Governor Ron DeSantis represents the best possible option to win the presidency in 2024 and to govern as a highly capable, patriotic populist leader.
I have worked as a dedicated spokesman and advocate for Donald Trump for much of the last seven years, so I do not arrive at that conclusion flippantly. But our America First movement has always been bigger and more important than any one individual, and heading into this crucial election, our activism and our votes must be guided by a clear-eyed assessment of recent failures and potential future successes.
Here are the three most compelling reasons to support Governor DeSantis:
1. We’ve seen this Biden-Trump movie already—and no one likes it.
Is a rematch of 2020 really the best America can do in a moment like this one?
The country is miserable. That’s not some biased or uninformed right-wing opinion, but the harsh reality revealed by data and evidence. Nearly three out of four Americans believe the country is on the wrong track, per the latest Morning Consult poll. Partisanship aside, only one in five independents believe the country is headed in the right direction.
Similarly, a recent Fox News poll revealed that 70 percent of Americans believe the economy is getting worse for their family. A demoralizing 78 percent of Americans now do not believe their children will live better lives in the future, by far the worst mark in the history of a Wall Street Journal poll that goes back decades.
Given this intense pessimism, this crisis of confidence, will a rematch of two incredibly unpopular politicians really inspire a national renewal?
The latest NBC poll finds that a whopping 70 percent of Americans do not want Biden to run for reelection. AP polling reports the exact same proportion—70 percent—do not want Donald Trump to run again, including a massive 44 percent of Republican voters.
