From Statista: DeSantis Catches up to Trump: In a new joint survey from Politico and Morning Consult, Trump has the support of 47 percent of potential Republican primary voters. Backers of DeSantis made up 33 percent in the survey that was conducted between November 10 and 14, up from 18 percent before the midterms and only 8 percent in May of last year. Trump’s Vice President Mike Pence was the third-most popular among Republican primary voters, but is far behind at just 5 percent of respondents naming him as their pick most recently. Neither DeSantis nor Pence have announced a presidential campaign.
