The governor of Florida would beat Trump in the Republican primaries for the White House, according to polls

The governor of the US state of Florida, Ron DeSantis, would win against former president Donald Trump in a hypothetical face-to-face in the Republican primaries for the 2024 presidential elections, according to a poll.

DeSantis, who is seen as one of Trump’s main competitors in the Republican Party primaries -although he has never made his candidacy official, as the former president has done-, would obtain 49 percent of the votes in a duel against Trump, according to a survey conducted by the Club for Growth organization and collected by ‘The Hill’.

However, with the rest of the candidates, the former president would obtain 37 percent of the support against 33 percent for DeSantis. Former Vice President Mike Pence, who has hinted at his candidacy, would get just 7 percent of the vote.

Thus, the survey – carried out on 3,015 people and with a margin of error of 1.8 percent – highlights that support for Trump and DeSantis within the party was divided between the most conservative Republicans and those who identified themselves as moderates.

In the head-to-head matchup, Trump would win with 52 percent of the vote from people who identified as very conservative. Meanwhile, DeSantis was more popular than Trump among voters who said they were somewhat conservative or moderate, securing 56 percent and 51 percent of their support, respectively.

The group in charge of conducting the poll, of a conservative nature, has maintained that the chances of Republicans to recover the White House if Trump were in charge would “diminished” again.

For this reason, he has appealed to party members to be “open to another candidate”, as detailed by the group’s president, David McIntosh, to ‘The New York Times’.

“What the club believes that the Republican Party should do is make sure that whoever we nominate really wins,” McIntosh said, recalling that DeSantis “is in the strongest position.”
