Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) edges past former President Trump in a poll of likely New Hampshire Republican primary voters over their first choice for president in the upcoming 2024 election. 

The new University of New Hampshire Granite State Poll released on Wednesday found DeSantis receiving 39 percent support from likely Republican primary voters in the state compared to 37 percent for Trump.

The difference between the two is insignificant and within the poll’s margin of error, meaning they are effectively tied at the top. 

But it’s a significant rise for DeSantis in the poll. In previous polling conducted by the university, DeSantis had been trailing behind Trump, receiving 19 percent support in July 2021 and 18 percent in October 2021. Trump, in contrast, had won 47 percent and 43 percent support, respectively, in those previous polls. 

“Trump slipping in pre-primary polls is part of a typical pattern,” Director of the UNH Survey Center Andrew Smith said in a statement.

A party’s losing candidate in the prior election is typically the best-known person in their party. As the primary gets closer, new candidates emerge and attract more media attention, and therefore more voter attention, than the losing candidate from the previous election,” he added. 

Former Vice President Mike Pence received 9 percent support in the new poll, while former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley received 6 percent. Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) all received 1 percent each. 

It would of course be much better if Trump ever had to face real consequences, and if Republicans actually cared about morality and the rule of law.   But, in the absence of that, it will at least be some consolation to watch Trump get dumped and then lash out at his fans for “betraying” him.

They may not care about anything except winning and owning the libs, but deep down they know Trump lost (and lost them Congress), is damaged goods, and is not as likely to win in 2024 as someone like Desantis who doesn’t have the loser stench on him.  Trump will keep bitching about 2020 instead of moving on, because he’s a malignant narcissist and can’t handle it.  That won’t help him.  The worst thing for a shallow celebrity troll candidate to be is a bore who rehashes his own failures instead of giving the dopamine hits to the crowd.

And by 2024 he will get a taste of his own medicine when it comes to transactional relationships and being dumped by the wayside when you’re no longer useful.  

I just hope Desantis is a garden variety American politician in terms of corruption and abusing power, and not a would be dictator.  Trump voters / Republicans are clearly primed to accept a real deal authoritarian at this point, and Desantis could actually capitalize on it ways Trump couldn’t.  Trump is craven enough to do anything, but also largely incompetent enough to fail at anything.

lol tell me you haven’t been paying attention to Florida without saying you haven’t been paying attention to Florida.

DeSantis is a smarter, more calculating, and more capable Trump.

One way or the other, there will be a widely celebrated holiday related to Trump.  Either this dystopian nightmare continues, in which case Presidents’ Day will be moved to his birthday.  Or the world comes to its senses, and the day he dies will be celebrated every year.

If there is any karma he will choke on a big mac on 9/11 and that can be the day his cult celebrates.  Oh, and this 9/11/22 would be perfect

 

equally as nice would be a stroke while driving his golf cart and going off a bridge into a creek.

The crazy thing about that is that those are the same people cheering against the bully when they see it on screen.  There is a huge lack of self awareness in this country.  It manifests in 100's of ways, like the assholes that camp out in the left lane, or that get through the door of the business and stop strategically to block everyone from coming in behind them so they can check their phone, or the assholes that walk 6 abreast and take up the entire walkway on sidewalks and in airports while they go for a sunday stroll when people are trying to make their connections, or they cheer against the fictional bullies but support the real ones.  WTF.

As a parent, watching how middle school band works I’m pretty sure that classifies as a cult.  Imagine the “Inception” levels of Aggy band (a cult within the cult) and then the whole senior boots, dunking a ring or bonfire groups.

Insert Ray Wylie Hubbard snake farm ewwww.gif here.

High School Marching Bands definitely use cult-like techniques.

“That fucking wop”

I said when he sold the D.C. grift hotel that dotard wasn’t going to run again.  Now DeSantis is racking up serious cred with the rubes but dotard says nothing?  Yeah, he ain’t running. 

I just hope his pal Vlad realizes he is no longer useful and sends a GRU wet ops team over to do “Vlad stuff”.

So where will the Q/oathkeeper/proud boy crowds go in this upcoming war between the orange man and dumb DeSantis.

DeSantis.  He fought Washington during COVID, fought masks, kept Florida open as much as possible, is fighting Disney, etc.

And DeSantis is not a loser like Trump.

This is a fantastic observation and post. It captures the thread of utter selfishness and lack of empathy running through society that is killing us.

I can't believe we had a president named "Donald" that everyone thought was a tough guy.

And now they are going to vote for a dude named "Ron."

That's the name of your divorced mom's six-month boyfriend in 1991. I give Reagan a pass because he was born in 1911.

Seriously it sounds like the opposite of my family here.  They think that because I know Trump is one of the most vile people on the planet that I love Biden.  There are only a handful of people alive I would not have voted for against Trump in 2020.  They don't get that I look at Trump like OU, if Boise St is playing OU I root for Boise St but that does not make me a Boise St fan just that I hate OU.  All this time they are like the Penn State fans that once an R always an R no matter what Joe Pa did.

There are some people posting on here that they don't vote for Trump but they are not Dems but yall are busting their balls.  Take the win graciously that there is another person out there that won't vote for Trump.  Maybe they'll eventually get to voting against Abbott, Patrick, and that cock-eyed mutherfucker whose name I don't remember at this moment. Extend that to any souless bastard that promotes the big lie or failed to impeach the fat bastard.

Nurture the sprouts, don't stomp them out because it's not a tree yet.

It’s fucking annoying. They think my absolute hatred of everything GQP makes me an ultra liberal socialist. I was fucking made fun of for wearing a mask and getting vaccinated by some old baseball friends of mine. Like wtf!?!? Do they make fun of people for getting chemo and radiation? Or is cancer only for pussy libtards?

Fuck that. If I can’t have both, fucking give me prison for DOTARD. It would be the ultimate “fuck you” hammer in all future discussions about that POS.

It would also martyr him and galvanize his supporters.  Losing to another Republican might just neuter him and them, or at least have them turn their wrath inside the party.

Yes, we certainly don't want to see his supporters getting galvanized.

Jail the motherfucker and maybe these idiots will storm the Bastille to free him. Only this time, we have the Claymores and professional soldiers in place.

That's what Trende thinks will happen - Trump loses the nomination (he's already behind DeSantis - take that Zogby poll with a grain of salt) and then goes nuclear after the nominee because it's all about him. He runs a third party campaign purely out of spite and peels off the crazies and torpedoes the GOP nominee.

It’d be fascinating to see how a ballot that has trump/desantis/ Biden or trump/desantis/Harris ended up.  When given a choice that is not democrat and not trump (even if it’s trump lite) what does that split look like?  Would moderates go to desantis or Harris?
