CNN is out with a piece which throws this out….
They see the Biden White House as going after the Florida Governor, who IS pursuing a strategy of running against almost EVERYTHING Biden….
It would appear they have a point….
But it would also appear that Ron DeSantis isn’t such dumby….
While Donald Trump goes after his fellow party members to get them to locked into his view of things ….
The CNN point of view would seem address something Donald Trump doesn’t care about….
A growing numbers Republican Senator’s are feed up with Trump’s feud with the party members…
They want the Republican party’s focus to move from Jan 6 and Trump to doing EXACTLY what Ron DeSantis is doing….
Get under Joe Biden’s skin…..
Drawing the Democrat Presidentn out into political back and forth’s….
Chris Cillizza, points out…..
Helps DeSantis’s poll numbers go up…..

Well yeah but I like this “…the current occupant of the White House who is DEEPLY UNPOPULAR (emphasis added )within the GOP…”
Uh that has nothing to do with Joe Biden himself.Such would apply to any Democrat who was President be their name Warren ,Pelosi or hell, Manchin.
So,in essence this article says that any Republican who takes on a Democratic President will be popular among the “base.”
Gee I’m glad they told us that!
Talk about filling up space in your newspaper!
But in taking the bait could Biden be actually HURTING Democrats in the fall?
Or is he attacks calculated to try to drive up the Democratic base?
Cillizzza does have to write everyday….
But there HAS to Democrats thinking about Biden driving up DeSantis base coming out in November for his re-election and being baked in for the 2024 primary….
Someone IS gonna tell Bidden to ‘cool it’ I’d bet….

I think this whole thing is simplistic to the nth degree.
I don’t think “base” Republican voters are either more likely nor less likely to support DeSantis because of something Biden says.They are going to vote for DeSantis because they are Republicans.
There’s no real way to quantify this kind of thing anyway.
Yeah Cilliza has to write some so he wrote this.
Republicans are gonna vote Republican and Democrat are gonna vote for Democrat.
Once again, gee glad he told us that!
