Former President Donald Trump, who appears to be on pace to once again win the GOP nomination, got another round of good news on Friday, thanks to the results of a major new survey.

Trump’s lead over President Joe Biden is expanding “exponentially,” author and political analyst Dick Morris told Newsmax.

During a segment on “Saturday Report,” Morris recounted that polls pitting Biden against Trump indicate a trend of the 45th president widening his lead.

poll out of Rasmussen Reports, Morris stated, “has us 8 points ahead: 49[%] to 41[%]. And just two weeks ago, Trump had a 6-point lead. And about two weeks before that, he had a 4-point lead. And a month before that, he was only 2 ahead. So this is expanding really exponentially.”

Morris determined during his interview that Trump’s lead was due to “seismic” changes in demographic voting trends, particularly among Black and Latino voters.

“Latinos, for example, who Biden carried by 21 points in 2020, Trump is now leading them by 11 points,” Morris said. “And among Blacks, who Biden carried by 92[%] to 8[%], Trump is now only 10 behind — a gain of 43 points. Trump got 8% of the Black vote in 2020. Now, the last poll shows him at 39[%]. I think that’s probably too high, but it’s extraordinary.”

In addition, Trump is polling better among self-described Independents.

“Trump benefits from both stronger partisan intensity and a double-digit advantage among independent voters,” the Rasmussen analysis noted. “In a head-to-head matchup with Biden, Trump gets 83% of Republican votes, compared to Biden’s 74% among Democrats.

“Among voters not affiliated with either major party, Trump leads with 46% to Biden’s 35%. These gaps are not significantly affected by the inclusion of RFK Jr., [Jill] Stein or [Cornell] West on the ballot,” the report continued.

The analysis said, “The survey doesn’t show Kennedy having a large impact on the outcome. Nor is the margin significantly affected by the inclusion of Green Party candidate Jill Stein and former Harvard Professor Cornell West.”

Rasmussen added, “In a three-way match-up between Biden, Trump and RFK Jr., 44% would vote for Trump, 38% for Biden and 10% for Kennedy. In February, Kennedy had 12%. In a five-watch matchup, 45% would vote for Trump, 38% for Biden, nine percent (9%) for Kennedy, two percent (2%) for West and one percent (1%) for Stein.”
