Enthusiasm For DeSantis Recedes Slightly After Midterm Wave

US

A YouGov/Economist report has suggested that the initial wave of enthusiasm for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL), which followed his strong performance at the US Midterm Elections, may have receded slightly.

  • Former President Donald Trump is now slightly favoured by Republican voters to take the 2024 Presidential nomination.
  • YouGov: “After announcing his 2024 candidacy last week, Donald Trump has gained in Republican assessment. This week, more Republicans say they want Trump to run in 2024 than did last week. A majority (56%) of Republicans now say he should run, up from 47% last week, just after the elections."
  • YouGov: “Last week, in the wake of an easy re-election victory by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and many criticisms of Trump for his endorsement choices, DeSantis beat Trump as Republicans' preferred GOP nominee, 46% to 39%, in a hypothetical matchup of the two current favorites. This week, Trump has an edge of 3 percentage points over DeSantis among Republicans, 45% to 42%.”
