Fox News’ morning team was caught a little off guard when co-host Brian Kilmeade blurted out “this is stunning” after seeing a new presidential poll that showed Republican frontrunner Donald Trump handily beating President Joe Biden.

“A gigantic win,” he said.

But that wasn’t the extent of the bad news in store for Team Biden in the poll.

How Unbelievable is It?

President Biden’s re-election campaign can’t rest on their laurels, even if by some miracle (or shenanigans) Donald Trump is not the Republican nominee.

Perhaps more wishcasting than anything else, the poll showed Republican challenger Nikki Haley with an almost unbelievable lead over Biden.

The Daily Caller reports:

“This is stunning,” Kilmeade said, reacting to the poll. “This is a gigantic win, Trump wins by 4%, which is impressive considering the amount of court cases…but how unbelievable is it? I don’t remember a time in which somebody trailing in the primary by 40 points in most elections, about 20 in Iowa, a little bit less in New Hampshire, even trailing in her home state of South Carolina, but head to head against the current president, is up by 17 points!”

While the Wall Street Journal poll did show Haley beating Biden even more handily than Trump, the former president is so far ahead of every other GOP presidential primary candidate that it’s hard to imagine any of them catching up.

The Caller noted, “Despite Haley’s lead against Biden in a hypothetical general match, Haley’s chances of making up the deficit to beat Trump in the primary are slim, according to CNN’s senior data reporter Harry Enten.”

Looking Good for Trump

“There is no precedent for anyone coming back from that large of a deficit nationally right now,” Enten said recently on CNN. “You see Nikki Haley … she was 52 points behind in the latest NBC News poll. She’s cut the deficit but she’s still down by 45 points.”

That’s because there is no modern precedent for a Republican like Trump. He is enormously popular among Republican voters because they feel that, after long having been neglected, someone is finally listening to them.

Whether or not the party bigwigs have or will finally accept that truth will determine who becomes president in 2024.
