However, Trump’s chances of returning to the White House dropped by more than 1.3 percent after details surrounding the raid at his Mar-a-Lago resort emerged.
The FBI conducted the raid as part of an ongoing investigation into Trump’s potentially unlawful removal and destruction of White House records after he left office in January 2021.
DeSantis lead over Trump is currently its highest level since the betting market for 2024 contenders was opened.
