Any wonder why ‘The Donald ‘ is looking to ‘annouce’ this soon?
The ex-President’s political juice among ‘his party ‘ people keeps sliding downward …..
And the fight between him and DeSantis IS out in the open….
IA-Pres, NH-Pres, FL-Pres & GA-Pres: The Club for Growth is out with four new polls of four early GOP primary states, Iowa, New Hampshire, Florida & Georgia and finds Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) beating Trump in all 4 states. DeSantis leads Trump by a 48% to 37% margin in Iowa, a 52% to 37% margin in New Hampshire, a 56% to 30% margin in Florida and a 55% to 35% margin in Georgia.
