Like President Donald Trump, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis keeps winning, and according to a straw poll of 500 surveyed at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver, Colorado,  Gov. DeSantis beats President Trump 74.12% to 71.43.

The last time conservatives voted for a 2024 presidential candidate was in Orlando, Florida at the 2021 CPAC annual event, where DeSantis scored a second-place finish behind Trump.

DeSantis can’t do anything wrong, and even as Democrats try to saddle him with the blame for all the COVID-19 related deaths in the state, DeSantis’ overall approval rating is above 50%.

Trump has already said he would be considering a run for re-election, fueling the speculation that he could tap DeSantis to be his running mate.

But as Republicans appear to see DeSantis as their viable Plan B option, the more he does for Florida, and the more he stands up to Progressives and Socialists alike, Republicans could very well start viewing DeSantis as their first choice and not Trump.

DeSantis legislative victories and campaign promises kept when he ran in 2018, have all but made him untouchable

DeSantis is expected to announce his reelection bid next month and has already said it was too early to think about 2024.

Florida Democrats have had DeSantis locked onto their sights, as both Rep. Charlie Crist and AG Commissioner Nikki Fried are using whatever they can to try to gain traction against the popular DeSantis.
