While denying any notion of running a lackluster campaign in New Hampshire, Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis candidly acknowledged that former President Donald Trump would effortlessly secure victory in the primary. In terms of popularity among New Hampshire voters, DeSantis currently finds himself in third place, trailing behind Trump and former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley. During a recent appearance on Fox News's Your World With Neil Cavuto, DeSantis highlighted the fact that, despite Haley's substantial financial investment in the New Hampshire primary, she would inevitably concede defeat to Trump, given his unstoppable momentum garnered from Iowa.

I attribute a lot of it to the fact that she dumped a ton of cash into the state. A record sum of money, according to DeSantis. "However, my suspicion is that Trump will easily win New Hampshire." "It seems obvious to me now," he continued. His campaign in Iowa is picking more steam. Even in her native state of South Carolina, nobody seems to believe she has a chance to defeat Trump.

Even while he acknowledged that Trump is a "de-facto incumbent" in the Republican presidential primary, he continued by praising his own campaign and claiming that even a 51% showing in Iowa would help counter Trump's "inevitability argument."

In a typical caucus season, Trump receiving half the vote is great, but I see him as the most renowned politician and a de facto incumbent president, and Iowa proved that. It was revealing that around half of the folks went with someone else, according to DeSantis.

"What we observed in Iowa, and what you can expect to see in New Hampshire and beyond on Tuesday, is that many of the resigned voters we were aiming for were open to other options, but they bought into the inevitability argument," he went on to say. I attribute at least some of the poor attendance to it. After seeing Trump get away with it, they probably thought there was no need in trying it themselves. That is going to remain the thing that is inevitable. The RealClearPolitics polling average shows that DeSantis trailed Trump and Haley in New Hampshire with 6% each, and that he placed second in the Iowa caucuses with 21.2%, compared to Trump's 51%.
