A new Yahoo News/YouGov poll suggests that Gov. Ron DeSantis may have actually lost ground Donald Trump since officially entering the race for the 2024 GOP nomination.
Among potential Republican primary voters, Trump now leads the full field of seven declared candidates with 53%. That’s up from 48% in early May, before DeSantis threw his hat in the ring. And DeSantis now lags further behind than he did just a few weeks ago; his 25% is down from 28% in early May.
Put another way, DeSantis trailed Trump by 20 points in the previous Yahoo News/YouGov poll. Today, he trails by 28 points.Save to Favorites
