DeSantis is on the verge of committing political suicide. If he decides to go though with this cockamamy plot to work with the establishment and NeverTrump to destroy MAGA and President Trump, he’ll never recover… and conservatives, who are now catching on to what’s really going on here, are speaking up loud and clear. And the message is “stay in Florida, Ron, and show loyalty to Trump…” So, will he do it? I don’t know. I’d like to think he would, but he’s always been an “establishment guy. He only “reinvented” himself when he knew Trump would win the election. Just like Lindsey Graham did. But Ron’s friends behind the scenes never changed, and that’s what people are starting to realize and the tide has definitely turned against DeSantis “2024.”
Mediaite reported that President Donald Trump holds gargantuan leads over his Republican rivals in a new poll, beating Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) by 30 points in a full field, and crushing former South Carolina Governor and Trump UN Ambassador Nikki Haley by 61 points in another matchup.
It was not long ago that many analysts were writing political obituaries for Trump in the wake of a chaotic Speaker of the House election and post-midterm soul-searching. Since then, DeSantis has soft-launched his presidential campaign and Haley officially launched hers.
Anyway you slice this move, it’s low down and dirty. And MAGA will not appreciate that, and will turn on DeSantis very quickly, and his name will be mud. Let’s hope he re-thinks this and stops listening to the desperate establishment and NeverTrump donors.
But those developments have not only failed to make a dent in Trump, recent polls show he stands to steamroll the Republican field — none more so than a new Emerson College poll that shows Trump almost doubling DeSantis:
In the 2024 Republican Primary, President Donald Trump continues to hold 55% of the vote. This number reflects his standing in the January Emerson poll, as well as the June 2022 Emerson poll. A quarter of Republican primary voters (25%) support Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for the GOP nomination, a four point decrease since last month when he held 29% support. Former Vice President Mike Pence holds 8%, and former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley holds 5%. Both Pence and Haley have increased their support by two percentage points since last month.
The only thing that could actually change Ron’s mind are the polls coming out showing him losing to Trump by astronomical numbers… I am telling you, this will not end well for DeSantis.
