A desperate Ron DeSantis, who now trails not just President Trump but also Nikki Haley in many 2024 GOP Primary polls, used the persecution of the 45th President to manipulate voters into supporting his campaign when he joined Kaitlan Collins for a CNN town hall.
“What I would tell primary voters is, uh, whatever may be beneficial in the primary doesn’t mean it’s beneficial in the general election,” DeSantis said.
“And I think a 2024 election where the Democrats get to run against a candidate that is going through all this stuff, that is going to give the Democrats an advantage,” he went on, seemingly lifting pro-persecution comments straight from the corporate media, who have openly celebrated efforts to get President Trump kicked off the presidential ballot, thrown in prison, or both.
According to DeSantis, the persecution of President Trump is working, and it’s “just a reality” that the unconstitutional cases against him are too much to overcome, despite his massive lead over the GOP field, and widening lead over Joe Biden in the latest polls.
“If they somehow convict, then the Democrats are gonna win the election,” DeSantis went on. “Why do we even want to go down that road?”

The Democrat and corporate media parroting session from Ron DeSantis came less than two weeks ahead of the Iowa caucuses, where the DeSantis campaign appears to have invested all of its marbles. DeSantis has campaigned in each of the state’s 99 counties and received the endorsement of the state’s Governor, Kim Reynolds, who recently showed support for satanism.
Despite his best efforts and the money of some of America’s foremost globalist political donors, DeSantis, along with the rest of the GOP field, is expected to be taken to the woodshed by President Trump on caucus day, January 15th.
As of January 5th, on average, more than 50% of likely GOP Iowa caucusgoers say they’ll be supporting President Trump. Just over 18% of them say they’ll be supporting Ron DeSantis, while just over 15% of them plan on backing Nikki Haley.
