Blueprint Polling's most recent study, according to Newsweek, indicates that 50.9% of Republican voters would support the Republican governor, whereas only 38.6% would favor Trump.
Blueprint Polling compiled their study based on the opinions of 656 people who responded between July 7 and July 10. AlterNet also claimed that the poll's margin of error is anticipated to be roughly +/- 3.82 percent.
Additionally, the news source provided a split of voters that remain steadfast in their decision.
Among these people, DeSantis' lead increases by nearly 14 points (47.6 percent to 33.2%) if he and his opponent are the last two candidates in the GOP primary. In addition, the poll report said that older Republicans are more likely to endorse Trump, although DeSantis still leads the former president across all age groups.
"Trump is tied with DeSantis among voters with some college but among high school graduates as well as college graduates and those with advanced degrees, DeSantis polls much better," the report noted.
"Sixty-six percent of respondents agreed that Florida Republicans believe that widespread election fraud cost Trump the 2020 election, while 11 percent said Florida Republicans do not believe but 'will go along with the rhetoric' because it energizes Republicans in upcoming elections."
