However, after the much anticipated “red wave” never materialized, many doubt Donald Trump’s ability to lead the GOP to victory. Many of the candidates Trump endorsed in key races lost their seats, and the flipping of Pennsylvania by the Democrats does not reflect well on the former president who had endorsed Dr. Oz.
Where can you watch Trump’s announcement?
Most cable news networks will be taking the announcement live, which is scheduled for 9 pm ET.
For those without access to cable or network TV, CSPAN will also be live streaming the event.
Will Trump announce his candidacy?
It is very likely that Trump will buck the opinion of many GOP party leaders and move ahead with announcing his third presidential run. Donald Trump clearly sees himself as the party’s leader, and after so many of his candidates lost to Democrats, he will want to show strength and so that his supporters know he will not be told what to do by pundits and what he calls RINOs (Republicans in name only).
Trump may also be trying to get in front of new polls that suggest GOP voters favor Florida Govenor Ron DeSantis. A new poll from YouGov, found that of Republican voters, forty-one percent prefer DeSantis, compared to thirty-nine percent who would support Trump.
While, many right-wing commentators, including Ben Shapiro, have said that they like DeSantis’ chances of defeating Democrats in 2024. Shapiro points to DeSantis’ re-election in Florida as evidence to support this hypothesis. A factor that many are not considering is how even if Trump loses to DeSantis, how his attacks would tarnish the Florida leader in the general election. Knowing that the base is still with Trump, DeSantis may shy away from direct attacks on the former president...but Trump, who cares, first and foremost, about how he is being perceived, will launch an all-out offensive if he thinks that’s what it will take to win.
There is also a good chance that Trump will continue to attack DeSantis tonight when he makes his announcement. Tune in to find out.
