Former President Donald Trump has an advantage over his possible primary opponents when it comes to Republican women, according to a new Fox News poll. 

According to the poll, 40% of Republican women voters would choose to support Trump over former South Carolina governor and U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley and possible contender Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. 

The poll shows that 23% of GOP women would support DeSantis and 9% would support Haley. Former Vice President Mike Pence came in with 8% support.

46% of the women polled said that the economy was the top issue facing the country that they were concerned about.  

As of now, Trump, Haley and Republican entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy are the only ones who have declared their run for the presidency as GOP candidates.
