(FixThisNation.com) – Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) is making an attempt to reset his presidential campaign as many have questioned whether he is a viable candidate to go against former President Donald Trump.
Last week DeSantis’s team confirmed that they were going to be removing some employees. This news came after the latest poll results and headlines which have shown that the situation is not as good as it should be for the Florida governor.
Following many weeks of being pressured into making a change in his campaign, DeSantis is now scheduled for an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper on Tuesday. This is the first formal interview that he will give to a major news organization that is not Fox News.
Kevin Madden, who had been a part of Sen. Mitt Romney’s (R-Utah) two presidential campaigns in 2008 and 2012, claimed that the trend line is one of the most important things to consider in the metrics of success. He added that DeSantis could find some important “warning signs there.”
DeSantis is trying to win back the support and momentum that he had gathered late last year when he had been believed to be the best Republican to join the presidential race against Trump. However, recent polling has shown that DeSantis has lost much of his early support in the early-voting states, including South Carolina and New Hampshire.
Many of his donors are also considering which other presidential candidates they should be supporting in DeSantis’ place. More recently, another blow to DeSantis’ campaign came after it was revealed that they would need to let go of certain staffers. DeSantis has managed to raise $20.1 million in the last quarter of fundraising, however, even these fundraising efforts have not been enough as he spent close to $8 million within that quarter.
