This is shocking!
Most Republicans strongly believe that former President Donald Trump is a shoo-in for the GOP primary in 2024. However, a surprising new poll shows Florida Governor Ron DeSantis giving Trump a run for his money in the state of Florida.
According to data collected by USA Today, it found that former President Donald Trump lead Gov. Ron DeSantis by a small margin, 47%-40%. The 7% difference between the two showed a very close race among Florida Republican voters.
Many political expert believe this is proof enough to Republicans that Trump is not a guarantee in Florida. While Trump easily handed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio a quick defeat in 2016, DeSantis has proven himself to be a top level Republican who has excellent leadership qualities and is just as fearless as Trump was when he was in power.
Director of the Boston-based Suffolk University Political Research Center, David Paleologos, stated, “DeSantis is competitive in this poll, even against the former (Republican) president.”
Even after rumor swirled in the mainstream media about Trump and DeSantis having frustrations with each other, both the former president and DeSantis quickly dispelled those rumors and said they have a tight relationship.
