While it’s true that DeSantis is struggling in the polls and is finding it difficult to connect with voters on a national level, this contest is just starting to ramp up, so anything can happen.
Prominent conservative journalist Rogan O’Handley has joined the escalating “Trump or DeSantis” debate, and his rationale for siding with Trump for the 2024 run is getting a lot of attention. It’s pretty simple: according to O’Handley, while he’s a big fan of DeSantis, he wants the guy who’s got the most impeachments, indictments, and investigations under his belt for 2024.
Last night I was asked by @FLVoiceNews why I’m supporting President Trump over Gov. DeSantis

Many conservatives have no interest in returning to the status quo and would rather rally behind someone who conjures up enough ire from the bad guys to face lifelong imprisonment.
It’s one thing to get unfavorable press, but it’s quite another to be in the crosshairs of the entire Deep State apparatus as President Trump has been for almost 10 years now.
Trump has cred.
