Palpatine Murdoch Has Sads After Post Debate Poll Shows DeSantis Collapsing From 24% To 13%
Rupert Murdoch has big sad as his Wall Street Journal outlet admits their poll looks terrible for Ron DeSantis. Currently, with only 13% support, DeSantis’s position has collapsed since April, when WSJ showed 24% backed him.
Additionally, Chris Christie and Mike Pence are the two candidates with the highest unfavorable rating by republican voters, -73% and -63% respectively. Respondents show their opinion worsening, mostly due to Christie and Pence position against front-runner Donald Trump.
It looks like the Wall Street and RNC Big Club donors are now eyeing Nikki “test the wind” Haley, as the best option to try to stop Godzilla Trump. This shift likely explains why DeSantis campaign operative Jeff Roe was begging donors for another $50 million last week, as discovered in leaked audio from meetings with them during the highbrow events in Wisconsin.
Wall Street Journal – […] At 13% support, DeSantis’s position has collapsed since April, when 24% backed him in a slightly different field of candidates tested by the Journal.
GOP primary voters believe businessman Vivek Ramaswamy and former Gov. Nikki Haley of South Carolina, far more than any other candidates, exceeded expectations in the televised Aug. 23 GOP debate among eight of Trump’s rivals. But those impressions so far haven’t turned into significant ballot support, with Haley the first choice of 8% and Ramaswamy at 5%.
Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina, who has cast himself as an affable warrior for conservative causes, has made little headway after three months of campaigning, drawing 2% support.
Republicans nationally are rejecting the candidates who most sharply criticize Trump: Former Govs. Chris Christie of New Jersey and Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas drew 3% and 1% support, respectively. Christie is the most unpopular GOP candidate tested, with 73% holding an unfavorable view of him.
The image of former Vice President Mike Pence, who turned aside Trump’s request to block Congress from certifying the 2020 vote, has tarnished among primary voters. In April, 54% viewed him favorably. Now, 30% view him favorably, and 63% have an unfavorable view. He’s the choice of 2% for the party nomination.
“DeSantis collapsed,” said Bocian. “The one candidate who back in April really seemed to be a potential contender, seemed to have a narrative to tell, has totally collapsed, and those votes went to Trump.”
Watch Noem. 👀 Originally, the Sea Island group had a DeSantis/Noem ticket as their best outcome. Noem now looks to be positioning herself as the 2024 Mike Pence VP option. Remember, whoever is VP in 2024 will likely be the nominee in 2028. The Big Club always plays the long game.
Stay strategic in outlook.
McConnell will not last. South Dakota Senator John Thune will replace him. Thune and Noem, compatriots from South Dakota, would have a Koch inspired nudge-nudge/wink-wink outlook to undermine Trump policy agenda 2025 through 2029.
What Cozying Up Looks Like
Accept things as they are, not as we would wish them to be. This is a generational battle. We didn’t get into this mess in one election cycle, and we are not going to get ourselves out of this mess in one election cycle.
