Trump holds just three-point lead over DeSantis among Florida Republicans in new poll

March 18, 2023

Former President Trump is leading Florida Gov. In a hypothetical nine-way Republican primary, Trump comes out as the top vote-getter, notching 47 percent support among GOP voters in Florida. Still, he’s actively preparing for a White House bid and is expected to make a final decision after the Florida state legislature wraps up its annual session in May. Biden’s approval, meanwhile, stands at just 40 percent, with nearly 53 percent of Florida voters disapproving of his performance in the White House. The Emerson College poll surveyed 1,153 registered Florida voters from March 13-15.
