The Always Trumpers Abide
Politico: “Despite his difficulties since he left office, about a third of Republicans and Republican-leaning voters still consider themselves supporters more of Trump than the Republican Party, according to a recent NBC News poll. Many of them aren’t going anywhere. … Fully 28 percent of Republican primary voters are so devoted to the former president that they said they’d support him even if he ran as an independent…. Indeed, the ‘Always Trump’ component of the party is so pronounced that it’s affecting how Trump’s opponents operate around him.”
Poll: DeSantis Has Big Lead Over Trump
40% to 31%
A new WPA Intelligence poll finds Gov. Ron DeSantis ahead of Donald Trump nationally among Republican voters, 40% to 31%, even when a long line of other Republicans such as Mike Pence were included. That lead for the GOP governor jumps dramatically to 55% to 37% in a direct DeSantis-Trump matchup.
Poll: Trump Leads DeSantis Nationally
According to Political Wire, a Quinnipiac poll finds that when GOP voters are given a list of 14 names of Republicans who either have said they are running for president in 2024 or are seen as potential candidates in a Republican primary, Donald Trump receives 42% of the vote followed by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis who receives 36%.
Nikki Haley receives 5%, Mike Pence receives 4% and Mike Pompeo receives 4%. No other candidate garners more than 2% of the vote.
When the potential field is narrowed to only four candidates, however, voters are split between Trump at 43% and DeSantis at 41% — a virtual dead heat. Haley receives 6% and Pence receives 4% in this hypothetical 4-way Republican primary.

Why the GOP Will Lose the House in 2024
“The House Republican Conference will have the barest majority, rendered ungovernable by the lunatic likes of Matt Gaetz and Majorie Taylor Green. The self-sabotage of an ungovernable Republican majority will all but guarantee that Democrats take back the House in 2024.”
— Rep. Ritchie Torres (D-NY), quoted by Vanity Fair.

That’s a reversal from nearly a month ago, when a Yahoo News/YouGov poll found just 35% preferred DeSantis and 45% said they preferred Trump.
Cruz Bruised by Boos
Poor Tailgunner Ted is singing the blues,
On Yelp, he only gets negative reviews.
He’s all hat and no horse,
Detested in Houston, of course,
Where, instead of cheering the Astros, they booed the Cruz.
