US elections 2024, the gap between Trump and DeSantis is growing according to the latest polls

In view of the Republican primaries for candidacy in the next 2024 elections in the United States, former President Donald Trump clearly detaches Florida governor Ron DeSantis. The co/efficient poll carried out for the Daily Mail says it, according to which Trump is ahead with 55% of the votes among Republican voters, 42 percentage points more than DeSantis, stuck at 13%.

The survey

The other candidates are also not doing well according to the survey. Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is on 5 percent while former US Vice President Mike Pence is relegated even further down in a handful of miscellaneous candidates who, all together, garner 9 percent. But the most relevant data is that 75% of those interviewed believe that the accusations made against Trump are an attempt to “distract” from the alleged cases of corruption involving the family of President Joe Biden. Thus confirming that the indictments suffered by the former president have not dampened his popularity.

Donald Trump: ‘Big polls’

“Big polls just out. I lead by 40, 50 and even 60 points in Iowa, New Hampshire and in South Carolina.” Donald Trump himself writes it on his social platform, Truth, commenting on the data released on the Republican primaries and concerning some states. “I drive on Biden big time. DeSanctimonious is collapsing. Maybe the party should reunite?”. The tycoon’s reference is to the governor of Florida Ron DeSantis, renamed DeSanctimonious, from the English “sanctimonious”, ie hypocrite, considered Trump’s main opponent and in great difficulty for weeks.
