DeSantis Falls Into Tie With Vivek Ramaswamy

 July 23, 2023

Donald Trump is cruising, but for about six months now, the exact opposite has been happening to Ron DeSantis.

Shortly after the 2022 midterms, Ron DeSantis' stock was at an all-time high. He had just won his election in a landslide, and Florida, which had been a purple at best state for quite some time, appeared to be solidly Republican for the first time in a while.

At that same time, Donald Trump was probably as out-of-favor as he's ever been.

His midterm endorsements didn't perform as well as Donald would have preferred. Additionally, a public feud with Ron DeSantis (who, as I've mentioned, was red hot at the time) and a leaked private feud with Donald's own wife Melania appeared to place Donald lower than ever.

Then Donald Trump announced his digital trading card collection.

America laughed at Donald and the prices he was charging.

After the product sold out almost instantly, Donald Trump was the one laughing at us.

Since then, Trump's popularity has been climbing.

DeSantis' has done the exact opposite.

In fact, DeSantis is now only two points ahead of Vivek Ramaswamy, in a "virtual tie" for second place.
