As former President Trump heads into the Super Tuesday primaries, where he’s expected to dominate, questions linger about his performance compared to polling predictions and the significance of his potential sweep.

Having secured victories in eight of the first nine primary races, Trump is on the verge of cementing his path to the 2024 GOP nomination.

Despite this, his sole serious challenger, Nikki Haley, managed to secure her first primary win in Washington D.C., hinting at resistance within the party.

Polls indicate that Trump is poised for significant victories in all 16 GOP primary races on Super Tuesday, with projections suggesting he could command up to three-quarters of the votes in some states. However, there’s a lingering discussion about Trump’s performance relative to polling expectations.

In Michigan, for instance, Trump defeated Haley by a considerable margin of 42 percentage points (68.1 percent to 26.5 percent). Yet, this substantial victory fell short of the 78.7 percent lead forecasted by FiveThirtyEight’s average poll tracker on the eve of the primary.

These disparities between actual results and polling projections raise questions about the depth of support for Trump within the party and the potential for unexpected outcomes in future primaries.

Despite his frontrunner status, Trump’s performance in upcoming races will likely face scrutiny, particularly in light of his past electoral performances compared to polling forecasts.
