Nevada Poll Shows Florida Gov. DeSantis Is More Popular There Than Trump

Reports of tension between former President Donald Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis are spilling like a wrecked glue truck throughout social media, conservative, and liberal news outlets.

Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis continues to be a hot commodity for some voters.

Another poll, this time from Nevada, has found that DeSantis is viewed more favorably than former President Donald Trump, former Vice President Mike Pence as well as the current president and vice president.

The University of Nevada-Reno polled 1,048 people across the political spectrum in Nevada and asked them to score several prominent pols, both within their state and nationally. The ratings were on a scale of 0 to 100, with a zero being the most unfavorable view.   

Among all respondents, DeSantis scored a 48, compared to 42 for Trump and 43 for Pence. President Joe Biden received a 44 and Vice President Kamala Harris got a 45.

The highest score among the politicians outside Nevada was 49.

Among just Republicans, the Florida governor got a 69, which was slightly behind Trump’s 73.

The poll was the latest strong demonstration of DeSantis’ popularity outside his home state.

In mid-May, a Texas poll showed that DeSantis would receive 28 percent of the vote if the state’s 2024 GOP presidential primary were held now. In that hypothetical, Trump got 44 percent support.

But after pollsters removed Trump from the equation, support for DeSantis jumped to 56 percent.

Meanwhile, at last month’s convention of the Wisconsin Republican Party, the GOP faithful were asked whom they would favor for the 2024 presidential bid.

DeSantis led the list of potential candidates by capturing 38 percent support, compared to 32 percent for Trump.
