Former President Donald Trump fares better than Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in hypothetical 2024 election races against President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
The new Harvard CAPS/Harris poll found that when in a race against Joe Biden, Trump beats him by two points at 44 percent.
When putting the president and Florida governor head to head, DeSantis ties Biden at 43 percent.
Breitbart News reports, “Trump similarly outperforms DeSantis in a potential presidential matchup against Harris, leading the Vice President by seven points at 47 percent support. Meanwhile, DeSantis only has three more percentage points of support when pitted against Harris, 42 to 39 percent.”
“If DeSantis does decide to run for president, Trump would handily defeat the Florida governor, according to Harvard’s poll. The survey of 2,212 registered voters, conducted from November 16 to November 17, found that Trump is the clear favorite in a potential GOP primary field, leading DeSantis by 18 points at 46 to 28 percent,” the report added.
Trump celebrated his poll numbers on Truth Social.
“The Polls are really strong, especially since Tuesday’s announcement, hence the appointment of a Radical Left Prosecutor, who is totally controlled by President Obama and his former A.G., Eric Holder. This is not Justice, this is just another Witch Hunt, and a very dangerous one at that! No way this Scam should be allowed to go forward!” Trump wrote.
Though the mainstream media is really pushing for a DeSantis challenge to Trump, he has not announced any intention to run at this time.
Trump announced his bid for the White House in a speech at Mar-a-Lago on November 15.
