12 percent, the fewest, saying they could never back him. As for Pence, four in 10 respondents said they could never support him.
By a 10-point margin, 66 percent of voters say that defeating President Joe Biden is very essential to their candidate choice, rather than 56 percent of voters that say that backing a candidate who matches their political beliefs is very important.
When it comes to defeating President Biden, 45 percent say Trump is the most likely to beat Biden, nearly double the number who pick DeSantis, according to the poll.
