Polling never tells the whole story in political campaigns, they are just snapshot in time that give people a sense of where things stand. Polling trends, on the other hand, can show you how a race is shaping up and how candidates are faring.

A Texas based research firm (CWS Research) has polled the head-to-head matchup in the Republican Presidential Primary between Trump and DeSantis four times since December of 2022. In their first poll, Trump led DeSantis by one point, 37% to 36%, each subsequent poll got worse for Gov. DeSantis. The final poll showing former President Trump with a 51%-point lead.

This is the same polling trend we are seeing all over the country, which spells bad news for the Florida Governor.
