Mar-a-Lago Raid Pulled Potential Presidential Primary Support From DeSantis Back to Trump — By TEN Points

The FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago pulled people from supporting a presidential bid by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, back to former President Donald Trump.

According to a new Politico/Morning Consult poll conducted after the raid, Trump got a significant bump as Republicans rally around him.

Politico reports:

As for what this all means politically, it appears that Trump is benefitting from a small rally-around-the-flag effect among Republicans:

In mid-July , 53% of Republican voters and Republican-leaning independents said they would vote for Trump if the 2024 primary were being held today.

Our polling today finds Trump with 57%. The next closest candidate is Florida Gov. RON DESANTIS at 17% — down from 23% in the July poll. No other candidate breaks double digits.

The pollsters also found that less than half of the respondents, across the political spectrum, support the raid (49 percnt).

The voters were also asked, “do you think that this conducted search warrant on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort is primarily due to: Evidence that he committed a crime” or “Motivation to damage his political career.”

The poll found that 49 percent said the raid was based on “Evidence that he committed a crime” and 39 percent said that they had “Motivation to damage his political career.”

DeSantis, who is widely considered a potential challenger for the 2024 primary, has been outspoken against the raid.

“The raid of MAL is another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies against the Regime’s political opponents, while people like Hunter Biden get treated with kid gloves. Now the Regime is getting another 87k IRS agents to wield against its adversaries? Banana Republic,” DeSantis tweeted.
