Ron DeSantis Still Top Pick by Republicans for Trump’s Vice President Pick

On multiple occasions, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis emphasized that he has no interest in the role of Vice President for a potential second term of Donald Trump, but a new poll finds that 41% of Republicans and 40% of Independents who lean Republican support Gov. DeSantis as being Trump’s VP pick for 2024.

The Economist/YouGov poll also found that 27% of the same crowd support Florida U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio as the VP pick.

Other topics the voters were polled about.:

2024 Presidential Election:

Neither candidate came close to 50 percent, and the result is a tie, with Trump and Biden both at 42% and the remaining undecided or considering a third-party candidate.

Trump’s Hush Money Trial Conviction: Those numbers have barely changed, with 51% of Americans, including 89% of Democrats and 12% of Republicans, strongly or somewhat approving of the guilty verdict in Trump’s hush-money trial.

Rigged Trial: 49% said they do not believe Trump’s hush money trial was rigged, while 38% believe it was.
