The Yahoo News/YouGov Poll is one of the most left-leaning, Uniparty-Swamp-loving polls in America. They projected Donald Trump to lose to Hillary Clinton in 2016 and to be blown out by Joe Biden in 2020. They are a borderline “push poll,” a campaign tactic used to sway voters rather than simply record their opinions.
That’s why the first poll taken since it was announced Trump would be indicted by Soros-backed Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is so funny. The poll had put Ron DeSantis over Trump in the GOP primary until mid-February, then had Trump with a very slim lead since then despite most polls showing him surging to a double-digit lead last month. Now, it’s showing a far-wider gap.
According to a clearly disgruntled Yahoo News:
In the previous Yahoo News/YouGov survey, which was conducted less than two weeks ago, Trump (47%) led DeSantis (39%) by eight percentage points in a head-to-head matchup among registered voters who are Republicans or Republican-leaning independents. As recently as February, it was DeSantis who was narrowly ahead of Trump, 45% to 41%.
But the new, post-indictment poll suddenly finds Trump lapping DeSantis by 26 percentage points — 57% to 31% — in a one-on-one contest. The former president even attracts majority support (52%, up from 44% previously) when pitted against a wider, 10-candidate field of declared and potential GOP challengers, while DeSantis plummets to 21% (down from 28%).
No one else cracks double digits.
It will be challenging for DeSantis or any of the current and prospective candidates to get traction while Trump is under such a direct attack in this partisan witch hunt. Perhaps they should listen to Ric Grenell and push off their ambitions to 2028.

DeSantis is toast. No one is fooled by his Trumpism without Trump. DeSantis is an establishment stooge who doing what his handlers tell him.
