(FeaturedNews.com) – On Monday, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) avoided a question about polling for the 2024 presidential race during an official trip to Japan. DeSantis has not yet announced what his intentions for 2024 are, and he has not officially launched a bid for the White House. Despite this, he is doing very well in the 2024 GOP primary hypothetical polls.
DeSantis is considered to be the top possible contender and top challenger to former President Donald Trump in a potential 2024 GOP primary match. While in the past few weeks he has made some moves that make it appear as if he is preparing to launch a campaign, he has not yet put forth a final announcement. Earlier this year, he had disclosed that he would not be making a decision for 2024 until after Florida’s legislative session ended in May.
However, while DeSantis was performing well in polls a few months back, recent polls have shown that his popularity has dropped and that Trump is seems to be increasing his lead.
On Monday, DeSantis met with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida as part of a four-country trip that would take him from Japan to South Korea, Israel, and then the United Kingdom. According to a report from Reuters, this trip is focused on increasing DeSantis’ international profile. He has recently also had numerous visits across the U.S. as part of his book tour, and he even met with congressional Republicans in D.C. earlier this month.
