What Ron DeSantis and Nikki Haley Need is a Good Old-Fashioned Indictment!
Have you seen the latest polls? Former president and current presidential candidate Donald Trump is killing it!
Trump is beating President Joe Biden for the first time all year in a Quinnipiac University poll. Quinnipiac oversamples Democrats and polls "registered voters" instead of "likely voters." So, all their polls are tilted against Trump.
And still... he's beating Biden.
In credible polls of "likely voters" Trump is beating Biden badly (which translates to an electoral landslide). Trump is even beating Biden among minority males. And he's beating Biden on all the key issues: economy, immigration and war.
Which is why Democrats are in full-on panic mode. They now understand they have to kick Biden to the curb. Standing in the on-deck circle is Gov. Gavin Newsom and (they hope and pray) former first lady Michelle Obama.
But this column is not about Trump crushing Biden. This column is about the also-rans who think they're running against Trump in the GOP primary. "Think" being the key word. In reality, they're running for vice president... or for bigger book deals and speaking fees... or they're running to represent the RINOS, D.C. swamp, or the deep state.
Ron DeSantis started out on fire. Everyone loved the job DeSantis has done as Florida's governor. Everyone (but me) thought he'd beat the pants off Trump. But as they say at the border, "No way, Jose." It turns out the more voters get to know DeSantis, the lower his poll numbers go.
Quinnipiac says Trump leads the GOP primary 64% to 16% over DeSantis. That's almost 50 points for all of you who attended public schools. Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley has 9% in the same poll. Trump is beating her by 55 points.
By the way, in Texas, DeSantis is now in single digits, and he's fallen to third place. Quick, call 911 -- DeSantis has fallen, and he can't get up.
DeSantis and Haley are getting pummeled. Trump's beating their brains out.
