Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, a presidential candidate for 2024, has dismissed recent polling that shows him trailing both former President Donald Trump and Nikki Haley. He believes that voters have yet to make up their minds, suggesting that “none of the polls are going to matter when people start voting.”
A recent Suffolk University survey for USA Today and the Boston Globe indicated that Trump remains the frontrunner, while Haley leads DeSantis by 9 percentage points. When asked about these polls, DeSantis expressed his belief that a significant portion of the electorate is undecided.
“I think at the end of the day, a majority of people have not made a decision,” DeSantis told Fox News Digital, emphasizing that there is a substantial segment of voters who are still on the fence. He asserted that his campaign has the organization, work ethic, and message needed to secure these votes.
DeSantis also mentioned that he is willing to work with anyone, highlighting the need to shift power from D.C. politicians to the people. When asked about his preference for the next speaker of the House, he mentioned that GOP Representatives Chip Roy, Thomas Massie, or Jim Jordan could all do a good job.
If elected in 2024, DeSantis’s agenda would focus on unifying around the restoration of the American dream. He emphasized key issues such as combating inflation, achieving energy independence to lower gas prices, implementing strong border policies against cartels, restoring parental rights, and addressing rising crime rates in major cities.
DeSantis’s campaign is built on the idea of rejuvenating the American spirit and reversing the country’s decline.
As the 2024 presidential race continues to develop, DeSantis remains confident that his campaign’s groundwork and message will ultimately prevail, irrespective of current polling numbers.
