New polling is not good for former President Donald Trump.
His support in early voting Iowa is starting to fade as he continues to focus on DeSantis rather than the real issues and Joe Biden.
Trump has lost almost a third of his support since the last poll.
In 2016, Trump had the perfect narrative… we are going to bring America back and shut down the border.
Americans were tired of the Obama apology tour as well as immigration going out of control.
Trump never evolved, though, and now his obsession with Ron DeSantis is starting to grow thin on voters.
To that point, the latest Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa Poll released on Friday found that Trump’s support among Iowa voters has fallen from 69 percent to 47 percent, reports the DesMoines Register.
In terms of voting for Trump if he were the nominee, he still has a firm hold on the state, poling at 74 percent, but that has also slipped from 84 percent last June.
The poll suggests that DeSantis would do well if he runs, coming in at 74 percent approval, and most of the voters are not truly familiar with DeSantis yet. But that is going to change soon as DeSantis is hitting up the early voting states in coming weeks to familiarize himself with the voters, repots The Hill.
This is being done under the guise of a governor’s tour, but make no mistake about it, this is DeSantis testing the waters while not officially declaring. He knows the moment he commits to the race, he has to resign as governor and that is not something he wants to do just yet.
If you follow this all on social media, Trump is starting to come off as childish and petty when it comes to DeSantis, and voters are not receiving it well.
He just put out another video yesterday that actually complimented a Democrat governor, with Trump’s overall point being that DeSantis is running a state that is on autopilot. Voters are noticing that DeSantis has not even announced yet.
The fact he is going after a fellow Republican so hard like this is just not sitting well, so whoever is advising Trump would do well to get him off this track before his entire campaign implodes.
