This shocking new poll had some surprising news for Donald Trump

Donald Trump is looking to run for re-election in 2024.

But he got hit with nasty curveball on that front.

And this shocking new poll had some surprising news for Donald Trump.

Since leaving office, every single poll has shown former President Donald Trump as the clear frontrunner for the Republican Presidential nomination in 2024.

President Trump typically garners close to 50% of the vote with no one else emerging as a clear threat to his spot at the top.

However, that just changed.

According to a new poll from the University of New Hampshire, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is now leading Donald Trump, 39% to 37%, in a hypothetical 2024 New Hampshire Republican Primary.

That same poll also showed Governor DeSantis is leading Joe Biden in the state of New Hampshire in a potential 2024 General Election matchup.

There is no question Governor Ron DeSantis’ star continues to rise in the Republican Party.

Many now fully expect DeSantis to launch a 2024 Presidential campaign regardless of what President Trump ultimately decides to do.

“DeSantis has been quietly building his fundraising networks while grabbing national headlines for his challenges to the Biden administration and for his focus on culture war issues,” The Washington Post reported. “Without mentioning Trump, he has told donors, “No one’s nomination is inevitable,” according to a person to whom his comments have been relayed.”

“Beating Trump’s 2020 margin of three percentage points in Florida has become a key campaign goal, according to three people familiar with the conversations,” The Post continued. “They said DeSantis’s wife, Casey, a former television host and among a small circle of confidants, wants him to run for president.”

Of course, Ron DeSantis must first win re-election in Florida this fall, but all the available polls currently show DeSantis leading his likely Democrat challengers.

Should DeSantis win in November, the talk will immediately focus on if he – or several other Republicans for that matter – will decide to run for President should Donald Trump announce a third Presidential campaign.
