A Civiqs poll found that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' poll numbers have dropped to an all-time low among likely voters. In December he was registering at 46 percent favorability, but as of June, he is now hovering at 34 percent.
Among likely voters from the poll, in December there was a one-point difference between favorable and unfavorable responses, but that gap has grown to 22 in June.
The survey was taken by over 43,000 likely voters in the upcoming 2024 presidential election. Broken down by party, Democrats viewed him with a favorability rating of 3 percent, independents at 33 percent, and Republicans at 73 percent favorability.
Of the other candidates in the pack of several Republican primary nominees, former President Trump is the leader with many others, including DeSantis, running behind the former president as the likely nominee. According to 538, the latest polls calculated give Trump a favorability rating of 55.8 percent and an unfavourability rating of 39.9 percent.
The drop in DeSantis’ favorability comes shortly after his announced run, entering the race in May.
Despite the recent polls, DeSantis has said that he will “beat Biden handily in the swing states” compared to what Trump will be able to do in a general election.
After an NBC poll pointed out his drop in polls just a few days ago, DeSantis told NBC that, “at the end of the day, you know, this is a marathon, not a sprint.” He later said that the team is “doing everything we need to do in these early states” and has confidence going into the primary.
Earlier today, Trump posted an article on his Truth Social account that shows his favorability ratings have increased since his indictment, according to polls. The writeup claimed the increase in ratings is a “cry for justice” from the American people in response to the ongoing investigation.
Trump and DeSantis aside, candidates in the race for the Republican nomination are not even receiving 10 percent support, according to current poll averages from FiveThirtyEight.
