According to a Yahoo News/YouGov poll of 1,520 adults, Trump’s lead over DeSantis increased by eight points, giving him a commanding 28-point advantage. While DeSantis’s support dropped from 28 percent to 25 percent, only 13 percent of respondents had an unfavorable impression of his botched campaign launch, Your Content has learned.

Nonetheless, these poll results present a challenge for the DeSantis campaign, which aims to promote his electability over Trump. Despite this setback, political analysts suggest that DeSantis still has a chance to secure the Republican nomination.

During his visit to South Carolina, DeSantis will hold three events and his Never Back Down super PAC plans to increase its activities in the state. The campaign also has several endorsements in the pipeline.

Although DeSantis trails by 15 points in Iowa and 33 points in New Hampshire, there is hope as nearly half of Trump supporters consider DeSantis as their second choice. Notably, many Trump supporters view DeSantis as a strong candidate, and he outperforms Trump on key issues in New Hampshire, including electability, competence, and opposition to “woke values.”

In response, Trump expressed confidence that DeSantis would soon fade into obscurity, while DeSantis countered by emphasizing that Trump already had his chance to address the nation’s problems.

The rivalry between the two candidates was evident as they exchanged jabs during their respective campaign stops. Trump dismissed DeSantis’s argument of a potential two-term presidency, asserting that waiting for eight years is unnecessary when he could undo President Biden’s policies in just six months.

Despite the setbacks, the race for the Republican nomination remains open, with DeSantis aiming to overcome the challenges and win over voters in the early primary states,‘according to FLIPBOARD.
