Keep in mind that this is his home state, but ANYWHERE a current Republican takes the lead over Donald Trump in a 2024 Republican Primary poll is big news.
Gov. Ron DeSantis is winning in Florida, according to a new survey.
Not only is he leading Trump, but he's also winning by a MASSIVE amount.
There's a 31% gap between the two men in a head-to-head matchup according to Republican primary voters in Florida.
Voters were asked to choose between the two men, and the winner was clear. DeSantis collected 59% support, compared to just 28% for Trump.
Keep in mind that Trump considers Florida his home state as well, even though he ran as a candidate out of New York in 2016.
Trump doesn't take losing lightly, even in a place where DeSantis should have homefield advantage.
Only time will tell how Trump and his team interpret and act on these results, or if the survey influences DeSantis to declare a run for president.
