In a shocking turn of events, Elon Musk has seemingly abandoned his support for GOP candidate Ron DeSantis and has now bonded with 2024 contender Vivek Ramaswamy over their shared concerns about the failing American dream. During a Twitter Spaces interview, Musk lavished praise on Ramaswamy, calling him a “very promising candidate.” Together, they lamented the efforts of the elite to undermine the greatness of America, which they both deemed “insane.”
Ramaswamy, a staunch advocate for American pride, condemned the progressive Democrats for their “self-destructive” attempts to undermine the Constitution. He expressed his worry that his own sons might not have the opportunity to achieve the American dream if Democrats continue to control the White House. Ramaswamy’s heartfelt plea struck a chord with Musk, who admitted his genuine concern for the future of the American dream.
It is disheartening to witness yet another celebrity entrepreneur jump ship from supporting DeSantis. Musk had previously thrown his weight behind the Florida governor’s campaign, but as DeSantis’s popularity wanes in the polls, it seems that Musk has swiftly changed course. Perhaps Musk’s allegiance was misplaced from the beginning, as DeSantis has faced numerous campaign troubles, including technical difficulties during his Twitter Spaces event. Clearly, DeSantis’s lackluster performance has pushed prominent donors and supporters like Musk to seek alternative options.
Elon Musk Appears to Switch Sides From DeSantis to Ramaswamy

On the other hand, Ramaswamy has been steadily gaining momentum and has overtaken DeSantis in recent polls. A Rasmussen poll even revealed that Ramaswamy now trails behind former President Trump by a mere 47 points, which is a significant achievement for a newcomer to the political arena. This surge in popularity speaks volumes about Ramaswamy’s appeal and the disillusionment many Republicans feel towards DeSantis.
As debates loom on the horizon, leaked materials have uncovered DeSantis’s campaign strategy, instructing him to use a “sledgehammer” approach against Ramaswamy. While this may be an attempt to regain lost ground, it only reveals the desperation within DeSantis’s camp and paints a picture of a floundering campaign.
It remains to be seen how Musk’s newfound alliance with Ramaswamy will affect the 2024 race. However, the fact that Ramaswamy has captured the attention and support of influential figures like Musk cannot be overlooked. Perhaps it is time for conservatives to open their minds to alternative candidates who genuinely understand the concerns of everyday Americans and are willing to fight for the preservation of the American dream.
