  • The poll from Sachs Media, whose polls correctly showed DeSantis winning re-election by double digits, found that respondents “trust” DeSantis “more” than Trump to “be a good role model for young people,” 89 percent to 4 percent, “have a moral foundation for choices,” 81 percent to 12 percent, “unite voters around a common cause,” 76 percent to 19 percent, and “be respected by other world leaders,” 68 percent to 26 percent.
  • DeSantis beat Trump in every demographic that the poll measured except among Hispanic voters, as the two candidates were tied 37 percent to 37 percent.
  • The poll comes after a poll from YouGov last week found that DeSantis had gained an advantage over Trump in who Republicans wanted to see as the party’s 2024 nominee.
