DeSantis found his voice very late in the campaign, Sonnens analyzes. “Still, he seemed to have gotten off to a good start: He won a second term in the gubernatorial election by an incredible margin, and was labeled as the man to forget Trump. When the latter ran for office, they didn't give him a chance. DeSantis, however, waited five months to join the race. , and then the momentum is gone.”
On top of that, he didn't cut a good figure in the first place. “At first he seemed to be studying, he didn't dare to do anything. He's grown so much in this that he's starting to become combative and quick in debates and interviews – but it's too late.” According to Sonnens, “It didn't help that he was a tough guy, bad at dealing with voters and lacking the X factor.
It is inconceivable that he has thrown away this year keeping in mind the 2028 elections. “He was 50 then, still a young man. If he destroys himself now, he will lose all his honors and probably have to leave politics. By boycotting the presidential election now, he can return to his position.”
