(RoyalPatriot.com )- Fox & Friends’ Tuesday edition was co-hosted by Brian Kilmeade, who broadcast from a restaurant in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.
When asked whether thousands of people relocating to the state is good, the audience screamed, “USA! USA!” and many hands went up. When asked if the economy was doing well, no hands went up.
Diners are “not so much Republican or Democrat; they’re largely pro-America,” Kilmeade said.
During a break, he conducted an informal survey of customers’ preferred candidates for the next presidential election of 2024.
He began by asking the patrons if they were excited about the upcoming election in 2024.
Kilmeade was in the Metro Diner and said he wanted speedy answers, “rapid fire.”
He asked who was their man or woman.
The first six replies favored former President Donald Trump, and two of them also listed South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem and former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley as potential running mates for Trump.
Kilmeade noted that, so far, it was a lot of Donald Trump. That’s when he spotted a lady in attendance wearing a shirt with the name of the Florida governor.
“I see a Governor DeSantis shirt,” Kilmeade said. “What about President DeSantis?’ he questioned the lady.
The woman said she “liked the sound of it” but “didn’t know.” She said it was an “either/or” choice between Trump and DeSantis.
While it’s still early in the 2024 presidential election cycle, many analysts believe Trump and DeSantis will be the top two candidates for the Republican candidacy. The patrons at the Metro Diner in Ponte Vedra have a far better sense of who they want to run for president in 2024 than the current polls, which show Trump leading DeSantis by 15 points.
Interestingly, before being elected governor, Ron DeSantis lived within walking distance of the Metro Diner and represented the region in Congress.
Kilmeade owns a house in Ponte Vedra Beach.
