"Meanwhile, a Quinnipiac University poll published Monday showed 6 in 10 people viewing Trump's latest campaign as a 'bad thing.' Furthermore, 43% of respondents said they preferred DeSantis win the Republican nomination over Trump, while Republicans are evenly split at 44% on supporting either candidate in 2024," reports Washington Examiner.
Additionally, data collected by WPA Intelligence and Club for Growth shows DeSantis has outpaced Trump in a number of key early voting states.
"In Iowa, DeSantis leads Trump by 11 points, a complete 180 compared to findings published in August. DeSantis also leads Trump in a primary matchup 52-37 in New Hampshire, 55-35 in Georgia, and 56-30 in Florida," reports Washington Examiner.
According to Washington Examiner, "With Trump being the only GOP candidate to declare a 2024 bid so far, he remains the odds-on favorite to secure the Republican presidential nomination. Trump has consistently done well in polling of just GOP voters in a possible head-to-head matchup, but DeSantis has made strides."
