The most recent Yahoo News/YouGov survey found that after hearing that Trump had been indicted by a New York grand jury, he had jumped to a 26-point advantage over Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R).
In his prosecution of Trump, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is focused on the claimed part he allegedly played in giving porn actress Stormy Daniels $130,000 in hush money.
One of the first surveys to be performed following the announcement of Trump’s indictment was the Yahoo News/YouGov poll.
In that survey’s hypothetical head-to-head matchup against DeSantis, who garnered 31% support, respondents selected Trump with 57% of the vote.
Trump increased by ten points since the last Yahoo News/YouGov poll, which was conducted less than two weeks ago and showed Trump at 47% and DeSantis at 39%.
In a larger group of 10 announced and possible Republican primary rivals, Trump got 52% of the vote, up from 44% in the prior survey, while DeSantis’ support fell from 28% to 21%.
Other than Trump and DeSantis, no other contender achieved double-digit support.
1,089 American adults were polled by Yahoo News in the first 24 hours following the announcement of Trump’s arrest. The range of error for the poll is 3.3%.
