Poll: Trump Sees 27-Point Swing His Way Against DeSantis Since December
Former President Donald Trump has enjoyed a 27-point swing his way away from Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) since December, according to a hypothetical head-to-head poll.
The Wall Street Journal commissioned poll – jointly conducted by Fabrizio, Lee, & Associates and Impact Research – finds that 51 percent of Republican primary voters support Trump in a hypothetical head-to-head race with DeSantis. The governor is backed by 38 percent of respondents, marking a seismic change since late last year.
In a December Fabrizio, Lee, & Associates poll, their positions were inverted, with DeSantis at 52 percent and Trump at 38 percent. The current poll mirrors a number of other national polls that show Trump surging over recent months.
Trump leads the pack in a larger primary field, as 48 percent of respondents say they would vote for him. Another 24 percent back DeSantis, making him Trump’s clear-cut top potential competitor, though he has not yet announced a White House bid.
