DeSantis remained in second place for the GOP primaries of 2024. Various polls also showed that DeSantis was preferred by Independents over Trump. DeSantis also did better than Trump against Biden in battleground states. He has resisted mainstream media narratives that his campaign is waning. He says he doesn’t care about polls, and that he’s playing the long game.
“I think I’ve shown that I can beat the Democrats in the voting booth, yes. By winning Florida by a historic margin. He said that he had won in every area, including the ESG and illegal immigration. ”
“On issue after issue, we didn’t just talk the talk, we walk the walk,” he continued. “And so I’ll run. I’ll beat Biden, but I think even more importantly than that, I will deliver on all these things, because if we don’t actually deliver, then I think we’re going to end up being in a hole it’s going to be very difficult to dig out of. So I think I’m the guy that can get all of that done. And I think I have a responsibility to offer myself, given that that’s where I’m coming from.”
