Early Polling Shows Florida Governor DeSantis Leading Trump In Iowa Caucuses

(Washington Examiner) In the latest sign that some Republicans are eager for fresh faces in the 2024 presidential primaries, Iowa voters have done an about-face, making Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis their No. 1 pick.

In the last year, during which DeSantis became a GOP star and former President Donald Trump announced his latest bid to take back the Oval Office, the governor’s support in Iowa has hit 32%, up from 12%.


Meanwhile, Trump has gone from 56% to just 30% among Iowa Republicans asked to name their first choice for the caucuses, according to Rick Shaftan of Neighborhood Research and Media.

“With support barely half what it was a year ago in a time when DeSantis’s vote has nearly tripled, Trump becomes a severe underdog in the race,” said Shaftan’s analysis of his new survey.

The shift is especially surprising because Iowa has been a state loyal to Trump. In the 2020 race, for example, he won with 53% of the vote to President Joe Biden’s 45%.
