Trump v DeSantis: Republicans Divided in 2024 Predict ‘Blood on the Floor’.

Terri Burl was an early member of Women for Trump. As chair of the Northern Wisconsin Republican Party branch, she campaigned vigorously for his election twice in key contested states. When Trump left office, Bee rated him the greatest president since Ronald Reagan. Maybe it’s better, but now Burl has had enough. She fears the possibility of Trump announcing another presidential run, as he is expected to do on Tuesday evening in Florida. Burl predicts that if she fights right-wing Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for the Republican nomination and loses the 2024 election if the former U.S. president is the nominee, “there will be a lot of blood on the floor.” Choose to run in 2024. it is a given. But I want them to go through the primaries and I hope it’s not Trump. He has too much baggage now. We need new blood because it’s pretty obvious that he can’t be in business now without him doing something that pisses people off. His behavior hasn’t changed,” she said. Substitute teacher Burl isn’t alone. The Republicans’ failure to deliver the promised “red wave” on midterms has dealt a blow to Trump’s insistence that his voice be heard. It’s not just because of the defeat of the party’s voters, especially the major candidates he backed, but the support from the grassroots that gave him a tight grip on the Republican Party over the years and cornered his antagonistic leadership has been eroding for months. The promotion of election conspiracy theories, the investigation into his business and political behavior, his attack on his most threatening challenger, DeSantis, and, above all, Trump is much better now than he was two years ago, when he lost to Joe Biden by more than 7 million votes and was unable to win.

Had he kept his mouth shut and stopped spreading these conspiracy theories, he could probably have been president again with Biden’s interim regime,” he said. It was a lot of independents, a lot of first-time voters, a lot of ordinary people. Since then, many who have been Republican voters for the first time will not be enthused about Trump this time around, as he did not gracefully choose an exit. Shaffer said he has faith in the electoral system and that Biden won the election legally. ffer would like to see another candidate challenge Trump for the Republican nomination. “I’m honestly a huge fan of Governor DeSantis and have been for several months since this last campaign. fresh face. He said he has the same kind of agenda as Trump, without all the baggage. But Shaffer doubts Trump can be defeated. “If Trump runs, I am 99% sure he will get the nomination. I know how caucuses and primaries work. There doesn’t have to be that many people showing up and he has a very loyal and devoted following,” said Shaffer. “It would be cruel to go back and forth with only these two guys left. There will be a lot of blood on the floor,” she said. In a YouGov poll immediately after the midterm elections, DeSantis had a seven-point lead over Trump among Republican primary voters, including independents. This is a change from a month before the election, when Trump had a 10-point lead. But among “strong Republicans,” Trump maintains a narrow lead. Republican Florida Gov.

On other social media forums, some of his supporters say he is a “proven fighter” who can engage the public in a way that no other politician can. Others say it’s time to “ditch Trump.” “I love what DJT has done for America. But…could he ever get elected?” one of his supporters asked. After endorsing weak candidates, his judgment was questioned – the last straw for anyone. mistake. I don’t think the bass will like it. I don’t think that would be good for the party,” and Burl said he was “shocked” by the former president’s attack on DeSantis. Then he said that if DeSantis tried to turn against him he would have some filth on DeSantis. Burl said that while some Republicans saw Trump as their own man, DeSantis was concerned that there were too many brilliant politicians making decisions based on what they thought would sit well with voters. .“Some people say he doesn’t trust DeSantis because he thinks DeSantis will pass over to the vested interests. I am not established. I don’t like establishment candidates. “I like people like Trump,” he said. “Right now, some people might see Desantis as a vested interest, but I think he’s coming out as his type of Republican and doesn’t want to quarrel with all the vested interests.” Republicans do what they say. And what if Trump is the candidate? Shaffer said he would still campaign for the former president, but he didn’t like the prospect. “If Trump wins the nomination, it will be much more difficult for him this time than in 2020. We’ll have to work. Very hard, much harder than 2016 or 2 [ago],” he said.
