Donald Trump considers any candidate who runs against him in a presidential election his enemy. The way POTUS goes after them is exactly the way he went after and continues to go after Secretary Hillary Clinton. He tries to pound them 10 times harder every time they win a political point against him. He gives them an ugly nickname, which hits them in their most vulnerable point. Throughout the campaign, the president tries to turn people’s perception of his opponents into the vision of the candidates’ demeaned nicknamed person. He is up to his old tricks again.
Democrats believed that the man who occasionally sits in the Oval Office has not shown proof of his “stable genius.” A new Washington Post-ABC News Poll showed that the president’s “strong economy and perception that he has dealt with it effectively” pulled Trump’s approval rating higher than it has been, according to The Washington Post.
The survey selected Biden, Senators Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Kamala Harris (D-CA), and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg also made the survey’s cut.
There has been evidence that Trump could have found a way to win a 2020 presidential election. Granted six in 10 Americans disapproved of him, but it has been difficult to win against a standing president. Both Presidents Jimmy Carter and George H.W. Bush Sr. lost after one term, but that was rare.
The new survey fortunately shows a significant gap between Trump and the former Vice President Joe Biden even with the hypothetical general-election match when there were the top four candidates participating.
Men prefer Trump among four of the five challengers in the Democratic party. However, men run even in a Biden and Trump race. Under the same circumstances “women back all five of the candidates by strong margins.”
The survey asked registered voters about the five candidates running against Trump, Biden came away with a clear victory 53 percent to 43 percent — 10 points. Against Harris, Trump carried 46 percent against her 48 percent. Against Sanders, the president pulled 48 percent to 49 percent for the Vermont independent, also running on the 2020 presidential campaign. Against Warren and Buttigieg, both tied him with Harris 48 percentage points and Buttigieg with 47 percentage points.
Among registered voters, only Biden emerges with a clear advantage, leading Trump by 53 percent to 43 percent. Trump runs very close against Harris (46 percent Trump, 48 percent Harris) and Sanders (48 percent Trump, 49 percent Sanders), and he runs even against Warren (both at 48 percent) and Buttigieg (both at 47 percent).
This poll was taken when the president was at the G-20 meeting in Japan. From there he went to meet with North Korea’s Kum Jong Un. The Chinese trade tension relaxed somewhat, but Americans disapproved of how he handled foreign policy 55 percent to 40 percent.
The Washington Post-ABC News Poll was performed by landlines and cell phones from June 28 through July 1. The survey contacted a random sampling across the nation resulting in a total of 1,008 adults. The margin of error among all of the participants was 3.5 +/- percentage points, among registered voters the margin of error was 4 +/- percentage points.
