In case you're wondering how Trump is doing lately, consider this:

Trump has recently enjoyed a 30-point swing in the poll numbers for the Florida GOP nomination in 2024. Trump now leads DeSantis by 13 points in his home state.

Many people would have called you crazy had you predicted something like this around the time of 2022 midterms. Back then, DeSantis was arguably one of the hottest politicians in America, and Trump was dealing with public backlash over his feud with Melania and cheating in his own golf tournament.

It could be worse for DeSantis though. He is the closest Republican Donald Trump in the polls, and he hasn't even declared for 2024 yet. By comparison, Nikki Haley, Asa Hutchinson, Larry Elder, and Vivek Ramaswamy have all declared and are trailing Trump by even more.
