‘MAGA’ Strong Among Likely Iowa GOP Caucus Voters

Four out of 10 likely Republican caucus voters in Iowa identify as being part of former President Donald Trump’s “Make American Great Again” movement, according to a new poll released on Monday.

The survey, conducted by NBC News, the Des Moines Register, and Mediacom, shows that a combined 40% of likely GOP caucusgoers identify as “ultra MAGA” or “regular MAGA,” while just under 40% identify as “neutral,” and less than 20% as “anti-MAGA”:

  • 18% Ultra MAGA
  • 22% Regular MAGA
  • 38% Neutral on MAGA
  • 17% Anti-MAGA

Most Trump supporters identified as “ultra” or “regular” MAGA, but almost 1 in 3  identified as “neutral.”

Among Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis supporters, few identified as “ultra MAGA” but 1 in 5 identified as “regular MAGA,” and more than half said they were “neutral” on MAGA.

Supporters of former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley were much more likely to be “anti-MAGA,” with over half of her supporters identifying as such, while more than one in three identify as “neutral” on MAGA.

The NBC News/Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa survey was conducted among 705 likely GOP caucusgoers Jan. 7-12 with a margin of error of plus/minus 3.7 percentage points.
