( – On Saturday, former President Trump visited South Carolina for his first official rally ahead of the 2024 presidential election, and New Hampshire for a GOP meeting. However, currently, the polls don’t show him to be succeeding or having a lot of support in either state.

While Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has not yet announced a presidential run for 2024, current polls show him to be leading ahead of Trump who announced his third presidential bid in November.

A poll by the University of New Hampshire released on Thursday shows that around 42 percent of GOP primary voters would choose DeSantis over Trump, whereas only 30 percent would vote for Trump. The survey took place between January 19 and 23 by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center and there were 892 respondents. The margin of error is 3.3 percent.

At the same time, Trump already visited Salem, New Hampshire before his rally in South Carolina. In a morning post on Truth Social from Saturday, the day of the rally Trump posted that he was leading the NH poll and the national poll by around 40 points. The poll that Trump shared did indeed show him leading by 37 percent, while DeSantis only had 26 percent support.

Spry Strategies in their poll showed that 54 percent of South Carolina voters would not vote for Trump or President Biden in 2024. The same poll showed that DeSantis had 52 percent of the state’s GOP voters supporting him, while Trump only had 33 percent.
