While Donald Trump remains the only politician to have officially announced his plans for 2024 thus far, there has been no shortage of speculation as to just what the potential field of candidates could look like.
For the Democrats, it seems increasingly likely that Joe Biden might run for office again, with reports of those within his inner circle being rather excited about the possibility – even if the Democratic Party as a whole is a little less enthused.
For the Republicans, however, there is a bit of a waiting game going on, with many members of the GOP seemingly preparing to launch their own bids just as soon as the saga surrounding Donald Trump’s legal and political challenges comes to a close. One of these lawmakers is Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who appears to have what it take to beat Joe Biden in the 2024 election according to a new poll.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) leads President Joe Biden in a nationwide head-to-head matchup, a USA TODAY/Suffolk University survey released this week found.
When matched up against the popular Florida governor, who defeated Biden ally Rep. Charlie Crist (D-FL) by roughly 1.5 million votes in the last election, Biden falls short.Trending:
In that scenario, DeSantis leads with 47 percent support, followed by Biden with 43 percent support. Further, 65 percent of Republicans and GOP-leaning voters want DeSantis to run for president.
As for The Don…
Former President Donald Trump fails to perform as well against Biden in this particular survey, as Biden leads him by seven percent — 47 percent to 40 percent. The survey also shows Republicans preferring DeSantis over Trump by 23 percent.
The news will certainly irk Trump, who has already been heavily feuding with DeSantis.
