The numbers are in and the Democrats are stunned.
According to Breitbart News, “Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and former Vice President Mike Pence are tied for ‘second choice’ in a hypothetical 2024 Republican matchup, a survey from GOP pollster Tony Fabrizio found.”
Former President Donald Trump is still firmly in the lead position among speculative Republican contenders.
The breakdown after that is where it gets interesting:
Voters were separately asked to choose their “second choice” to vote for in the Republican Primary for president. The results showed both DeSantis and Pence tied, garnering 22 percent support each. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) came in third with 19 percent. No other candidate, which included former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo (R), Haley, Gov. Kristi Noem (R-SD), Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO), Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL), Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT), Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), Gov. Larry Hogan (R), and former Gov. Chris Christie (R), saw double-digit support.
“No question at this juncture that President Trump would dominate the 2024 field with no potential challenger even breaking onto double digits,” according to Politico.
