Bookie warns Ron DeSantis 2024 support ‘starting to dry up’

Donald Trump is almost the 'odds-on favorite' among Republicans.

Gov. Ron DeSantis keeps saying he doesn’t want to be President. Bettors are starting to believe him.

DeSantis continues to struggle in the shadow of Donald Trump relative to 2024 considerations, with more bad news on that front Friday.

BoyleSports, one of the oddsmakers willing to establish probabilities for future presidential markets, warns that DeSantis’ support is “starting to dry up.”

Meanwhile, bettors have MAGA on their minds. According to Boyle, Trump has achieved parity with President Joe Biden in terms of overall odds.

“It’s all one-way traffic in the betting for 2024 and it’s Donald Trump who has the momentum after a string of media appearances. We’ve been forced to make him a joint favorite already at 7/2 from 5/1 and he’s not far from going on odds-on to be the Republican candidate contesting the election,” said a BoyleSports spokesperson.

DeSantis, meanwhile, looks more like the leader of the second tier.

“The Florida Governor has been eased to 9/2 from 7/2 to be the Republican candidate in 2024, but is still rated more likely than both Nikki Haley (8/1) and Mike Pence (10/1),” BoyleSports noted.

At least one recent national poll of registered voters suggests Pence is getting a more serious look from potential 2024 voters than was the case a few months ago. In a field without Trump, Pence was the choice of 32% of registered voters surveyed, a dozen points ahead of DeSantis in that survey.

It hasn’t all been losses for DeSantis, the man supporters call “America’s Governor.” Another oddsmaker hailed the end of the “downward trend” in DeSantis’ odds for reelection late last month.

“DeSantis’ reelection chances were on a downward trend through the summer, with his odds shifting from 1/5 in June to 1/3 in August,” says a US-Bookies spokesperson. “During that time, Rep. Charlie Crist and (Agriculture Commissioner) Nikki Fried were improving in the odds markets, indicating that it was becoming a closer race.”

For his part, DeSantis continues to say he is running for reelection and that presidential speculation is “nonsense.”

“All the speculation about me is purely manufactured,” he said in early September.

“There’s a lot of huge issues. It’s way down the road. It’s not anything that I’m planning for,” DeSantis said during the second half-hour of Sean Hannity‘s show earlier this week.

    Ron DeSantis is a racist. Full stop.
    He hates black people. Most Americans don’t like racists, and that’s why he’s being rejected.

    If you support DeSantis YOU ARE A RACIST.

      He and the rest of his Republican pals would truly love to be openly, obnoxiously, get in your face racist, but they know they couldn’t win elections if they did.

      Legislating against CRT, BLM protesters, gerrymandering, underfunding schools, and generally doing everything possible to keep the uppity ones down accomplishes their goal of preserving white privilege much better.

        I never hear Republicans talk about race, but Democrats talk about it all the time. They always put a racial spin on everything. Gancarski managed to avoid injecting race into his story, but Alex couldn’t stop himself. The truth is that more and more people of color are becoming active Republicans every day and are voting Republican. They have come to accept that the real home of the prejudiced people in America is the Democratic Party, just as the Democratic Party is showing itself to be the home of global Antisemitism. Remember, the Democrats created the KKK, the Democrats fought to disenfranchise Black Floridians (who were Republican) during and after Reconstruction, and in the modern world it is the Democrats whose view of people of color is that they can’t thrive except under the tutelage of Democrats. It is demeaning and it always has been. Just look at the photos of the Governor of Virginia and the prime minister of Canada in blackface. They AIN’T Republicans!

          I hear Republicans talk about it all the time. You forget we work around you racist liars.

          And I’ve heard the Democrat plantation lies before , and the antisemitic ones too.

          Too bad you can’t prove a single claim you just made, because they’re all lies.

          Oh, and dems started the KKK, back when they were the conservatives and republicans were liberal.

          Here’s the proof;

          Lol. I can back my claims up, you cannot.

          Republicans don’t talk race frequently, but many will practice racism. Also, the KKK defense is weak. The Democratic that you speak about were southern democrats who became Republicans over time.

        Look whose racist, Dems #1 constituency is 60% non vaccinated.

        Look whose racist. Nikki Fraud opposes first Depart of Energy African American nominee cause she wasn’t asked. Wah Amazingly, she and crispy critters oppose Florida’s surgeon general, who just happens to be extremely educated African American. Whose racist? You shameful hacks.

        Go lay on the curb both. Gross beings.

          To Tom the key member of the Florida White Taliban

          What makes you think I am a Democrat or not African American?

          I never jumped your shit until you turned into an asshole. You fucking bully behind a keyboard, you shouldn’t even be allowed into society. You do this type of shit a restaurant? Get in arguments with people you don’t know and call them dirty names and try to belittle them? Does it make you feel big? Were you picked on as a small child you fucking child? Get a life.

          As for your quip you disgusting human piece of refuse, the dear doctor surgeon general is a member of that grand organization America’s Front Line Doctors. The same organization that made $15 Million in the last few month recommending telehealth consultations and prescribing via Uber like Pharmacy delivery of ivermectin hydroxychloroquine, Zinc, and Vit-C as a Covid-19 treatment – ALL OF WHICH ARE PROVEN INEFFECTIVE. But they still pushed anti-vaccine rhetoric and this fake protocol while raking in MILLIONS. That is the truly disgusting part. So any umbridge I have for the educated African American in question here is the subscription to a protocol the majority of the health industry thinks is from cranks.

          So take your far right single party is the only party bullshit and try to sell it at the flea market, because that is all it is worth. Trying to paint it as right centrist is the true BIG LIE and you fucking know it.

          You’re more Manchurian than Mao. More Marxist than Marx. More Nazi than Hitler. More Soviet than Stalin.
          With your propaganda, lies and need to consolidate power. You don’t care about people you and your ilk just want to see your party win.

          The Republicans may be in power now, but it won’t always be that way. Eventually the pendulum will shift. Then all you will have is your bitterness and hate.

          So enjoy your White Taliban Meeting, because there’s not much different between a guy in a turban, beard and a AK and a hillbilly with a Trump Flag and a AK, both narrow mindedly screaming toxicity, hate, bullshit and lies.

          Oh, and fuck the straight off.

            Bad times for for your guys.
            Surrender at southern boarder, 2 million estimated. Per DHS 400,000 coming. 20% with disease.

            Surrender in Afghanistan. 1000’s left behind. Lies by Biden and team.

            30 yr high on inflation. Unemployment is going up. African American unemployment sky rocketing. Biden/giggles Harris causing economic despair.

            This Alzie driven POTUS still hasn’t named a FDA commish.
            Total shit show but they’ve as they’ve made America’s Governor leader in Repub. party and conservative movement.

            Biden is upside down in 38 states. Negative 13 pts in Florida.

            How inept can they be,
            A lot, Jen’ psaki.

        He simply pointed out (as I did) that Republicans are racists.

        But on planet Faux, that somehow (irrationally and illogically) means Dems are racists too.

        Nope, we aren’t like you guys in your desperate attempts to drag us down to your level.

          That’s a broad brush to paint Republicans as racists. So how is Ron DeSantis a racist? Has anyone recovered a picture of him in a yearbook with “black face”? Oh never mind that was the Democratic Governor of Virginia. You and Linwood are completely full of shit.

            Aaw poor IB, you have nothing but you still want to hit back.

            Here’s DeAnus “accidentally” being a racist 8 times;

            1. He spoke at a Muslim-bashing event alongside Milo Yiannopoulos and Steve Bannon.
            2. He called New York candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is a Puerto Rican woman, “whatever she is.”
            3. He defended a supporter who said “bring back the hanging tree.”
            4. He was moderator of a Facebook group that was a haven for racist memes and was run by lunatics.
            5. He proudly associated himself with Sebastian Gorka, who has ties to a Hungarian far-right group that collaborated with the Nazis.
            6. His career is based on immigrant-bashing, supporting Trump’s insane comments, and ratcheting up deportations.
            7. Then he made the infamous “monkey this up” comment that his supporters claim was an “accident.”
            8. The Tallahassee Democrat reports that an Idaho neo-Nazi group is now making racist, pro-DeSantis robocalls in an offensive black “minstrel” voice with jungle music playing in the background


            And I have many more.

    AG enough of making something out of nothing.
    No reason for America’s Gov to seek presidency if 45 runs again.

    Btw, update your poll. The John Bolton PAC has released a new poll, it had Gov Ron essentially tied at 26% and 25% respectively with 45.
