DeSantis, though, performed better with Republican “leaners.” A DeSantis campaign was selected by 45% of the group, compared to a Trump campaign by 21%.
Comparatively to those who said the same of Trump, 38 percent of those who identified as “not very strong Republicans” said they preferred DeSantis (31 percent).
