Ron DeSantis under 20% in another 2024 GOP Primary poll

Desantis Iowa
The Governor will have ground to make up when he becomes an active candidate.

Yet another poll of Republicans’ presidential preferences finds Florida’s Governor below 20% nationally.

A survey from I&I/Tipp Insights shows Ron DeSantis pulling 17% support, 6 points below the 23% he mustered in April.

Former President Donald Trump commands 55% support, up from the 47% he had in April, giving him a 38-point lead.

The online poll consulted 469 Republicans and those leaning Republican, with a margin of error of +/-5 percentage points.

While 17% is a low-water mark with this pollster, DeSantis has been lower still in other surveys of the 2024 field.

A survey of 436 likely GOP Primary voters conducted April 24-27 by McLaughlin and Associates shows DeSantis mustering just 16% in a crowded field, with Trump drawing 52% support.

An Emerson College poll in the field in late April had DeSantis 46 points behind Trump, with DeSantis also pulling in 16%.

These polls diverge from the FiveThirtyEight average of polls, which shows a Trump trend in aggregate. The former President leads DeSantis 52% to 22% on average, with Mike Pence at 6% and Nikki Haley at 4%.

Trump has offered commentary on DeSantis’ poll numbers as recently as Sunday, mocking the Governor’s name, as is his tendency.

“Rob DeSanctimonious and his poll numbers are dropping like a rock — I would almost be inclined to say, these are record ‘falls.’ The question: Is ‘Rob’ just young, inexperienced and naive or, more troubling, is he a fool who has no idea what he is doing. We already have one of those in office, we don’t need another one,” he posted to Truth Social.

    Rhonda’s taxpayer funded world campaigncation is working! It’s not working as he intended, but it’s working the only way it could possibly work. As he becomes less unknown, he is getting less popular as the unknown Trump alternative within the GOP. He should just sit in Florida and keep his mouth shut and hope Trump gets some real indictments and convictions that make him ineligible under section 3 of the 14th amendment. Trump becoming ineligible constitutionally, that is Ron’s only path to DC. Look it up. There’s other Amendments, beyond the 2A, and most are much more important than the 2A unless you’re of of the folks getting richer and richer selling guns & ammo or level 3 trauma ER surgeries for repairing non-fatal gunshots

    Turns out even most Republicans aren’t extremist white supremacists and bigots.

    Outstanding work, Mike. I applaud your efforts since I currently make more than $36,000 every month from just one straightforward web business. Even though these are the most fundamental internet operations tasks, you may start bs-13 making a respectable online income with as little as $29,000.

    Replacement in progress as Whiny Ronny and the other white ‘supremacists’ are crushed like cigarette butts (anyone remember cigarettes?)
