The latest numbers are in for American voters, and the majority has reportedly expressed that they believe Donald Trump should choose Ron DeSantis as his potential vice president. 


According to the I&I/TIPP’s national online poll, out of 14 potential candidates, the top choice was Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.), followed by former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley (R-S.C.) and then entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy. 

With the question of who Trump’s potential running mate should be, the response was overwhelmingly DeSantis, according to the data.

“DeSantis received 34% of the total votes cast on both questions, compared to 24% for Haley, 21% for Ramaswamy, 19% for Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), 17% for Ben Carson, 12% for TV personality and commentator Tucker Carlson and 10% for South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R-S.D.),” it added.

The poll comes after the Florida Governor backed out of the GOP lineup a few weeks ago as Trump continues to dominate the race to become the Republican nomination.

Haley is the only candidate who is still running against Trump, however, he is currently leading her by double digits and is expected to be the GOP nominee.

Meanwhile, Trump has hinted that he may pick his running mate before the summer Republican National Convention. Nevertheless, experts believe that the 45th president will select either “a woman or a person of color” as his vice presidential nominee.

Additionally, insiders believe Trump is looking towards Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA.), Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders (R-Ark.), and Rep. Elise Stefanik [R-N.Y.) as potential VP picks as well.
