Donald Trump has been the top figure in Republican politics since his infamous escalator ride in 2015.
But how long Donald Trump’s reign lasts is up in the air.
And this 2024 Presidential straw poll is the last thing Donald Trump wants.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis rose to popularity by keeping Florida open during most of the pandemic and opposing authoritarian mask mandates
Now he is wildly popular among Republican voters in America.
DeSantis’s star in the Republican Party has only brightened under the Fake News Media’s constant attacks.
And his refusal to back down has led to Republicans listing DeSantis in polls as one of the top choices for the GOP nominee if Trump chooses not to run in 2024.
But even though DeSantis is wildly popular, those same polls show Trump would be the overwhelming favorite if he enters the race in 2024.
However, in an approval poll among the attendees of the 2021 Western Conservative Summit, for the first time Ron DeSantis actually topped President Trump in the approval poll.
Western Conservative Summit 2021 non-partisan approval voting poll results:
1. Ron DeSantis – 74.12%
2. Donald Trump – 71.43%
3. Ted Cruz – 42.86%
4. Mike Pompeo – 39.35%
5. Tim Scott 35.58%
30 candidates polled. Democrats & Republicans.

Should Donald Trump run for President in 2024, most folks believe DeSantis will not run against him because of the close relationship between the two.
But if Trump chooses not to run, there’s no doubt that Ron DeSantis would enter the field as the frontrunner for the GOP nomination.
