Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has further eroded former President Donald Trump’s lead in 2024 presidential opinions polls – with fallout from Mar-a-Lago with KanyeWest and white supremacist Nick Fuentes showing little signs of slowing.
A Yahoo News/YouGov poll Surveys conducted December 1-5 show Trump receiving 35 percent support by Republican adults or independents leaning Republican.
DeSantis is only five points behind at 30%, an increase after his comprehensive victory in Florida Governor’s Race and Republicans blaming Trump as the reason for their disappointing midterm results.
DeSantis came in second behind Trump at 35% and DeSantis at 33% support when asked about the smaller group of registered voters.
There is no other Republican contender that comes close to Mike Pence (ex-Vice President) and the former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley polls at 5 percent.
The same poll revealed that Trump has lost some his charisma among Republicans. 54 percent of respondents viewed Trump as’very favorable’ in June. This number has dropped to 42 percent in December, 12 points below.
It is a bad sign for Trump, who announced his candidacy for President one week after the’red waves’ failed. He is still fighting legal battles.

Also, pollsters asked Republican voters what would they do if Trump-DeSantis was in the 2024 primary elections. 42 percent of the larger Republican-leaning independent adults are in agreement with DeSantis’s prediction.
DeSantis leads among registered voters with 47 percent, compared to Trump’s 42%.
Similar dynamics were observed when survey participants were asked whether it would be better for Trump to be the GOP nominee in 2024 than another GOP contentder.
The larger group voted for Trump by a narrow margin, 44 percent to 41 percent, which is well within the poll’s 2.6% margin of error.
A slight advantage is held by Trump’s option to vote for a different Republican candidate among registered voters (44% to 43%)
In a hypothetical 2024 general elections match-up, President Joe Biden holds a narrow advantage over Trump and DeSantis. This is within the survey’s margins.
Biden wins 37% support in the election against Trump, while Trump gets 35%.
A staggering 17 percent of respondents stated they would not vote.
45% would vote for Biden, and 42% would choose Trump.
DeSantis wins by 37 percent to 35 per cent.
17 percent stated they would not vote.
With 44 percent support, DeSantis is tied with Biden among registered voters.
Trump’s bid to become the 2024 White House President got off to a rough start.
The subpar performance of Republicans in the midterms was largely attributable to the former president. After a so-called “red wave”, the GOP won barely control of the House. However, Democrats retained control of both the Senate and the House.
Trump declared that he would be a White House Candidate one week later.
Then a week after that, Trump had dinner with disgraced rapper Kanye West and white nationalist Nick Fuentes.
The Trump-backed Georgia Senate hopeful Herschel Walk lost his election to Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock, on Tuesday.
The poor performance of Republicans in the midterms is largely to blame on the former president. Republicans barely won control of their House after a so called’red wave’ was expected. Democrats maintained control of the Senate.
