Poll Taken After Debate Shows DeSantis as Clear Winner

Following the fourth Republican Party presidential primary debate, a new 538/Washington Post/Ipsos survey revealed that the majority of respondents thought Florida Governor Ron DeSantis “performed best” in the debate.

Alongside former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, DeSantis occupied the center of the platform, with former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and pharmaceutical executive Vivek Ramaswamy on the ends.

After seeing the Alabama NewsNation debate, thirty percent of viewers said DeSantis did the greatest job, followed by Haley (twenty-three percent), Christie (19%), and Ramaswamy (16%).

DeSantis received 7% of the vote, followed by Haley (9%), Christie (31%), and Ramaswamy (37%).

Of those who took the stage, 56% of voters said they would consider voting for DeSantis over any other candidate. Donald Trump, the former president, who did not take part, was given 61%.

Megyn Kelly, the moderator of the debate, declared on Thursday that she believed DeSantis had won and Haley, who has risen to third place in the polls, had lost.
