President Donald Trump is once again showing why the Republicans chose him to be their leader. A recent Yahoo News/YouGov poll found that Trump not only beats every possible Republican challenger in hypothetical and head-to-head matchups, but he also beats them by a huge 28 points. The poll shows that Trump is doing better than Republican rivals like Gov. Ron DeSantis, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, Sen. Tim Scott, Vivek Ramaswamy, and former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson.

Even when they go head-to-head, Trump still wins. DeSantis, for example, is 24 points behind Trump. Only 31% of Republican voters support him, while 55% of Republican voters back Trump. Scott just recently ran for president, but when Trump challenged him, there was no competition. Scott has 18 percent of the vote, which is 51% less than Trump's 69 percent.

In a straight race, former Vice President Mike Pence, who has been rumored to run for president, comes in far behind Trump, with only 16% of the vote to Trump's 73%. Trump has backing from 70 percent of Republicans, while Haley only has 18 percent.
Only Youngkin, who is 62 points behind Trump, comes close to Trump in the poll. With these findings, there is no doubt that Trump is still the most popular candidate among Republican voters.
In the poll, no one is even close to the former president. DeSantis, who has 25 percent support, is 28 points behind Trump, who has 53 percent support. Others got less than 3% of the vote, which shows that Trump is far ahead of any other Republican candidate.
The poll was done from May 25-30, 2023, with 1,520 adults in the U.S. It comes before two highly anticipated presidential announcements. Next week, Pence is likely to say that he is running for president at a rally in Des Moines, Iowa, while Christie is likely to do the same next Tuesday in New Hampshire.
Even though some pretenders have tried to take his place, it's clear that President Trump is still the leader of the Republican Party. His popularity among his followers is unmatched, and he is still the best choice to lead our party to victory in the next presidential race.
