In 2024, will it be Ron DeSantis or Donald Trump?

TRUTH PUKE’S TAKE: In November, former President Donald Trump declared his intention to run for the Republican nomination in the 2024 presidential election.

Between 2017 and early 2021, President Trump is eligible for another term in office.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has not yet declared his candidacy, despite emerging as Trump’s primary rival in polls according to recent surveys conducted in various capacities by Politico or Morning Consult.

Trump does not enjoy the incumbent privilege, but his time in the White House has given him a loyal base of supporters.

Statista’s Katharina Bucholz points out that, following his overwhelming reelection victory, Trump began to rise in the polls as a possible presidential candidate – setting him apart from other Republicans.

According to a survey conducted in February by CRS, 48 percent of potential Republican primary voters supported Trump as of February. DeSantis supporters made up 30% of respondents – an increase from 18% before the midterms and only 8% in May last year; however, this number decreased slightly from 33 percent after November’s midterm elections.

Vice President Mike Pence was third in popularity among Republican primary voters, but still far behind with only 7 percent choosing him as their presidential choice.

Pence has yet to declare his presidential candidacy, similar to DeSantis who has yet to declare.
