New York Times: DeSantis Campaign on ‘Hospice Care,’ Facing ‘Inevitable Death’

The New York Times has claimed that Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’s 2024 campaign is now on the brink of failure.

The NY Times, which Daily Wire pundit Andrew Klavan calls a “former newspaper” because of its bias, declared on Sunday that DeSantis’s GOP presidential campaign is now on “hospice care.”

The outlet claims that the governor’s presidential hopes are now facing “inevitable death.”

However, a spokesperson for DeSantis called the story bogus.

The Times piece quoted close advisor Ryan Tyson as having said privately “to multiple people that they are at the point in the campaign where they need to ‘make the patient comfortable,’ a phrase evoking hospice care.”

DeSantis communication director Andrew Romeo denied the report and produced a statement from Tyson denying the quoted comments, however.

“Different day, same media hit job based on unnamed sources with agendas,” Romeo said.

“While the media tried to proclaim this campaign dead back in August, Ron DeSantis fought back and enters the home stretch in Iowa as the hardest working candidate with the most robust ground game,” he added.

“DeSantis has been underestimated in every race he’s ever run and always proved the doubters wrong.

“We are confident he will defy the odds once again on Jan. 15.”

Two weeks before the Iowa caucuses, polls show DeSantis more than 30 points behind President Donald Trump.

DeSantis is virtually tied with former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley with about 17% of the vote.

It’s a far cry from the 30% support DeSantis had in May when he declared his candidacy.

DeSantis acknowledged that the Trump indictments “sucked a lot of the oxygen” out of his campaign.

He notes that outraged Republicans threw their support behind Trump in reaction to the charges against him.

“If I could have one thing change, I wish Trump hadn’t been indicted on any of this stuff,” DeSantis said in a recent CBN interview.

Nationally, Trump now stands at almost 70% Republican support with DeSantis closer to 12%.

With some more campaigning in later primary states, DeSantis could pick up a few points.

However, it seems clear that Republicans want Trump back in a bad way for 2024, despite his many legal woes.

DeSantis has similar policies (other than abortion) but he has not managed to grab voters the way only Trump seems able to do.

While anything may still be possible, it certainly looks like Trump will get the nomination and face Democrat President Joe Biden or Gavin Newsom whoever ends up being the Democrat nominee.
