According to a poll released on Tuesday, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis leads former President Donald Trump by 23 points among Republicans in a hypothetical GOP presidential primary.
The USA Today-Suffolk University poll revealed that 56 percent of Republican voters prefer DeSantis in 2024, while 33 percent back Trump. An interesting sidebar is that over 60 percent of the voters want Trump's policies continued by someone other than Trump.

“Republicans and conservative independents increasingly want Trumpism without Trump,” said David Paleologos, the director of the Suffolk University Political Research Center.
Last month Trump became the first candidate to announce his intentions to run in 2024. Since then there have been multiple signs that he may be losing his grasp on the Republican Party.
The poll also showed that Trump's approval rating among Republicans has dropped 75 percent in October to 64 percent now. His unfavorable rating has ticked up five points during the same time, from 18 to 23 percent.
Pollsters found Biden leading Trump in a hypothetical 2024 rematch 47 to 40, while it showed DeSantis leading Biden 47 to 43.
Quite the disconnect in 2024 polling, depending on who Republicans nominate (per USA Today/Suffolk poll):
