US election 2024: Ron DeSantis' missteps?

The video that Ron DeSantis used to announce his campaign for president in May of last year gave the impression that he was full of self-assurance.

"the Great American Comeback" was the pledge he made to his fans as he marched across a stage that was decorated with flags from beginning to end.

After seven months, the individual who some people referred to as "Trump 2.0" and "Trump without the baggage" has decided to withdraw his candidacy for the presidency. 

It was with the acknowledgment that there is no "clear path to victory" against the dominating frontrunner for the Republican nomination that he announced his decision to leave political office.

Where did things go wrong for the governor of Florida, who was regarded a political rock star not so long ago for his fight against "woke ideology" and his impressive track record in office?

It was not only the campaign that the candidate ran that was problematic; there were also issues with the candidate himself, such as a perceived lack of charisma and his awkwardness with voters.

On the other hand, the man he was competing against, Donald Trump, was nothing more than the underlying cause of his failure.

It was impossible for him to compete against a figure who had such unwavering devotion from his fans, according to Matthew Bartlett, a Republican strategist based in New Hampshire.
