Donald Trump was red with rage when he saw the numbers out of another key GOP battleground state

Apr 28, 2023

Ron DeSantis is not even an announced candidate.

But the Florida Governor is proving to be Donald Trump’s only real competition for the nomination.

And now Ron DeSantis just pulled ahead of Trump in yet another key early GOP battleground state.

It’s been a jam-packed couple of weeks for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

Legislative victories, lasting impressions, and laudable poll numbers

In just the past couple of weeks, DeSantis has signed into law a Constitutional Carry bill, a six-week abortion ban, and once again taken on Disney.

In fact, he is beating Disney so bad, they are now filing a lawsuit against him for being too mean.

While Donald Trump and his consultants lob attacks on DeSantis over the Disney fight, it appears what the popular Florida Governor is doing is working.

DeSantis is making a lasting impression with not only Disney and Trump, but with conservative GOP voters.

At least if the latest polls are any indication.

DeSantis is now leading in the important early state of Iowa and has pulled even with Trump in New Hampshire.

No other GOP candidate or potential candidate even comes close.

And a recent poll now shows DeSantis ahead in another early state, Nevada.

DeSantis best chance to beat Biden

A new poll from Nevada shows that Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has a better chance of beating Democrat President Joe Biden in Nevada in 2024 than former GOP President Donald Trump.

The poll was conducted by the GOP polling firm Public Opinion Strategies between April 17 and April 20 and surveyed 500 Nevada voters.

The results show that in a race between DeSantis and Biden, 44 percent would vote for DeSantis, 41 percent would vote for Biden, and 10 percent were undecided.

And the poll showed that in a race between Trump and Biden, 46 percent of the respondents would vote for Biden, 45 percent said Trump, and 6 percent were undecided.

The survey’s margin of error is plus or minus 4.4 percentage points.

While that means it’s still anyone’s race to win or lose in Nevada, it is more good news for DeSantis.

When the respondents were asked which candidate, Trump or DeSantis, they would be more likely to support, DeSantis polled slightly ahead of Trump by a slim one percentage point.

The majority say they will not vote for Trump

But a majority of fifty-four percent said they would not be likely to vote for Trump, while only 46 percent said they would not be likely to vote for DeSantis.

This is very good news for DeSantis as he is preparing for what most observers believe is a run at the White House.

Sources close to the DeSantis camp say the Governor is likely to announce his bid shortly after the Florida legislature adjourns in late May.

The Nevada poll is also noteworthy because of the breakdown of party affiliation of the respondents.

Only 32 percent of the respondents were Republican, 35 percent Democrat and 28 percent independent, and 41 percent of them self-identify as moderate.

And many believe it is this moderate group of voters the GOP must win back if they are to win back the White House in 2024.

And DeSantis shows it can be done without compromising on the core conservative issues like life, guns, and opposition to the radical LGBT agenda.
