Trump Lead in Early Primary States Leaving DeSantis Campaign Drained

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis' presidential campaign is facing internal challenges, as revealed by a reported remark from pollster and advisor Ryan Tyson, who allegedly said their job is now to "make the patient comfortable."

The campaign has experienced a decline in polls, dropping from 35 to 12 percent with the Iowa caucus approaching.

DeSantis' campaign immediately dismissed concerns, labeling it a "media hit job." However, insiders close to the campaign disclosed ongoing turmoil, including conflicts within the Never Back Down Super PAC that supports DeSantis.

The resignation of strategist Jeff Roe and previous upheavals within the campaign team have raised questions about the governor's management style.

Critics argue that DeSantis's preference for working with his Florida associates over experienced campaign professionals may have contributed to the challenges.

Super PACs, designed to maintain distance from candidates, faced internal strife, with allegations of confrontations and resignations.

The campaign's technical glitches during its launch in May and subsequent negative advertising targeted at DeSantis have added to the hurdles.

Despite attempts to reorganize with a new super PAC called Fight Right, it struggles to attract substantial donations.

Professionals rejected by DeSantis have reportedly joined Trump's campaign, utilizing their insights into the governor's vulnerabilities.

DeSantis's decline in polls, internal conflicts, and challenges in fundraising highlight the complexities of navigating the competitive presidential race, especially against a former president.

The campaign's resilience and ability to address internal issues will be crucial in determining its success as the Iowa caucus approaches. DeSantis needs a miracle in the first state but so far seems to have little hope of seeing his presidential hopes materialize in 2024.
