Matt Schaeffer Files Paperwork to Put Ron DeSantis on the 2024 Primary
It appears that Matt Schaeffer is trying to win brownie points with the RINO establishment by filling out the paperwork to put Ron DeSantis on the 2024 Primary.
Most are AWARE that the 45th President of the United States has been endorsed by the Governor of Texas, as well as TRUMPING his opponents in the lonestar state. So it’s curious why Schaeffer would even file when one would surmise that DeSantis doesn’t stand a chance of winning in the 2024 primary.
In a recent survey conducted by the University of Houston, 58% of likely Republican primary voters said they intend to vote for Trump. Rice University's Mark Jones is one of the authors of the report.
"Donald Trump remains extremely popular among Republican primary voters," Jones said. "Nothing that happens to him legally adversely affects his standing in their eyes. In fact, at some levels, it actually increases their esteem for him.”
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis came in second place at 14%, while former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley registered third at 6%.
"At the end of the day," Jones said, "they both are mired in either the high single digits or low teens, neither really having any possibility of victory in the Republican primary, even if everyone else were to exit."
To test that, the survey asked likely primary voters how they would vote if every other candidate besides Trump and DeSantis suspended their campaign. "We found that even if every other candidate left the race, (DeSantis) would go up to 25%, but Trump would go up to 66%," Jones said. "And we didn't test that for Haley, but I don't think it would be any different.
