Leer en Español

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis would beat former President Donald Trump in the presidential election, according to the latest two polls released this week. The numbers are known even though DeSantis has shown no intention of running in the presidential race.

A Wall Street Journal poll released Wednesday shows that in a hypothetical contest between the two, DeSantis beats Trump 52% to 38%, among likely Republican primary voters.

“Republican primary voters have high interest in Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis as a potential 2024 presidential nominee and view him more favorably than they do former President Donald Trump,” The Wall Street Journal reported.

DeSantis, the Republican frontrunner

This is not the first poll to project DeSantis’ lead. A USA Today poll revealed Monday that the Republican governor leads Trump with 56% support to 33%, 23 points ahead.

The poll noted that should he face Biden, who has not yet officially announced if he will seek re-election, DeSantis leads him with 47% of the vote for the 2024 election.

“Republicans and independent conservatives increasingly want Trumpism without Trump,” David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk University Center for Policy Research, said in remarks published by USA Today.
