(Jun.2, 2023) — Political commentator Jeff Crouere, a weekly columnist with The Post & Email and many other publications, longtime YouTuber and author of “America’s Last Chance,” has posted a poll asking who 45th President Donald J. Trump should choose as his running-mate if he wins the Republican presidential nomination.
In a newsletter release Friday, Crouere asked if Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) should be Trump’s pick.
“After next week,” he wrote, “there could be twelve or more officially declared Republican presidential candidates. The 2024 presidential race is shaping up just like 2016. In that year, there were so many candidates that the debates were split between major and minor candidates. Once again, President Donald Trump is leading. Of course, he represents the ‘Make America Great Again’ movement. He is facing many candidates who are favored by other factions of the Republican Party: establishment, Never Trumpers, etc…Would Trump/DeSantis make a good ticket? If not, who would be a better pick? Is it better for him to choose a woman, a minority, a younger candidate, or someone from a battleground state?”
