A 2024 Republican presidential primary poll shows former President Donald J. Trump holding a colossal 40-point lead over the rest of the potential field if he decides to run.

The Harvard CAPS-Harris poll, obtained by the Hill, reveals that Trump drew 56 percent of respondents’ support, while 16 percent chose Gov.

Ron Desantis (R-FL), making him the second leading candidate. Former Vice President Mike Pence garnered seven percent of the response if Trump were to run.

Trump has repeatedly teased and hinted at a 2024 bid since December 2020, including at CPAC earlier this year and a Georgia rally in March. He more recently told the New Yorker he is “very close to making a decision.”

Trump recently spoke about the possibility squaring off with DeSantis in the 2024 primaries.

“I don’t know if Ron is running, and I don’t ask him,” he told the New Yorker. “It’s his prerogative. I think I would win.”

The idea of a Trump-DeSantis ticket in 2024 has also made headlines, with the 45th President offering his thoughts on the Florida governor as a potential running mate. During an interview on Newsmax TV’s Wake Up America, host Rob Finnerty asked Trump about the possibility.

“Well, I get along with him,” Trump responded. “I was very responsible for his success because I endorsed him, and he went up like a rocket ship.”

While this poll has found the 45th President will dominate the field if he chooses to run, a different race begins to take shape should he not launch a candidacy in 2024.

If Trump does not run, DeSantis garners 36 percent of the vote, taking a 19-point lead over the field. The second closest candidate is Pence, at 17 percent, while Sen. Ted Cruz (R-FL) and former Ambassador to United Nations Nikki Haley both draw 8 percent. The Florida governor has risen to prominence in the Republican Party with his handling of the Wuhan coronavirus in the Sunshine State and his signing of legislation “dissolving Disney’s special tax and governing district,” as Breitbart News noted.

The poll surveyed 1,308 registered voters June 28-29. “The survey is an online sample drawn from the Harris Panel and weighted to reflect known demographics,” the Hill notes. “As a representative online sample, it does not report a probability confidence interval.”

Report: Labor Productivity Dropped Most Since 1948

by Casey Harper

 

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics released new economic data Tuesday showing the sharpest quarterly decline in labor productivity since 1948.

BLS reported a 4.6% decrease in labor productivity in the second quarter of this year as the economy shrank and labor costs rose. This data follows a decrease in productivity the first quarter of 2022 as well.

“From the same quarter a year ago, nonfarm business sector labor productivity decreased 2.5 percent, reflecting a 1.5-percent increase in output and a 4.1-percent increase in hours worked,” BLS said. “The 2.5-percent decline in labor productivity from the same quarter a year ago is the largest decline in this series, which begins in the first quarter of 1948.”

Labor costs have significantly increased in the past year.

“Unit labor costs in the nonfarm business sector increased 10.8 percent in the second quarter of 2022, reflecting a 5.7-percent increase in hourly compensation and a 4.6-percent decrease in productivity,” BLS said. “Unit labor costs increased 9.5 percent over the last four quarters. This is the largest four-quarter increase in this measure since a 10.6-percent increase in the first quarter of 1982. BLS calculates unit labor costs as the ratio of hourly compensation to labor productivity. Increases in hourly compensation tend to increase unit labor costs and increases in productivity tend to reduce them.”

That spike in labor costs coincided with a decline in productivity.

“Labor productivity, or output per hour, is calculated by dividing an index of real output by an index of hours worked by all persons, including employees, proprietors, and unpaid family workers. The second quarter of 2022 is the second consecutive quarter in which output decreased while hours increased. The resulting productivity declines over these two quarters reduced the average annual productivity growth rate since the fourth quarter of 2019 – the last quarter not affected by the COVID-19 pandemic – to 0.6 percent in the nonfarm business sector. Output and hours worked in the nonfarm business sector are now 2.9 percent and 1.5 percent above their fourth-quarter 2019 levels, respectively.”

Despite wage growth, those increases have not kept pace with inflation.

“Real hourly compensation, which takes into account changes in consumer prices, decreased 4.4 percent in the second quarter of 2022, which followed a 4.4-percent decline in the first quarter of 2022,” BLS said.

The data comes amid a national debate over the definition of a recession and whether the U.S. has entered one.

The White House has pointed to the labor market, particularly low unemployment, when arguing there is no recession. But this data shows that for the past two quarters, labor productivity has dropped.

Federal economic data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis in late July showed that U.S. gross domestic product decreased by 0.9% in the second quarter of this year. The BEA reported GDP shrank by 1.6% in the first quarter.

“The decrease in real GDP reflected decreases in private inventory investment, residential fixed investment, federal government spending, state and local government spending, and nonresidential fixed investment that were partly offset by increases in exports and personal consumption expenditures…” the BEA said.
