Democrats spent the past two years doing everything they could to stop Donald Trump from running for President again in 2024.
Nancy Pelosi created her January 6 witch hunt committee to try and help take down Trump.
But Democrats just saw one set of numbers that catapulted Ron DeSantis to the top of their enemies list.
Before the Midterm elections, most political experts agreed that Donald Trump had a clear and easy path to the GOP nomination in 2024.
Democrats were also certain that Donald Trump would be the Party’s opponent in 2024, which is why they spent the past two years desperately trying to prevent him from running again next year.
However, that all changed when several Trump-backed candidates in key races last and Republicans failed to take back the Senate from the Democrats and barely regained the majority in the House.
Although Republicans underperformed all across the country on Election Day, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis led the GOP to a 19-point victory and turned the Sunshine State solid Red.
DeSantis’ stunning victory made him the new top contender for the Republican nomination, with many post-Midterm surveys showing him leading Donald Trump in the GOP Presidential Primary polls.
But the results of a new poll conducted by WPA Intelligence just turned Ron DeSantis into the new number-one enemy of the Democrat Party heading into the 2024 Presidential race.
In a hypothetical head-to-head matchup against Donald Trump, Joe Biden came out on top at 49% to 41%.
But the same poll showed DeSantis defeating Biden 45% to 42% in a hypothetical head-to-head matchup.
Although DeSantis led Biden in a head-to-head matchup, he fell behind both Biden and Trump in name recognition.
However, at 41%, DeSantis has a higher favorability rating than Trump (39%) and came within four points of Joe Biden (45%).
But when it comes to unfavorability, DeSantis has a much lower rating of 38% compared to Trump (60%) and Biden (55%).
The poll, taken between January 2 and January 8, was commissioned by the conservative organization Club for Growth.
“More Americans are learning about Ron DeSantis and the good he’s done as the Governor of Florida,” Club for Growth PAC President David McIntosh said. “Of the potential candidates surveyed, DeSantis has high favorability with room to grow.”
Ron DeSantis is keeping his 2024 decision a secret for now.
But if DeSantis does run, the polls show he is a serious contender for the White House next year.
