Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has taken the lead over former president Donald Trump in a poll of likely Republican primary voters in the state of Florida.

The poll from Suffolk University/USA Today found that “Trump’s support among Republican voters in Florida for another presidential bid has significantly eroded this year,” and that DeSantis now leads him by 8 percentage points – 48% to 40% in a hypothetical 2024 primary matchup.

The results of this new poll mark a 15-point swing from January, when Trump led DeSantis in Florida 47% to 40%.

“This doesn’t necessarily mean DeSantis would lead in any other GOP primary state,” noted David Paleologos, the director of the Suffolk University Political Research Center. “But it is one data point suggesting a shift in preferences from GOP voters away from Trump and toward DeSantis from Republicans who know both potential combatants quite well.”

  1. Yes, DeSantis clearly wins this week’s MAGA chazir of the week award. He cruelly used asylum seekers as political props, so he is now the new MAGA hero. Stay tuned perhaps next week, Trump can do or say something mean and vicious and be the new MAGA chazir of the week poll leader.

  2. Asylum seekers? They didnt come seeking asylum. They snuck in through the desert illegally. Texas doesnt want to bear the burden of these illegals taking over their state. Maybe we drop them in your backyard.

  3. Kach / Yochy:

    Facts don’t care about your feelings. These people were asylum seekers and we’re legally allowed to remain in the US pending their hearings. They were not illegal.

    DeSantis misappropriated Florida tax payer funds to transport out of state asylum seekers for political gain.

    Sadly MAGA folks like cruelty and DeSantis knows that folks like Kach and Yochy will blindly follow him without ever bothering to ascertain the facts.

    The rest of America sees DeSantis for the authortarian threat that he is. Texas Sheriff is suing him as is State Senator Jason Pizzo. Hopefully the true illegal is held accountable.

  4. Many of the MAGA folk on this site do “invite illegals into their house” as cleaning help, baby nurses, handyman work etc. The MAGA folk are a bunch of hypocrites who like to scream and yell and spread hate of others.
