Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was one of the big Republican winners from the Midterm election.
DeSantis’ nearly 20-point win established him as a star on the rise.
And these shocking new polls had Ron DeSantis grinning from ear to ear.
The big stories coming out of the Midterms were DeSantis turning the perennial swing state of Florida into a ruby red bastion where Democrats can no longer compete and some conservatives blaming Donald Trump for the dismal showing nationwide.
Trump endorsed a slate of candidates in gubernatorial, Senate and Secretary of State races that largely fell short with only two out of 18 emerging victorious.
Conservative discontent with Trump and fascination with DeSantis manifested itself in polls recently taken by the Club for Growth and the Texas Republican Party.
Club for Growth’s polls showed DeSantis leading Trump by double digits in Iowa, New Hampshire, Florida, and Georgia.
A Club for Growth poll shows Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis leading former President Donald Trump in several key states.
Conducted between November 11-13 after the midterm election, the poll surveyed voters in New Hampshire, Iowa, Georgia, and Florida to discover that Ron DeSantis now leads Donald Trump in all four.
In Iowa, DeSantis has gained 11 points since August while Trump has fallen 15 points (48 percent to 37 percent). In New Hampshire, DeSantis has climbed seven points, while Trump has fallen eight points since August (52 percent to 37 percent). DeSantis also leads Trump by 26 points in his home state of Florida (56 percent to 30 percent) while leading him by 20 points in Georgia (55 percent to 35 percent).
The Texas Republican Party’s poll found a 31-point swing towards DeSantis from the survey the party took on October 23.
Breitbart also reports:
A CWS Research poll for the Texas GOP also found that DeSantis leads Trump by 11 points (43 percent to 32 percent). The same poll released on October 23 showed Trump leading DeSantis by nearly 20 points (46 percent to 29 percent).
None of this is to say that Trump is finished or that DeSantis is guaranteed to win the 2024 GOP nomination.
But what this polling data does show is that if Ron DeSantis runs for President in 2024 he starts the race in the front-runner position alongside Donald Trump.
