Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) received just 26 percent support in the latest GOP presidential poll from Morning Consult — the lowest number he’s hit in the survey since December.
DeSantis, who has not entered the GOP primary but is expected to do so, trailed former President Trump, who won 54 percent, by 28 percentage points in the new poll published on Tuesday.
Former Vice President Mike Pence came in third with 7 percent of respondents saying they’ll support him, followed by former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, who won 4 percent.
Haley announced her presidential campaign last month, while Pence is expected to join the race.
DeSantis got some better news when respondents were asked about their second choice for president.
When asked about a hypothetical 2024 matchup between President Biden and DeSantis, 41 percent of respondents said they’ll vote for DeSantis, while 43 percent of those surveyed said they’d cast a vote for Biden.
The poll’s margin of error is 2 percentage points. »
