DeSantis’ Popularity Declines as More People Get Acquainted, Says Trump

Former President Trump aimed at GOP presidential candidate Ron DeSantis in a video posted to his Truth Social website.

In the 33-second video titled “The more people get to know Ron DeSanctimonious, the lower his polls are going,” Trump talked extensively about DeSantis’ poll numbers.

The former president then predicted the Florida governor will be in an even worse position than he is currently within six months.

Kaplan: Ramaswamy, DeSantis Trail Behind Trump

According to Kaplan Strategies, BioTech billionaire Vivek Ramaswamy has been making significant strides alongside DeSantis. Both candidates assert they have the backing of 12 percent of likely GOP voters.

Trump, however, still tops GOP primary polls at 48 percent.

Cassandra McDonald observed while DeSantis made significant strides in battling the culture wars as governor, there is uncertainty among many regarding his qualifications for the presidency.

Attempting to catch up with Trump and other GOP contenders, the DeSantis campaign said it would be eying a “reboot” that involves focusing on national issues, instead of consistently using his Florida accomplishments as a template.

Kaplan suggested that Ramaswamy might have a higher potential for support. That comes despite DeSantis having a favorable rating of 59 percent among GOP voters.

Ramaswamy, on the other hand, is less well-known among Republican voters, with a 27 percent “uncertain” rate.

Trump Remains in the Lead in Nearly Every 2024 GOP Primary Poll

Despite the popularity of other candidates, the poll highlights Trump’s support within the GOP. As Kaplan speculates, Trump maintains a strong combined favorability rating of 69 percent, leaving little room for doubt or uncertainty.

In the rankings, Trump, Ramaswamy, and DeSantis lead the pack, with Tim Scott, Chris Christie, and Mike Pence following closely behind at five percent each.

Nikki Haley trails with three percent support, while Asa Hutchinson only garnered one percent. North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum received no support in this poll.
