“Kayleigh ‘Milktoast’ McEnany just released the wrong poll numbers on Fox News,” Trump wrote on Truth Social on Tuesday.
“I’m not 25 points up against Desanctimonias, I’m up 34. 25 is great, but not 34,” he continued, adding that McEnany said, “This figure is up by the group that did the poll. I knew it was revised upwards,” he said.
“RINOS and Globalists can get her. FoxNews should only use REAL STARS!!!”
McEnany served as President Trump’s press secretary and is now co-host of Fox News. outnumbered, He reportedly made remarks on the poll Tuesday night during a conversation with Jesse Watters. claim The DeSantis campaign would argue that the gap has narrowed nine points since the Iowa announcement.
But recent polls show Trump continues to have the upper hand in Hawkeye state. For example, in Hawkeye State, Trump actually has a 42-point lead, according to Emerson University poll data from May.
As reported by Breitbart News:
The poll, which surveyed 442 Republican caucus attendees in Iowa, found that Trump leads the Republican primary with an overwhelming 62% of the vote. Other candidates fall far short. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who officially entered the race on Wednesday, came in second with 20% support, by 42 points.
Former Vice President Mike Pence and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley tied for third with 5% each, followed by Senator Tim Scott with 3%. Notably, Scott officially launched his candidacy for president on Monday.
Nevertheless, McEnany said, said Mr. Trump is still “well ahead” of Mr. DeSantis.
President Trump’s remarks saw Mr. DeSantis raid early voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, and on Saturday at Senator Joni Ernst (R, Iowa)’s Roast & Ride fundraiser. So it was done while visiting Iowa again.
