POLL: DeSantis gains ground with conservatives over Trump for 2024 nominee

November 14, 2022

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has been gaining ground with conservatives over Trump for the 2024 presidential nomination.

"While 'strong Republicans' favor Trump, voters who 'lean toward the Republican party' overwhelmingly favor DeSantis," reported JustTheNews.

"While 35% of Republicans and Republican-leaners want Trump to run in 2024, 42% said they wanted DeSantis to run, according to a Yahoo News/YouGov poll released Saturday. Even among those classified as 'strong Republicans,' Trump is two points ahead of DeSantis for 2024 at 45% to 43%," added JustTheNews.

"Voters who 'lean toward the Republican party' overwhelmingly favor DeSantis over Trump at 45% for DeSantis and 21% for Trump," JustTheNews reported on the poll.

"The survey also showed that a plurality of Democrats was surprised by how many seats their party won in the midterm elections as 32% of Democrats said they won more seats than expected," reported the outlet.

"While the survey was being conducted, Trump attacked DeSantis in a series of posts on Truth Social, calling him 'Ron DeSanctimonious' and an 'AVERAGE Governor,' among other things," reported JustTheNews.

"I also fixed his campaign, which had completely fallen apart," Trump's TRUTH Social rant added. "I was all in for Ron, and he beat Gillum, but after the Race, when votes were being stolen by the corrupt Election process in Broward County, and Ron was going down ten thousand votes a day, along with now-Senator Rick Scott, I sent in the FBI and the U.S. Attorneys, and the ballot theft immediately ended, just prior to them running out of the votes necessary to win. I stopped his Election from being stolen."
