2024 ELECTION/POLLS/RON DESANTIS: “Former President Donald Trump has opened up a 36% lead on Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in a new 2024 Republican presidential poll even as he fends off growing legal problems.

The survey puts Trump’s support at 58% of GOP voters compared to just 22% for DeSantis, who has faded badly in recent months.

Republican voters are rallying behind Trump as he battles a historic indictment tied to hush money payments made to porn star Stormy Daniels and a civil rape trial over allegations by writer E. Jean Carroll.”
