Ron DeSantis hits new low in Montana presidential polling

'They love President Trump.'

Republicans in the Big Sky State are coming up small for Ron DeSantis, with a new poll of the state’s Republicans showing him poorly positioned to take the state’s 31 delegates in next June’s GOP Presidential Primary.

The Fabrizio, Lee, and Associates survey of 600 likely voters shows the Florida Governor with just 12% support, 52 points behind former President Donald Trump.

“They love President Trump,” the pollsters write, noting the more than 5-to-1 advantage over DeSantis.

Other candidates are even further back, including third place Nikki Haley, who has 7% support. No one else has more than 3%.

Polling is scarce from Montana, but the general trend suggests voters there aren’t warming to DeSantis as the presidential campaign cycle continues.

An August survey from J.L. Partners showed DeSantis with 15% support, 37 points behind Trump’s 52%.

Public Policy Polling survey showed Trump with 46% support and DeSantis with 23% in a survey of 510 likely Republican Primary voters conducted on June 19 and 20.

    “Coming up small for DeSantis” pretty well sums up his campaign theme.

    Good evening Patriots,
    Those of you “upper level” Patriots who have been wisely following the “Sage” wisdom of me, Earl Pitts American, know I’ve brokered the 52% which Trump carries with the 15% DeSantis carries together.
    Thats correct 100% America, once Trump makes his announcement, DeSantis will March right into The White House with a Nation-Wide 67% MANDATE of our Great Patriots votes.
    Once the confused Ramaswamy/Haley supporters realize what just happened 1/2 of them will do the typically predictable shift (it’s human nature). So 3.5 from Hailey + 1.5 from Ramaswamy = an additional 5% which will go to DeSantis.
    67% +5% = a full 72% casting their Patriot votes for DeSantis.
    Proff Positive the math don’t lie America 🇺🇸
    This sage political peek into our Great Nation’s future has been brought to you courtesy of me, Earl Pitts American, America 🇺🇸 America 🇺🇸 America 🇺🇸
    Happy Veterans Day my beloved Patriots!!!
    Tonight we all relax our Sphincter’s and sleep the sleep of Kings and Queens in Heavenly ✌ ✌ ✌ ✌ Peace.
    Thank you America 🇺🇸
    Earl Pitts “Now You Know” American
    In closing, America, have any of the other “So Called” Political Advisors provided you with EVEN ONE FREE BUMPER STICKER????

      Dr. Pitts I have ran your numbers through our European super computers which all are super powered by AI and not only do your numbers all check out but the AI aspect is fully in agreement of your explanation of the DeSantis landslide sweep of The White House.
      Maybe after America’s election is over and everything settels down I will take a 2 month sabbatical to tour your Nation. As a sideline we have seen some of your bumper stickers on cars here in Berlin. Sir you are somewhat of a cult celebrity over here.

      God’s speed Dr. Pitts don’t let the $hitters win

    I guess the cowboy boots just aren’t cutting it in the real cowboy country. Sad.

    NewsFart out of Montana: Poll of GOP voters there reveals 12% of them are idiots, 64% of them are morons.
    The rest are still trying to distinguish their elbows from their asses. And those are the smart ones.
