According to a recent survey, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is not the top candidate for the majority of Republican voters. But wait a minute! This may actually be beneficial to his campaign. 51 percent of conservatives support Trump, according to the survey, making him the apparent front-runner. However, when it comes to the second candidate, DeSantis wins with an astounding 24 percent of the vote. Trump receives only eight percent.

Now, you may be wondering: who wishes to be people's second-best option? Here's the issue, though. As primary candidates begin to withdraw from the race, their supporters are likely to endorse DeSantis. This will provide him with a substantial boost and place him in a stronger position to challenge Trump. Consequently, while DeSantis may not be the frontrunner at the moment, he could become the frontrunner as the race narrows.
But there's more. Four indictments loom over Trump's campaign, and who knows what may transpire? If he ends up facing prison time prior to the conclusion of the primaries, his supporters may have to resort to their second choice, DeSantis. Again, we cannot predict the precise outcome, but this is something to keep in mind.
Don't write off DeSantis just yet. Despite the fact that Trump may be in the lead, anything can alter in an instant during the primary season. Who knows, perhaps DeSantis will astonish everyone and become the Republican nominee. Lenny Kravitz sang, "It Ain't Over Until It's Over."
