DENVER (FLV) – At a Colorado conservative political conference in Denver, Gov. Ron DeSantis polled higher than Former President Donald Trump in a hypothetical 2024 presidential run.
The poll asked Western Conservative Summit attendees who they approved of clinching the Republican nomination for president in 2024. 71% approved of DeSantis will Trump finished with 67%.
Attendees were able to select more than one candidate.
DeSantis won the same straw poll last year in Colorado, finishing at 74% approval while Trump garnered 71%.
Neither figure has declared candidacy for 2024, but Trump and DeSantis have large campaign war chests.
In April, DeSantis broke $100 million in campaign donations for his re-election bid, who is sailing to November’s midterm elections and is likely to face Democrat U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist. Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried is trailing Crist in polls and fundraising.
