Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is taking the gloves off with Donald Trump.
After months of absorbing the blows, DeSantis is punching back.
And Ron DeSantis made this prediction about 2024 that made Donald Trump lose his mind.
Ahead of his 2024 presidential campaign launch announcement DeSantis spoke on a conference call with his big-money donors.
On the call DeSantis echoed a talking point spread by Paul Ryan, Karl Rove and anti-gun RINO John Cornyn in claiming that Donald Trump cannot win a general election against Joe Biden.
“You have basically three people at this point that are credible in this whole thing,” DeSantis declared. “Biden, Trump and me, and I think of those three, two have a chance to get elected president — Biden and me, based on all the data in the swing states, which is not great for the former president and probably insurmountable because people aren’t going to change their view of him.”
DeSantis argued that despite Joe Biden’s low approval rating — 41.4 percent in the Real Clear Politics polling average — Trump can’t win because Trump permanently alienated too many swing voters.
“I think the voters want to move on from Biden,” DeSantis began before adding, “They just want a vehicle they can get behind,” but “there’s just too many voters that don’t view Trump as that vehicle.”
DeSantis also swiped at Trump by citing an unnamed voter in Iowa claiming Trump is not a moral man but that DeSantis is.
“You know, Trump was somebody, we liked his policies but we didn’t like his values. And with you, we like your policies but also know that you share our values,” DeSantis concluded.
The polling data shows DeSantis falsely claimed that Donald Trump cannot win.
On Truth Social Donald Trump shared a poll from Harvard/Harris that showed him leading Biden by seven points whereas DeSantis was merely tied with Biden.
The Harvard/Harris poll showing Trump doing better against DeSantis was no one-off.
Real Clear Politics shows Trump leading Biden by 1.4 points in their polling averages and DeSantis tied with Biden.
If Donald Trump ran against Joe Biden the election would be a referendum on whose presidency Americans preferred.
That bodes well for Trump.
By Joe Biden’s own admission the world is closer to nuclear Armageddon now than at any point since the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis thanks to Biden’s reckless war with Russia over Ukraine.
Donald Trump became the first president in over 40 years not to start any new wars.
On Joe Biden’s watch the southern border devolved into chaos with more than seven million illegal aliens marching into the country.
Trump left the lowest level of illegal immigration in 45 years.
And on the economy, it looks like no contest.
An ABC/Washington Post poll showed Americans prefer Trump to Biden on the economy by a 54 to 36 percent margin.
Establishment Republicans like Ryan and Rove pushing the falsehood that Donald Trump is unelectable somehow made it into Ron DeSantis’s 2024 pitch to voters.
But the numbers show it’s not true.
