Polling Shows Surprising Race Developing Between Don and Ron

On Tuesday of this week, it is believed that Donald Trump will be announcing his plans to run for President again in 2024.

This isn’t at all surprising, and the former President has long been considered the presumptive GOP nominee for the race.  His confidence is brimming, and he’s made plenty of not-so-subtle hints about his plans, so none of this should come as much of a surprise.

But what might shock you is that Trump disciple and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis appears somewhat hellbent on running himself…and Donald Trump is none too thrilled about the idea.

Now, just ahead of The Don’s big announcement, a new poll shows just how excited Americans are for Governor DeSantis.

A new poll shows that more Republicans would prefer to see Ron DeSantis as their 2024 presidential nominee than Donald Trump following the party’s disappointing midterm election results.

42% of Republicans and Republican-leaners said they would prefer to see the Florida governor as the nominee, compared with 35% saying they would prefer the former president, according to a new YouGov America poll.

The poll, conducted in the three days following the elections, is a reversal from the results of a Yahoo News/YouGov poll last month, when 45% said they’d prefer Trump and 35% said they’d prefer DeSantis.

There is some hope still, however.

While DeSantis beat out Trump overall, scoring higher among “not very strong Republicans” and those that “lean towards” the GOP, Trump still edged him out among “strong Republicans,” with 45% favoring him compared with 43% for DeSantis.

DeSantis has been on the receiving end of Trump’s ire for the better part of the month, and there is little doubt that these latest polls will have the former President lashing out again.
