A lot of troubling signs for the current president have been showing up in polls and news reports with the 2020 election just around the corner. Trump’s utter fear of those signs showed itself in the form of a real Twitter frenzy of supportive retweets and pushback against claims that Trump’s rallies are not the draw they once were.
In a matter of one afternoon, Trump tweeted and retweeted nearly 30 times, pushing the message of Twitter supporters willing to say nice things about him and “news” outlets willing to flatter his ego.
His fear stems from new polls showing that the wide field of 2020 Democratic candidates are well-positioned to take over his seat. The Washington Post noted that four candidates – Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris – handily top his support in head-to-head matchups. There are other indicators in those polls that bode even worse for Trump.
‘There has been plenty of talk about Trump’s consistently low approval rating and how it sets him up for reelection. But in this poll, he doesn’t even completely lock down that vote. While he gets 38 to 39 percent in all four matchups, his approval rating is actually 43 percent. That means roughly 4 percent of registered voters say they approve of Trump but they’re not ready to vote for him…And as Josh Jordan noted, this isn’t the first poll to show that.’
Of course, Trump will dismiss the poll conducted by The Post as “fake news,” but even his beloved Fox News has had bad news for him.
‘Voters who have a negative view of both Biden and Trump back Biden by a 43-10 percent margin in the head-to-head matchup, although many would vote for someone else (27 percent), wouldn’t vote (12 percent) or are undecided (8 percent).’
Is it any wonder Trump is becoming desperate?
Twitter had a lot of responses for President Trump, and not many were any better news for the racist-in-chief than the polls have offered. Read some of their comments below:
