Former president had the edge over Florida governor last month
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has the edge again over Donald Trump to score the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, according to the latest odds in the betting market PredictIt.
The former president’s prospects have edged down as reports say the FBI searched his Mar-a-Lago estate as part of an investigation into whether he took classified records from the White House to his Florida residence.
DeSantis has a 38% chance, ahead of Trump’s 32% and 5% for Nikki Haley, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, according to PredictIt’s data. Former Vice President Mike Pence and other Republican politicians are at 4% or lower.
DeSantis previously was favored over Trump by PredictIt users in June, but then Trump had the edge in July.
To be sure, betting markets aren’t always…
