DeSantis struggled to answer the question.

Hannity took the opportunity to question DeSantis about his lack of support from voters. In one recent University of North Florida Public Opinion Research Lab poll, Trump has 60% of support in DeSantis’ state of Florida while DeSantis only has 21%.

In a CBS News poll, Trump holds 61% support from Republicans while DeSantis only has 18%. Nikki Haley has been gaining and currently stands at 9% of support.

Hannity told DeSantis, “Let me look at the polls and let me ask you the question.”

He continued, “Donald Trump has had a pretty large lead against all the other candidates. And in many ways when you would think that if a presidential candidate gets indicted four times and arraigned four times, it seems to defy all conventional political gravity that every time that happens that the poll numbers go up. How do you explain that?”

DeSantis said he believed Trump’s criminal cases were helping him with voters.

“I think that when that Alvin Bragg case came down, it was just so transparently ridiculous to go back seven or eight years,” DeSantis said referring to Trump’s criminal case in New York over alleged hush money payments.

He continued, “Clearly this would not have been brought for nonpolitical reasons. And so I think that he got a lot of sympathy as a result of that in particular. Maybe some of the others too.”

DeSantis remained hopeful telling Hannity a lot of voters had yet to make up their mind.

For his part, Trump has continued to attack DeSantis.

Earlier this month, he took to his social media platform Truth Social to criticize Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds for endorsing DeSantis this week.

He said, "Why would anybody endorse Ron DeSanctimonious, who is like a wounded bird falling from the sky? His Poll numbers are terrible, he is totally against Ethanol, and fought to destroy Social Security and Medicare. Well, the “Nation’s most unpopular governor,” Kim Reynolds of Iowa, just endorsed him. What’s that all about?"
