(Radio Iowa) The latest Des Moines Register/NBC News “Iowa Poll” shows former President Donald Trump has the support of just over half of likely Iowa Caucus-goers. Trump leads Florida Governor Ron DeSantis by 32 points and is 35 points ahead of former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley. Haley spoke to a large crowd on a farm near Waukee Sunday afternoon. Haley pointed to national polls that show her leading President Biden.
“Think about it. That means up and down for our governors, for our Senate seats, for our House seats,” Haley said, “but that means an economy that gets back on track because we have the landslide victory.”
During an appearance on Iowa Press on Iowa PBS this weekend, DeSantis said there is a clear appetite for a different GOP nominee in 2024. “I kind of think to myself: If Ronald Reagan were running for a third time, he’d be getting 90% from Republicans,” DeSantis said.
