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.8.

A YouGov national poll published Wednesday showed DeSantis earning much higher approval ratings than Trump among all voters and independents. DeSantis has a net positive favorable rating overall among those polled, whereas Trump's approval rating is underwater.

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!"More from Midterms

Warriors Taking Longer Than Other Teams, Miss Crucial Pieces: Sources
Getty The Golden State Warriors' bench.
After a rough start to the season, the Golden State Warriors have finally turned things around. They are now 13-11 on the season, which puts them in sixth place in the Eastern Conference standings – just inside of the playoff picture.
However, their losses from this past offseason have come back to bite them. According to sources who spoke to Sean Deveney of Heavy Sports, Golden State has struggled to put together a competent bench unit, and they “miss” Gary Payton II, Otto Porter Jr., and Nemanja Bjelica.
“It has taken them longer to get their bench together than it has most teams, and they had a lot of change from one year to the next – they miss Porter, they miss Bjelica, and they miss Payton most of all,” a Western Conference executive told Deveney.
Warriors bench is still……
DUBS ONLY UP ONE ????

All three players played a crucial part in Golden State’s championship run last year. But heading into this year, all three left for new opportunities. Payton signed with the Portland Trail Blazers, Porter signed with the Toronto Raptors, and Bjelica went to play overseas.
The Warriors signed guys like Donte DiVincenzo and JaMychal Green to replace the production, but so far, things haven’t panned out the way they had hoped.Warriors Players ‘Upset’ With Loss
A struggling bench unit is likely at the top of the team’s complaint list, but from the perspective of the players, there’s one loss, in particular, that likely stung the most – Payton.
According to sources, the players on the team were “upset” with the loss of Payton.
“If there is anything that the guys on that team, around that team, are upset with, it is letting Payton go, letting him get paid somewhere else like he did,” a Western Conference executive told Deveney. “Everyone understands that with the [luxury] tax, it was really tough to bring him back, but they could have kept him and let [Kevon] Looney walk because, in theory, it would be easier to replace a big guy.”

Payton has yet to appear in a game for the Blazers this year, as he is still recovering from offseason surgery. Last year, he played a big part of the Warriors’ title run. He appeared in 71 games, playing 17.6 minutes per contest. The guard averaged 7.1 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 0.9 assists on 61.6% shooting from the field and 35.8% shooting from behind the three-point line.Warriors ‘Worried About Everybody’ on Bench
So, as the Warriors continue to figure out what’s wrong with their bench, the starters are having to carry the load. More sources who spoke to Deveney explained that the organization is “worried about everybody” not in the starting lineup.
“The injury to [Donte] DiVincenzo has been tough for them because they were hoping to put a lot on him early in the year,” a Western Conference executive told Deveney. “The young guys have not gone into their roles the way they wanted. Right now, it is a lot more than the off-court stuff that they are worried about. They’re worried about everybody beyond that starting five.”
Until they iron out their bench problems, expect the team to consider a ton of options.
