Shocking Poll Shows State of Potential DeSantis v. Trump Race

This could be a rather interesting contest.

Any minute now, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis will be entering the 2024 presidential race, at least if all of the behind-the-scenes activity is to be believed.

In fact, the Sunshine State lawmaker released a trailer this week for a longform video to be dropped at a later date, that is almost certainly going to be his announcement.

When he does enter the race, he’ll almost certainly surpass former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley’s polling numbers, effectively creating a two-man race between himself and former President Trump.

But would it be close?

Former President Donald Trump leads Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) in a hypothetical head-to-head Republican primary match-up after a 12-point swing his way in only three weeks, according to a poll.

The Yahoo/YouGov poll released Tuesday shows 47 percent of Republicans would vote for Trump in the head-to-head primary with DeSantis. The Florida governor sits eight points behind with 39 percent of support and 13 percent undecided.


In a YouGov poll conducted between February 2-6, DeSantis led Trump at 45 percent to 41 percent, respectively. The change marks a net 12-point swing to Trump in 21 days, as the current survey is from February 23-27.

What about the rest of the decided and undecided crowd?

Currently, four percent of respondents back former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, who announced her candidacy several weeks ago, while three percent support former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Former Vice President Mike Pence sits in fifth place at two percent support, followed by former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) at one percent. No other candidate offered secured one percent.

Of course, once DeSantis inevitably enters the race the gloves will come off, and Trump will be fully committed to moving the needle in his direction.
