In a few days, the first state to engage in the 2024 presidential primary will hold its caucuses. Iowa helps set the tone for the rest of the year, as both parties engage in picking their nominees.
Polling has shown that, among Republicans, Donald Trump is dominating. According to one poll, he has a 30-point lead over his rivals.
But one top Republican in the House is making a surprising prediction. What he’s seeing on the ground could turn the entire race around. And it might be a big upset for Trump.
From Fox News:
“There’s a massive surge going on for governor DeSantis,” [GOP Congressman Chip] Roy explained. “It really is interesting and people are engaging in and focusing, not just listening to the noise and not just listening to the polls.”
Roy told Fox News Digital the enthusiasm he has seen on the ground suggests the caucus will be closer than people think and that polls aren’t the same thing as showing up next Monday to actually caucus.
Texas Republican Rep. Chip Roy suggested that DeSantis is in a good position, going into the caucus. Despite polls, he says there has been a “massive surge” happening from Gov. DeSantis.
DeSantis has been attending “event after event” in the state—and people are showing up to see him. Roy claims that in many of these events, it’s “standing room only,” implying that there are many Iowa Republicans eager to back the Florida governor.
DeSantis was a favorite going into the Republican primaries. Yet he has failed to overtake Trump in the polls, especially after the Democrat indictments. If polls are to be believed, Trump will easily win the Republican nomination.
But Roy doesn’t think the polls are giving a clear picture of where DeSantis stands in Iowa. He said polls “aren’t the same thing” as people attending the caucus next Monday.
- Republican Rep. Chip Roy claims DeSantis is experiencing a “massive surge” in Iowa.
- The DeSantis supporter says the candidate is in a good position, going into the caucus.
- According to polls, Donald Trump has a large lead over his GOP rivals.
