Donald Trump not only believes that he is going to win the 2020 presidential campaign, but he may also want to stay on an additional term or two after that. Of course, the U.S. Constitution forbids any president from having more than two terms, but since when has POTUS let a little thing like the Constitution get in his way? One of his campaign ads shows him remaining in term after term after term. Here is what one of the most recent polls had to say.
Former Vice President Joe Biden beat Trump by a whopping nine points among registered voters, 51 percent to 42 percent, according to NBC News.
The poll also indicated that Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) but running as a Democrat led Trump by seven points 50 percent to 43 percent. Both women senators in this race beat the president, too. Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) had a five-point lead, 48 percent to 43 percent, and Kamala Harris (D-CA) led by only one point, 45 percent to 44 percent.

There are still 200 days until the first and all-important Iowa caucus. That may have sounded like a long time, but it is not when a person is holding down a full-time job in the Senate, being a mother or father, and running against a charismatic president with a strong base.
One advantage of the polls is that they remain static while the rest of the world rushes by. After all, a poll is simply a snapshot in time. At the same point in his 2016 campaign, President Barack Obama held a one-percentage-point edge over Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT), 46 percent to 45 percent. In the end, 44 won the general election by four points, 51 percent to 47 percent.
Name recognition has been in Biden’s favor during the first months of the 2020 presidential campaign. The former vice president led among “independent voters, whites and suburban residents than the rest of the Democratic field.”
Biden did better during the initial period He took the lead with men (51 to 42 percent), white voters (50 percent to 43 percent) and white voters with no college degree (56 to 37 percent). The all-important black vote went to Biden, too, (85 to nine percent), women (59-34 percent), suburban voters (49-43 percent), and finally, independents (45-41 percent).
However, Trump came out tied and occasionally holding a slight lead among independents and suburban voters. He had a strong lead in the white voters category.
Among registered voters, 45 percent approved of the job Trump has been doing with 52 percent disapproving, which has remained virtually unchanged.
When it came to Republicans, Trump brought in a full 89 percent approving of the job he has been doing. Other areas where the president was doing well was among rural voters (62 percent), men (53 percent), people between the ages of 50 and 64 (53 percent) and whites (52 percent).
POTUS tanked in several demographic areas:
‘His worst numbers are with Democrats (just 7 percent approve), African Americans (18 percent), Latinos (29 percent), women (38 percent) and voters ages 18-34 (32 percent).’
The NBC/WSJ poll reached over 50 percent of its registered voters by cell phone. It was conducted between July 7th and July 9th among 800 participants. The overall margin of error was 3.5 percentage points.
