A shock poll sent Ron DeSantis a message he never expected to hear

Oct 25, 2022

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is emerging as one of the national leaders of the Republican Party.

DeSantis has had one of the fastest rises to national prominence of any elected official in years.

And this shock poll sent Ron DeSantis a message he never expected to hear.

Other than Donald Trump, no Republican has done more to shape the Party’s agenda and message than Governor Ron DeSantis.

Over the last two years, DeSantis set the tone on the Right by taking up the fights conservatives wanted on COVID lockdowns and school closures, vaccine mandates, and pushing back on woke corporations.

DeSantis’ ability to pick – and most importantly win – all the right fights is leading Republicans to want DeSantis to exert a greater influence over the direction of the Party’s future.

A new ABC/IPSOS poll found that 72 percent of Republicans want DeSantis to play a greater role in charting the direction of the GOP – that number even topped the 64 percent who said the same of President Trump.

The Washington Examiner reports:

More Republicans believe Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis should have a “great deal” of influence over the party compared to former President Donald Trump, highlighting a seeming shift in loyalty ahead of the 2024 presidential election.

About 72% of Republican voters say DeSantis should have a great deal or good amount of influence over the party’s direction compared to 64% who said the same about Trump, according to a recent ABC News/Ipsos poll.

Trump and DeSantis being the two most popular Republicans on this question is not surprising.

Polls show DeSantis and Trump are the two leading frontrunners for the 2024 GOP nomination.

No other Republican even comes close to Trump and DeSantis.

DeSantis is seen by many Republicans as the heir to the populist conservative movement that Donald Trump brought to the Republican Party.

In a Florida Governor’s debate, DeSantis noticeably did not rule out the possibility of running for President in 2024 by declining to commit to serving a full four-year term if he wins re-election.

Should DeSantis run for President in two years, that would set up a direct confrontation with Donald Trump.

And GOP voters would have a firsthand opportunity to decide between the two men the base wants to have the largest say on the Party’s future.
