Presidential Candidate Ryan Binkley Showing Up in Opinion Polls Ahead of the Republican Primary Debate

New Polling Shows Binkley Gaining Name Recognition and Support Among Voters

MANCHESTER, NH (Aug. 23, 2023)–As presidential candidate Ryan Binkley flew to the East Coast to appear on “Good Morning America” and hit the campaign trail in New Hampshire this week, his poll numbers finally began to reflect the enthusiasm of thousands of voters he’s met in the months since launching his campaign.

“Our message is about the people, especially those who feel overlooked and not seen. And I understand that feeling, because I wasn’t seen on a national platform until recently,” Binkley said. “We want people to know, we are listening. And that message is ringing clear.”

Though Binkley’s name had not been listed alongside his 13 opponents running for the GOP presidential nomination in the opinion polls conducted over the past few months, that changed recently as the campaign gained tens of thousands of new donors and Binkley appeared on national news outlets including CNN, ABC, Fox Business Network, NewsNation, Newsmax, OAN and Trinity Broadcasting Network.

In Monday’s HarrisX 2024 Presidential Race National Survey, Binkley received 1% among likely Republican primary voters. A leading market research company that was the most accurate pollster of the 2020 U.S. presidential election, HarrisX said voters are looking for new candidates this election, as evidenced by 64% saying President Biden should not run for a second term and 56% saying the same about Trump.

“We’re so broken as a country. It’s time for us to end this division. We’re fighting ourselves,” Binkley said. “I will lead as president to unite our country. People are ready for our vision. There’s a movement happening.”

After visiting more than 60 counties in Iowa for the past two months, Binkley earned 1.2% support from those polled by the Trafalgar group for its Iowa GOP Presidential Caucus Survey conducted last week and picked up 1% among likely Republican primary voters in Iowa in this week’s HarrisX 2024 Presidential Race Iowa Survey.

The businessman also received 1% among registered voters in a Harvard CAPS / Harris national poll, equal to Asa Hutchinson and Doug Burgum. 

In another survey of 4,000 Americans across the country, Binkley was chosen by 1.7% of respondents who were registered and likely to vote in the Pulse on the 2024 Republican Primary national poll from Campaign Insights. The same company also reported that their online survey of voters showed 3.4% support for Binkley in Iowa and 1.7% in New Hampshire.

“We’ve been sharing more about the message in my heart – to see our country get united and solve our biggest problems,” said Binkley, a Dallas businessman and pastor. “Our budget is just out of control. We’re seeing our nation get downgraded in our debt. We need someone who knows finance. I’m a CEO of a financial investment bank, a middle-market company in Dallas with about 400 employees. I’m running because of a vision to really change the culture of our country and create a new era for America.”

Binkley is co-founder and CEO of the mergers and acquisitions firm Generational Group. Under his leadership, Generational Group has grown to 16 offices in North America and has sold over 8 billion dollars’ worth of businesses. He and his wife, Ellie, founded Create Church, also in the Dallas area, to care for all members of the community through teaching God’s word, urban missions, food drives, youth ministry and marriage support. As the founder of The Way to Freedom nonprofit, Binkley has combined the wisdom of a businessman and the heart of a pastor to generate fresh, creative ideas to foster unity and solve our nation’s problems.
