Anti-Trump GOP hopes are currently based on fantasy math

There are some anti-Trump Republicans and conservatives issuing a familiar cry: Non-Trump

Republicans should consolidate behind a single candidate who can wrest the party back from Trump. If DeSantis dropped out, it would be Trump leading Haley 49% to 20% in Iowa. It is an absolute fantasy to assume that Haley would gain the entirety of the remaining 30% in a head-to-head race. The only reason this fantasy is entertained is that the "anybody but Trump" contingent of conservatism is very overrepresented in the commentariat.
