From Washington Examiner Editor Hugo Gurdon:
- It’s Trump’s GOP rivals who are gnashing their teeth. Gov. Ron DeSantis might be more concerned than anyone, as he is still on the fence about running and his poll numbers are slipping as the afterglow fades from his 19-point landslide election win last November.
- Donors are holding back, conserving their cash to see what he does. This suggests that they, like 54% of Republican voters, would prefer someone other than Trump as the GOP nominee. But they won’t wait forever.
- If a week is a long time in politics, three months (till Florida has finished legislating) is an eternity. The calculus for DeSantis is changing fast.
