A poll released just ahead of Thanksgiving show voters favoring Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) over former President Donald Trump as the pair careen toward a possible 2024 presidential showdown.

Trump became the first top-tier candidate to announce his 2024 candidacy on Nov. 15, but DeSantis has seen a major popularity surge since his landslide reelection victory on Nov.

YouGov's poll surveyed 1,500 people through online solicitation between Nov. 19-22. The findings have a 3-point margin of error.

Meanwhile, a Quinnipiac University poll published Monday showed 6 in 10 people viewing Trump's latest campaign as a "bad thing." Furthermore, 43% of respondents said they preferred DeSantis win the Republican nomination over Trump, while Republicans are evenly split at 44% on supporting either candidate in 2024.

DeSantis has also outpaced Trump in a number of key early voting states, according to data collected by WPA Intelligence and Club for Growth.

In Iowa, DeSantis leads Trump by 11 points, a complete 180 compared to findings published in August. DeSantis also leads Trump in a primary matchup 52-37 in New Hampshire, 55-35 in Georgia, and 56-30 in Florida.

With Trump being the only GOP candidate to declare a 2024 bid so far, he remains the odds-on favorite to secure the Republican presidential nomination. Trump has consistently done well in polling of just GOP voters in a possible head-to-head matchup, but DeSantis has made strides.

A Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll survey on Monday showed Trump maintaining a double-digit lead over DeSantis in a hypothetical primary, but DeSantis had shortened Trump's edge by 11 points since the summer.

"Month after month DeSantis has been rising and now he is cutting significantly into Trump," Mark Penn, the co-director of the survey, said of the polls findings. "If they both run, this will be quite a race and Trump could well lose."

Trump holds an even larger lead over DeSantis in the latest Emerson College poll, which showed the former president besting his top rival by 30 points and both Republicans losing to presumptive Democratic nominee President Joe Biden in the general election.

“For all [Republicans in name only], Never Trumpers, Radical Left Democrats and, of course, the Fake News Media, please enjoy this latest poll from highly respected Emerson College," Trump said in a statement Tuesday responding to the Emerson poll. "I’m sure you will be thrilled!"

‘The White Lotus’ Star Theo James Says His Character Would ‘F*ck Anything and Everything’

Next News:

Jaire Alexander personally texted Bears WR apology for calling him ‘a scrub’

Jaire Alexander personally texted Bears WR an apology.

It was one more chapter of the storied rivalry between the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears this past weekend, and one that included yet another personal jab for the second straight season.

Last year, it was quarterback Aaron Rodgers shouting into the Soldier Field stands, “I still own you!”

This year, again at Soldier Field, Packers cornerback Jaire Alexander took aim at a former teammate of his, Bears wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown.

After the game, Alexander was asked about the 56-yard catch he gave up while covering St. Brown early in the game. Alexander responded with a few choice words, including the phrase, “he a scrub.”

Since the response from Alexander after the game, the Packers cornerback has apparently tried to rectify things with St. Brown.

Jaire Alexander owned up to a mistake he made when emotions were running high, and his former teammate didn’t take it personally

Bears WR Equanimeous St. Brown said Packers CB Jaire Alexander texted him to apologize for his postgame comments, which included calling St. Brown "a scrub." "It was probably heat of the moment for him," St. Brown said. "I don’t take anything personal. It is what it is."

St. Brown seemed to brush off Alexander’s comments, taking the high road. Although, a dig like that has to hurt a bit, especially coming from a former teammate.

Both Alexander and St. Brown were drafted by the Packers back in 2018, with Alexander going on to earn a long-term extension with Green Bay and St. Brown being a forgotten man.

He has since tried revitalizing his career in a Bears offense that has passed the ball far less than any team in football this season. But, St. Brown did earn the trust and respect of Justin Fields early on in training camp.

Speaking of Fields, Alexander did get the chance to pick off the former Ohio State standout once on Sunday — one of two interceptions Fields tossed. That Alexander interception just so happened to be on a route in which St. Brown appeared to have run incorrectly, as stated by Fields after the game.

Alexander and the Packers are now right back in the thick of the NFC playoff picture, fighting for a spot following the victory over Chicago. Meanwhile, the Bears are locked into the number two overall pick in next year’s draft.

For now, Alexander (and Rodgers) still have the last laugh, having beaten the Bears in both matchups this season.
