"Jeff Roe’s kiss of death has proven to be prescient as Ron DeSanctimonious’ campaign is dead on arrival after a brutal week where he embarrassed himself in Texas amid cratering poll numbers. 

Back home in Florida, even his closest allies have started to plot against DeSanctus after they smell blood in the water from their severely wounded governor. 
We’re almost at the half way point of Roe’s mandated 60 days. Maybe DeSanctus will spare himself the humiliation of being a total loser and drop out but, then again, it’s been quite entertaining to see someone light themselves on fire everyday."

—Steven Cheung, Trump spokesperson


On August 24, 2023, Always Back Down consultant Jeff Roe gave Ron DeSantctimonious 60 days to "beat Trump."


With just one month left to turn his failing campaign around, things have gone from bad to worse for DeSanctus. After sliding into third in South Carolina and fifth in New Hampshire, the buzz surrounding Ron has universally shifted to talks of DeSanctus dropping out.




Interviews with nearly two dozen lobbyists, political consultants and lawmakers revealed that DeSanctus’ struggles as a presidential candidate have already eroded his influence in Florida. There is a widespread expectation that his candidacy will end in failure. 


“You don’t get the assumption they are measuring drapes anymore — they are waiting for him to drop out,” one long-time Republican consultant in Tallahassee said of those working for the governor. 


New polling from Trafalgar shows President Trump with a commanding 33-point lead over DeSanctimonious in Iowa, with President Trump gaining 7 points since August.
