There is always one breakout surprise candidate in every Presidential election.
In 2024, that candidate appears to be 38-year-old entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy.
And this shocking new poll left Vivek Ramaswamy speechless.
Polls continue to roll in showing Ramaswamy moving into second place in the GOP nominating contest.

Emerson polling director Spencer Kimball wrote that Ramaswamy’s rise came at the expense of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis as Ramaswamy ate into DeSantis’ base.
“Ramaswamy has improved among Republican voters with a postgraduate degree, a group that has previously been part of the DeSantis’ base. In the June Emerson poll, 38% of postgraduates supported DeSantis in the primary, which has dropped to 14% this month. Instead, 17% support Ramaswamy and 32% Trump,” Kimball wrote.
Ramaswamy rose as the America First alternative in this race by pounding home a message based on essential truths the left-wing ruling class refuses to acknowledge about the family, gender, race, patriotism, and what it means to be an American.
1. God is real.
2. There are two genders.

Ramasamy also drew a sharp distinction with the RINOs and warmongers like Joe Biden by pledging to follow George Washington’s policy of avoiding foreign entanglements.

Other than Donald Trump, Ramaswamy is the only other candidate in the race with a plan to end Joe Biden’s reckless war in Ukraine.
Donald Trump showed in 2016 that Republican voters want an outsider to drain the swamp and put America First.
And according to Emerson’s poll – if you add up Trump and Ramaswamy’s vote share – two-thirds of the GOP still supports that agenda.
