Trump and DeSantis are the dueling banjo’s in the GOP bid for the White House in 2024. Despite other contenders throwing their hats into the ring, Trump vs. DeSantis remains a point of interest. As the days whittle down, more and more polls will be released showing where these two- dueling banjo’s stand. Who will come out on top?
The Hill reports:
Former President Trump leads Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) by 15 points among GOP primary voters in a hypothetical 2024 matchup, new polling from Fox News shows.
The survey released on Sunday found Trump, who launched his reelection campaign back in November, in the lead among potential Republican primary challengers with 43 percent. DeSantis, who hasn’t formally announced he’ll run, followed with 28 percent.
The Fox News poll put Trump and DeSantis at the top of a possible GOP primary pack of 15 potential contenders. Trump’s former United Nations ambassador, Nikki Haley, who kicked off her 2024 campaign earlier this month, was 21 points behind DeSantis, with just 7 percent saying they’d like to see her win the GOP presidential nomination.
Though not many have yet to announce their bid for the GOP 2024 White House, it is expected to become a crowded field. Will Trump continue to top DeSantis? Or will the polls flip and show DeSantis over Trump? We have a long way to go until the 2024 election, but the time will go fast. Every day matters for these candidates before the first GOP debate with the RNC in August.
