According to a poll that was issued on Tuesday, Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis holds a 23-point advantage over former President Donald Trump among Republicans in the event of a hypothetical Republican presidential primary.
According to the findings of a study conducted by USA Today and Suffolk University, 56 percent of Republican voters and those who lean Republican choose DeSantis, while only 33 percent would back Trump. Over sixty percent of respondents indicated they want a nominee who will maintain Trump’s policies but is not Trump, while thirty-one percent want the former president to run for office again.
According to David Paleologos, director of the Political Research Center at Suffolk University, “Republicans and conservative independents increasingly desire Trumpism without Trump.”A month ago, President Trump made history by becoming the first major candidate to enter the campaign for the White House in 2024. However, recent developments suggest that Trump’s hold over the Republican Party may be waning.
Many people inside his own party have pointed the finger of blame at him for the poor showing that the Republican Party had in the midterm elections. A significant number of the candidates he sponsored in important races ended up losing after their primary opponents, who were perceived to be more electable but less loyal to Trump, were victorious over them.
In addition, several Republicans have criticized Trump for having dinner with musician Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, and white nationalist Nick Fuentes, both of whom have been known to promote antisemitic conspiracy theories. Fuentes has also been known to make antisemitic comments.
Trump has stated that he was unaware of Fuentes’ political beliefs before to meeting with him. According to the results of the poll, Trump’s approval rating among Republicans has dropped from 75% in October to 64% in December. His negative rating has also increased throughout this time period, going from 18 percent to 23 percent.
In a hypothetical head-to-head contest between Trump and President Biden, pollsters showed that President Biden had a lead of 47 percent to 40 percent. In the poll, DeSantis had a lead of almost 4 points over Biden, with 47 percent compared to 43 percent. Nearly two-thirds of Republicans and voters leaning Republican want DeSantis to run for president in 2024, while only 24 percent of Republicans and people leaning Republican do not want him to run.
