In this article, you will get all the information regarding Iowa favors DeSantis over Trump: Florida Governor gets 20 point BOOST with voters in crucial primary state

Republicans in Iowa say they are now more likely to vote for Ron DeSantis than Donald Trump in the 2024 presidential primary, according to a poll released Monday that shows the former president’s edge over the GOP. The grip is waning.
From November 2021 to November this year, DeSantis gained 20 points in Republican favor in Iowa for a potential White House run — while Trump lost 26 percent support in this demographic over the same period.
Iowa is the first state in the country to hold a presidential primary contest every year — and the state has generally voted for Trump in the past two presidential elections.
Too many politicians feel that a candidate’s fate for a major party nomination can be decided by how well they perform in a midwestern state.

new one Poll from Neighborhood Research & Media Shows that 32 percent of Iowa Republicans would prefer Florida Governor DeSantis to win the primary versus 30 percent who say they would vote for Trump.
A new poll shows a continued decline in Donald Trump’s influence over the GOP, with more Iowa Republican voters claiming they would favor Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in a primary over the former president.
The poll shows that Trump is down a whopping 26 percent from the same poll taken last November. Pictured: The former president last week announced another bid for the White House in 2024
The poll took place a day before and days before former President Trump announced his bid for another White House term in 2024.
The same poll from June this year showed that GOP voters in Iowa were more favorable toward Trump’s nomination than DeSantis, with a 38 percent to 17 percent split.
When the same polling was conducted a full year ago, Trump had a massive 56 percent to 12 percent lead over DeSantis.
Trump’s popularity among Republicans has declined, while DeSantis’ national presence and favorability have increased — especially in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian’s fallout and his re-election earlier this month.
While many polls over the past year still showed Trump as the leading Republican candidate for 2024, recent polling shows DeSantis moving out to the front.
Other potential candidates have also raised rhetoric about a run, shying away from floating a challenge against the former president because of his projected remaining stronghold on GOP voters that is rapidly eroding this fall.
The latest polling was conducted November 14–18 among about 400 potential Iowa caucus attendees. The difference between Trump and DeSantis, however, falls within the margin of error of plus or minus 5 percentage points.
DeSantis’ national popularity is on the rise as he moves toward being the overall GOP favorite for the 2024 presidential primary election
DeSantis switched from Republican to Democratic challenger earlier this month and won his 2022 re-election race with a landslide 19.4 percent victory over former Florida governor Charlie Crist. Nearly 1.5 million more people voted for DeSantis over Christ on November 8 in the Sunshine State.
Trump, whose permanent residence is now at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, said he voted for DeSantis in the midterms, but also turned to insulting a potential future challenger in true Trump style.
Trump called Governor Ron “Desanctimonious” at a rally just before the midterm elections.
Some are attributing Trump’s slip to the disappointing 2022 midterm elections where Republicans saw a ‘red tsunami’ as a red puddle. The fate of the Senate is up in the air, but Republicans will certainly have a majority in 2023, but by a much smaller margin than previously predicted.
Democrats lost 9 House seats in the midterm elections while Republicans gained 7. Some races are still being contested and the final division may not be known until late December.
