Joe Biden dominates Ron DeSantis within the ballot in early 2024

A nationwide poll conducted this week suggests that Gov. Ron DeSantis would have a surge if challenged President Joe Biden in 2024.

the Emerson College A poll of 1,200 registered voters showed that 48% of those elected would support Biden’s re-election, while only 36% would vote DeSantis.

Florida’s governor fared worse than the former president Donald Trump in a hypothetical head-to-head race with Biden. Trump won that 47% vs 46%, even though only 395 Republicans were polled versus 450 Democrats.

However, DeSantis asked better than Mitt Romneywho only got 23% compared to 42% for Biden.

DeSantis’ poor performance against the president, regardless of his “Trumpet” nature, even comes when the Democrats polled seem less than enthusiastic about Biden.

Only 60% of Democratic respondents would like Biden to run for re-election in 2024. A whopping 39% would prefer a different candidate, although the data did not examine who those voters would prefer.

The news was more encouraging for DeSantis when it came to polling the polls’ best estimate of how Florida’s governor might fare in the 2024 Republican primaries.

With Trump in the field, DeSantis received only 10% support, a whopping 57 points behind the former president. However, should Trump not run, Republican respondents here prefer Florida’s governor to the other options.

DeSantis’ 32% put him above the former vice president Mike Pence at 24%, Sen. Ted Cruz at 13% and former Gov. Nikki Haley at 10%, the rest of the field even further back.

The Emerson College survey was conducted August 30th through September 1st. According to pollers, the data sets were weighted according to “age, education, race, party affiliation and region based on the voter participation model for 2020”.

While the governor is still well positioned as Trump’s deputy in 2024, there are a few caveats, including polls that show his style of government is fatiguing the Floridians.

One recently Quinnipiac poll suggests that 59% of Floridians don’t want DeSantis to run for president, while 35% support the concept.

Not even all Republicans want to see it. While 67% are open to President DeSantis, a full 24% are not; 61% of Independents oppose the idea, suggesting the governor’s base games may have had their price.
