57 percent of voters say they won't support Trump in 2020

With the 2020 presidential election already underway, 57 percent of registered voters said they would definitely vote against President Donald Trump, according to the latest poll from the PBS NewsHour, NPR and Marist.

Another 30 percent of voters said they would cast their ballot to support Trump, and an additional 13 percent said they had no idea who would get their vote.

Although the election is still nearly two years away, the large number of voters who oppose Trump as well as his low approval ratings suggest the president faces a “steep, steep incline” in winning re-election, said Lee Miringoff, the director of the Marist Institute for Public Opinion.

“The president has had his base and not much else,” Miringoff added.

10. A Gallup Poll released Wednesday reports the idiot has an 8% approval rating amongst Dems...

so, why is it so hard to believe 5% of the same party claim they will vote for him in 2020?

Its latest survey found that 87 percent of Republican respondents approved of Trump’s job performance during his second year in office, while just 8 percent of Democratic respondents gave the president positive marks.

Um, Huston, we have a problem.  8% of Dems support the Orange Menace.  Cry havoc and unleash the dogs of war!! :rotf: :rotf:
Should one a man of wisdom meet
who points out faults and gives reproof,
who lays a hidden treasure bare,
with such a sage should one consort.
Consorting so is one enriched
and never in decline.

They've been SO nasty since the 2016 election they're setting themselves up for a huge disappointment.  They have no one to blame but themselves.  Not many voters are like we are.  They see all the nastiness on social media, and in the streets and they want no part of it.  How many registered voters out there that absolutely plan to vote for Trump are actually going to step up and admit it?!

I read the other day that a huge percentage of the people who are donating to the wall gofundme page are ... democrats.

When Trump wins a second term I need to have a mole account at the DUmp.

This is from the same reliable and reputable polling firms that showed the Hildebeast out in front by 20 points and that there was a 98% chance she would win right?


Dear DUchebags, Hillary "Felon" Clinton will never be president.


P.S.  Did you all see how POTUS Trump dunked on old Nanzi Palsi by canceling her military aircraft for a junket to europe?  LIKE A BOSS!

And some of you are friends and you're going to call, and you're going to say, 'Mr. President, please, we can't take it anymore, we can't win anymore like this, Mr. President, you're driving us crazy, you're winning too much, please Mr. President, not so much, and I'm going to say I'm sorry, we're going to keep winning because we are going to make America great again."

Registered or likely voters...this actually matters.  Which is why so many of these polls are virtually meaningless.

That the MSM skew many "polls" by playing sample model games is not news, though they usually played it straight late in a Presidential campaign. In 2016, though, they kept playing games to the day of the election. The MSM and their polls cannot be trusted. Not for years to come, probably not for decades, and maybe never. That's what happens to liars that are caught.

As I alluded to above, almost every pollster uses "registered voters" rather than people who are voting.  Hence that's why the esteemed Nate Silver and others are leaning on completely inaccurate polls.
