Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Former President Donald Trump 

Another Poll Shows Florida Governor DeSantis Well In Front Of Former President Trump

For the second time this week, a new poll shows Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis thumping former President Donald Trump.

For the second time this week, a new poll shows Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis thumping former President Donald Trump.

The Economist/YouGov poll released Wednesday had asked 1,500 respondents, “If you had to choose, who would you rather see as the Republican nominee for President in 2024?”

Among self-described conservatives, the Republican governor led Trump 51 percent to 33 percent. DeSantis also ran 19 points ahead among moderates, and was up by seven among Republicans.

Overall, DeSantis outpaced Trump in every demographic included in the poll except one: He and Trump tied at 37 percent each among Hispanics.

Surprisingly, DeSantis even ran away from Trump among Trump’s 2020 voters. In that group, he was ahead 49 percent to 38 percent.

Among all respondents, DeSantis was the choice by a 13-point margin — although 35 percent were unsure.

The Free Press reported earlier this week that DeSantis came up big in a poll of voters in four key battleground states that was commissioned by the pro-business group Club for Growth.

That survey found that DeSantis led Trump 56-30 in Florida, 55-35 in Georgia, 48-37 in Iowa, and 52-37 in New Hampshire.

Trump did come out on top in a recent Politico/Morning Consult poll. But that’s not exactly good news for him.

The Politico poll had Trump beating DeSantis by 14 points, 47-33.

Yet that same pollster a week earlier had Trump up by 48-26, meaning DeSantis picked up seven points in a week and Trump remained static.

Meanwhile, other pollsters just a few months ago reported that Trump’s summertime lead over the governor ran between 33 points and 44 points.
