Poll: Trump would beat DeSantis in a Florida GOP primary, but DeSantis would do better against Biden

As I have said before, America now has three parties: The Progressive Democrats, the neoliberal Democrats/Never Trumpers, and the Trumpists.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) would lose to former President Donald Trump in the state’s 2024 GOP primary but would perform better than Trump in a general election matchup with President Biden, according a Suffolk University/USA TODAY network poll.

The poll found that, in a hypothetical 2024 primary matchup between the former president and the incumbent governor, Trump would beat DeSantis 47-40.

Despite the apparent gap, USA Today noted Wednesday that Trump’s lead does fall within the poll’s 7.4 percent margin of error, suggesting a “very close race.”

According to the poll, either GOP candidate would win Florida over Biden, but DeSantis would perform better.

Trump leads Biden 47-44 among Florida voters likely to vote in the 2022 gubernatorial election, while DeSantis is projected to defeat the incumbent president 52-44.

The error margin for the general election polling is only 4.4 percent, meaning Trump’s lead is within the margin of error but DeSantis’ is not.
