Result hits for DDG vs Google

When I search 3 words NEGATIVE IONS INLAND, on DDG in the first 7 results I get only 2 of the 3 words in each result bar one result. And in one of the first 7 results I get 1 word. On Google in the first 7 results all bar one (with 2 words) have all 3 words in the results description.
Is this something that is evolving on DDG and will improve? I know about putting quotation marks around each word but it's tedious.

I just tried searching negative AND ions AND inland and it greatly improved the results. In the first 7 results there were 6 with all 3 words and one with 2. I actually don't mind doing this nearly as much as the quotation marks - it flows much easier when typing. I guess I'll do this for now.
