As of September 2021, Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida, was considered a potential candidate for the 2024 presidential election. He had gained popularity among conservatives for his policies and approach to governance, particularly his response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This has allowed him to build a strong base of supporters in national Republican politics.
However, it’s important to note that the political landscape can change significantly over time. Various factors, such as the emergence of new candidates, evolving public opinion, and unforeseen events, can influence the dynamics of an election. Therefore, it is challenging to make accurate predictions about an election that is still several years away. Latest opinion pools suggest most republican voters continue to favor Donald Trump.
