DeSantis edging Trump among New Hampshire GOP primary voters

Many analysts are starting to think that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis will run for president even if Donald Trump does too.

According to Fox News:

A public opinion survey in New Hampshire, the state that for a century has held the first primary in presidential race, indicates that Florida Gov. Gov. Ron DeSantis has a razor-thin margin over former President Donald Trump in a hypothetical 2024 GOP primary match-up.

According to polling numbers released on Wednesday by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center, 39% of likely Republican primary voters in the Granite State would support the first-term Florida governor, with 37% backing the former president. Respondents were provided a list of potential contenders for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination, and DeSantis margin was well within the survey’s sampling error.

Former Vice President Mike Pence stood at 9% in the survey, with former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, who served as ambassador to the United Nations during the Trump administration, at 6%. The other possible Republican White House hopefuls on the list offered by the pollsters stood at one percent support, or less.

  1. The problem is if they decide to proceed,
    excuse my French… into a pissing contest.

    Trump has proven himself

    DeSantis appears very capable

    I’m glad Ronna McDaniel had a backbone, unlike her uncle, and is willing to back either candidate and not “install” a RINO!

    Tough choice for the party.

  2. that margin will grow dramatically after the mid terms…watch it happen.

    Out with the Don, in with the Ron.

    Same policies, but better image for the average consumer.

  3. My main concern is that the slime from the primaries will get recycled in October.

    Beyond that, Trump sets off the sort of alarm bells with Democrat leaners that RDS does not. If RDS is the nominee, they stay home, it’s not close, they can’t cheat. If Trump tries to pull a Grover Cleveland, the DNC will have all hands on deck, marginal Democrats will show up in droves, and it’ll be close. Not good.

    In a perfect 2024 scenario, Trump runs and wins, RDS stays put to finish his entire second term, lock in the gains, and put Florida out of play for a generation, before gearing up for his first term at 16th and Penn NW in 2028.

    If RDS leaves early, well…I’ll take “How to Waste Years of Political Capital With One Dumb Move” for 200, Ken.

    We came too close to having Andrew Gillum as our governor, and an open race would only bring out the sort of carpetbagging careerists who’ve sold their souls to the Davoisie.
