"Ron DeSanctimonious had a horrible, no good, very bad day as he visited the Swamp yesterday. In the middle of telling outright lies in a FOX News interview, DeSanctus was fact-checked in real time and confronted on his deteriorating poll numbers. 


And if that wasn’t bad enough, while giving a lackluster speech, the sounds of silverware and complete indifference from the audience drowned out whatever DeSanctus may have been saying. 


While back home in Florida, the state GOP scrapped a loyalty pledge for the primary, a devastating blow to DeSanctus and an indictment on his decreasing influence in the state."  

—Steven Cheung, Trump spokesperson


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


With 38 days to go, the Ron DeSanctimonious appears to have gone lifeless.


From the Washington Post:


The 2024 Republican presidential primary campaign is increasingly looking like a coronation, in no small part thanks to the implosion of Donald Trump’s would-be usurper, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.


New polls this week lays bare just how poorly things have gone for the governor. While DeSantis arguably remains the biggest of the minor hurdles Trump needs to clear, his electoral case has effectively collapsed alongside his poll numbers.


While President Trump performed double-header addresses to Concerned Women for America and Faith Research Council in Washington, Republican leaders in Florida sided with President Trump to scrap Ron DeSanctus' "loyalty pledge."


From The Messenger:


The Republican Party of Florida is now Donald Trump’s GOP as well.


In a rebuke to Gov. Ron DeSantis, the state party’s executive board Friday rejected his wishes and acceded to Trump’s by voting to scrap a newly instituted loyalty oath it wanted presidential candidates to sign in order to appear on the March 19 primary ballot.


The vote was another sign of Trump’s total dominance in the Republican primary over DeSantis, who is trailing him in Florida, early state and national polls by lopsided margins.
