Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis is narrowing the lead over former President Donald Trump in terms of the number of his supporters as a potential candidate in the Republican Party’s 2024 presidential election.
Data from the Harvard CAPS-Harris survey was released by the publication on Monday, according to Ukrinform The hill.
Currently, Florida’s governor position in the hypothetical 2024 primaries has improved 11 points to 28% since early October.
Trump’s support fell 9 points to 46%. While Trump still has an ambiguous lead over DeSantis, the poll shows the ex-president is weakening.
Overall, 44% of voters support Trump, while nearly half – 49% – have a negative attitude towards him.
Trump announced last week that he would again seek Republican agreement to nominate him in 2024.
Although the Republican Party won a narrow majority in the House of Representatives in this month’s midterm elections, it failed to regain control of the Senate and several Trump-backed candidates have lost races.
