Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) has recorded a significant polling bounce in a hypothetical 2024 presidential election matchup with President Joe Biden, according to a new Marquette Law School poll.
- The report shows that DeSantis has strengthened against Biden by seven-percentage-points since a previous survey in November. (DeSantis: 45% (+7) - Biden: 38%)
- The report also shows that Biden is tied in a hypothetical matchup with former President Donald Trump. (Trump 40% - Joe Biden: 40%)
- Betting markets and political analysts see the story surrounding Biden's mishandling of classified documents exposing vulnerabilities in Biden's bid for a second term.
- Since the story broke, Trump has regained much of the momentum lost in the aftermath of the midterm elections and is seen by many bookmakers as slight favourite to take the GOP nomination.
