Polling Trend Solidifying – Trump Over 60%, DeSantis Dropping Well Behind Ramaswamy
Written By Sundance of The Conservative Treehouse
This is the fifth in a row of recent polls showing the complete collapse of Ron DeSantis. Fortunately, there may be no further reason to discuss his election viability, and it may be well worth just waiting for his campaign withdrawal announcement.
As CTH suspected, DeSantis has followed a similar path as former Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. Both candidates were driven by the financing of billionaire donors behind them. A campaign created around the shell of a candidate – devoid of personal intent or internal purpose for running, while being driven only by shallow self-interest and attached to the policy of the funding mechanism – is always a structure for failure.
Daily Signal – With support from 60% of Republican primary voters, Trump commands a 47-point advantage over his nearest competitor in Scott Rasmussen’s latest national survey. The poll from RMG Research Inc. was in the field Aug. 11-14, before news of Trump’s indictment in Fulton County, Georgia. The margin of error for the full sample is +/- 3.1 percentage points. Entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, who tallied 13%, made the biggest gains over the past two months, rising from 3% in Rasmussen’s June 21-22 poll. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is third in the new poll with 8%, dropping 7 percentage points since Rasmussen’s Aug. 7-8 survey.
DeSantis never had the skills to be a strong presidential candidate. Additionally, he’s not that smart, and once the surrounding facade started to fall away, people saw the real person, the weakness, not the carefully fabricated image his handlers tried to create over the prior 3 years.
The most unfortunate outcome is not that DeSantis is failing, it’s that speaking from a position of freedom and liberty, Florida was a better place prior to his election in 2018. While he managed the COVID-19 pandemic reasonably well, the state he governed has been messed up by DeSantis’ total control of the state legislature just to give him the illusion of social policy ‘wins’. I don’t like the thought of what comes next in the big gov takeover using the tools he created. It’s a hot mess.
