Ron DeSantis looks unlikely to become the GOP nominee for the 2024 Presidential Election. According to polling data published by the New York Times, he would receive 17% of total votes cast if the election for the Republican presidential nominee was held today.

Donald Trump would receive 54% of total votes cast if the election for the Republican presidential nominee was held today. According to The New York Times, no other candidate currently running to become the GOP nominee has topped 3% support in the poll:

"Former Vice President Mike Pence, the former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley and Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina each scored 3 percent support. Chris Christie, the former New Jersey governor, and Vivek Ramaswamy, an entrepreneur, each received support from just 2 percent of those polled."

It's also worth noting that Ron DeSantis' odds of winning the GOP primary have decreased, per Newsweek. Donald Trump is currently the favorite to win the GOP primary, followed by Vivek Ramaswamy in second place, and Ron DeSantis in third.

Some Republicans, however, believes the Florida Governor still has a shot of winning the GOP primary. "We need leaders with high standards who are not afraid to make tough decisions when things don't go according to plan," said Giancarlo Sopo. "One can only hope Governor DeSantis brings this same level of accountability to our bloated federal bureaucracy."

"People know that I’m the biggest threat," said Ron DeSantis in an interview with Fox News. "So we view it as positive feedback. We’ll be ready to do what we need to do to deliver our message, but we absolutely expect that, and we’ll be ready for it."
