It is expected a female candidate will be chosen to represent the Democrats with former first lady Michelle Obama leading the polls on 41 percent.
A source close to Donald Trump told Express.co.uk that the former President expects Ms Obama to make a bid for the White House in 2024, but experts have suggested she is not interested.
Meghan came in second place on 19 percent despite not having formally entered the political sphere.
He said: “Megan Markle is a candidate Democratic voters can project their hopes and preferences on.
“Because yes she is a well-known figure but she is not a well-known political figure.
“Although those who have a sense for politics know that she is of a woke, progressive, left-liberal disposition, we don’t know what she thinks in detail on a wide range of issues. That doesn’t matter for most people.”

He added: “Among Democrats she is young, female, attractive, bi-racial. She has a certain pizazz because of her celebrity status and all of that.
“She benefits from that being the fresh face and also by comparison with her would-be competitors.”
Writing for MailOnline last month Dan Wootton said Meghan was “obsessed with US politics”.
He claimed he had “no doubt” Meghan “views herself a major political figure of the future”.
“Becoming the first female President of the United States, of course!”
The poll surveyed 1,500 likely American voters between August 2 and 4, consisting of 35 percent Democrat, 33 percent Republican and 32 percent Independent voters.
