shock poll shows former President Donald Trump could lose the Republican 2024 nomination for president to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
former President Donald Trump is in a virtual tie with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, according to a new poll.
Respondents to a survey by John Bolton’s SuperPAC were asked “If the next Republican primary for president in your state was held today, and the candidates were Chris Christie, Ted Cruz, Ron DeSantis, Nikki Haley, Josh Hawley, Kristi Noem, Mike Pence, Marco Rubio, Tim Scott And Donald Trump for whom would you vote?”
the poll found that Trump received 26.2 percent support, and DeSantis close behind at 25.2 percent. In a distant third place was former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie at 7.2 percent.
Trump could lose the nomination to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis if this poll turns out to be true in 2024.
John Bolton released this statement about the poll.
“These numbers will probably come as a shock to Donald Trump. After 20 years in Afghanistan, it’s clear that Americans are unhappy with leaving as we did. Voters were smart enough to see that President Trump started the withdrawal and legitimized the Taliban through negotiations. They recognize that withdrawal carries more risks for the homeland than keeping a U.S. and NATO military presence in Afghanistan. Biden bears the responsibly for the final embarrassing moments and his corresponding drop in support reflects that, but it’s not lost on anyone that Trump, like Biden, wanted to withdraw and shares the blame for the failure. National security matters to voters, especially when failure leads to greater risks, so you rightly see conservatives quickly considering options other than Donald Trump.”
