Governor Ron DeSantis has now become more popular than Trump in the state of Florida when it comes to running for president in 2024.
According to a new poll, DeSantis has an +8 point lead over Trump in the USA Today/Suffolk University poll of 2024 presidential prospective candidates.
That same poll back in January had Trump leading DeSantis by +7 points.
Here’s more from Daily Wire:
A new poll finds that since January, Republicans in Florida have significantly changed their presidential preference, with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis now holding virtually the same lead over former President Donald Trump that Trump held over him then.
In January, Trump led DeSantis in the USA Today/Suffolk University poll of 2024 presidential prospective candidates 47%-40%, but the latest poll shows DeSantis with a 48%-40% lead.
“It is one data point suggesting a shift in preferences from GOP voters away from Trump and toward DeSantis from Republicans who know both potential combatants quite well,” David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk University Political Research Center, explained to USA Today.
Ok let’s do our own poll. If voting today, who would you want to win the GOP nomination in 2024?
