Only 24% say DeSantis’ 2024 launch went pretty well or very well

Less than a quarter of Americans think the launch of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ (right) virtual presidential campaign went “fairly well” or “very well”, according to a poll.

Instead of a traditional campaign rally announcement, DeSantis opted for a virtual campaign launch in the form of a Twitter Spaces chat with Twitter CEO Elon Musk. However, DeSantis’ launch was plagued with technical difficulties, leading to many people mocking his announcement, including Republican frontrunner former President Donald Trump.

As Breitbart News reported:

The Twitter Spaces call, which is scheduled to launch at 6:00 p.m. EST, began several minutes late as an unidentified voice whispered that it was “quiet.” David Sacks, the entrepreneur who organizes the event, started introducing Elon Musk and claimed it was “historic” before the audio cut. From then on, the audio continued to be interrupted several times, with continuous echoes and seemingly random voices – not the voice of the Governor, who the conversation was about.

An Economist/YouGov poll taken days after DeSantis’ launch found that only 24% of voters consider the launch a success. Specifically, 17% think the launch went “fairly well” and only 7% say it went “very well”.

On the other hand, 45% of Americans think the launch of the campaign went somewhat or very badly, with 24% saying “somewhat badly” and 21% saying “very badly”.

An additional 31% of respondents did not know how to rate DeSantis’ campaign launch.

The poll also found that more Americans would rather Trump become the Republican presidential nominee than DeSantis. Trump received 29% support among all respondents, compared to 21% for DeSantis.

However, Trump’s lead expands considerably when looking at Republican responses.

Among Republicans polled, 52% would prefer to see Trump become the nominee, while 27% want DeSantis to qualify for the general election.

More Americans also believe Trump has a better chance of winning the 2024 general election, with 39% to DeSantis’ 24%. However, 37% did not know who had the best chance of winning the general election.

The Economist/YouGov surveyed 1,500 adult US citizens between May 27 and May 31. The survey’s margin of error is ±2.9%.
