Rosendale, Trump lead GOP field in Montana

| pppadmin

PPP’s newest poll finds that Montana Republicans strongly prefer Matt Rosendale and Donald Trump to be their candidates for Senate and President next year.
64% want Rosendale to be their Senate hopeful next year compared to just 10% for businessman Tim Sheehy. Rosendale is widely popular with GOP voters in the state, with 67% viewing him favorably and just 17% unfavorably.
Sheehy meanwhile has basically no profile at all. PPP has found over the years that if you test a number out of the phone book it will generally have about a 5% favorable, 13% unfavorable popularity split. At 10% favorable, 14% unfavorable Sheehy has only a nominally greater profile than a name out of the phone book. And his -4 net favorability rating is 54 points worse than Rosendale’s +50.
In the Presidential race Trump gets 46% to 23% for Ron DeSantis, 5% each for Nikki Haley and Mike Pence, 4% for Chris Christie, 3% for Vivek Ramaswamy, and 2% for Tim Scott.
Trump once again benefits from the crowded Republican field. In a head to head with DeSantis his lead declines from 23 points to 12 at 49-37. DeSantis picks up 14 points while Trump only picks up 3 in a two man race.
Mike Pence (27/47) and Chris Christie (12/53) are notably unpopular with Republican voters in the state.
Donald Trump led the GOP ticket in the state in 2016 and 2020, Matt Rosendale did in 2018. Montana Republicans overwhelmingly want to give them another go in 2024.
PPP surveyed 510 likely Republican primary voters on June 19th and 20th. The margin of error is +/-4.3%. Full results here
