DeSantis won Florida by just 30,000 votes. And he’s not that popular in Florida. With a Democratic Congress against him, what will he do but acquire Trump’s governing baggage? DeSantis has hardly shown himself to be a Bill Clinton (who balanced the budget and eliminated the national debt, despite a GOP Congress out for his head for 8 years), much less an LBJ.

Just An Argument
And has anybody outside of Twitter really heard of him? He’s Trump without Trump? Not really a selling point beyond the GOP base. Besides recent polling shows even Kamala ahead of DeSantis.
So, sure, make him the front runner. I remember when Chris Christie held that position; long before the primaries started. You want to kill a political career, make him the standard bearer two years before the primaries start.
