In a hypothetical race between Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Biden, there is a near tie. The Republican hopeful takes 41 percent to Biden’s 40 percent.
Trump remains the frontrunner, by a wide margin, in the Republican primary race.
This poll had 12 percent support for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and ten percent support for Vivek Ramaswamy. Other recent polls had them tied for second place, as the businessman continues to rise and the governor continues to drop in popularity.
Breitbart News noted, “DeSantis also holds a minor two-point advantage in a hypothetical matchup against Vice President Kamala Harris, with 41 percent support to Harris’s 39 percent. However, Trump’s lead increases to 47 percent over Harris’s 40 percent.”
The survey was conducted online from July 19-20, 2023, among 2,068 registered voters.
