Political reshuffle: Vivek Ramaswamy gains ground as Ron DeSantis numbers plummet! |

  • Post category:news

Republican candidate Vivek Ramaswamy is now within easy reach of Ron DeSantis, whose poll numbers are falling so rapidly. Every day is a new low for DeSantis.

The second-place GOP contender is no longer comfortably in second place at 26%, as he was in March, when he was far ahead of the pack that trailed (and still trails) favorite Donald Trump. Instead, according to The Hill, DeSantis still trails the rest of the pack with just 16% support to Ramaswamy’s 10%. Trump is currently leading with 49%.

As former President Trump leads the pack in the GOP presidential primary, biotech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy is closing the gap with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

This week, Ramaswamy was in third place with 10% of the vote, DeSantis was in second with 16% and Trump was first with 49%, according to a poll by Echelon Insights.

Ramaswamy has risen two percentage points since a comparable poll was taken in May, when the biotech entrepreneur received 8% of the vote. DeSantis, meanwhile, has seen his support drop 3 points since the May poll, when it was at 19%.

Since the launch of DeSantis’ campaign due to a problematic event on Twitter Spaces in May, some Republicans have expressed doubts about his viability as a candidate.

After his campaign released a video last week criticizing Trump’s past support of the LGBTQ community, the Florida governor recently drew the ire of the GOP LGBT group Log Cabin Republicans as well as other party members.

Between June 26 and June 29, the Echelon Insights poll polled 1,020 voters in the likely electorate. Plus or minus 3.9 percentage points is the margin of error.
