Ron DeSantis Leading Donald Trump In 2024 US Election Odds
Betting sites believe Ron DeSantis is the most likely candidate to win the 2024 US election, with Donald Trump and Joe Biden now languishing behind the Florida Governor.
DeSantis is seeking to secure the Republican nomination to run against Biden in 2024.
He has already captured the loyalty of a large number of GOP backers who don’t want a repeat of Trump’s four years in the White House between 2016 and 2020.
But DeSantis risks rousing the beast that is Trump’s MAGA machine, and waging a mud-slinging war with the best in the business.
Trump is already firing barbs at the Florida Governor and there’s likely to be more to come when the pair face off during the Republican primaries.
Yet while DeSantis certainly doesn’t have the media profile of either Trump or Biden, he is making big gains in the polls.
A recent conservative survey found the 44-year-old would beat Biden in a one-on-one battle for the White House, while Trump would lose to the Democrat.
And his popularity has not gone unnoticed, with UK bookmakers steadily narrowing their odds on DeSantis being president come Inauguration Day in January 2025.
In fact, they installed him as favourite to win in 2024 shortly after the US midterm election results, which saw a swathe of Trump-backed Republicans fail to get seats in Congress.
