NEW YORK – According to the latest statistics, things are looking grim for the re-election of President Donald Trump in 2020. Currently, there are six Democratic candidates that are beating Trump in the polls. These are the numbers from a survey conducted by Quinnipiac University in Connecticut.
Joe Biden - 53% / Donald Trump - 40%
Bernie Sanders - 51% / Donald Trump – 42%
Kamala Harris – 49% / Donald Trump – 41%
Elizabeth Warren – 49% / Donald Trump – 42%
Pete Buttigieg – 47% / Donald Trump – 42%
Cory Booker – 47% / Donald Trump – 42%
Joe Biden is leading in the polls for the Democratic party; however, Democrats are not so enthusiastic about it.
“There is no question that what has propelled Vice President Biden to clear front-runner status is his unparalleled experience in contrast to his primary counterparts, said pollster Fernand Amandi, a Miami-based consultant to Politico. “but am I hearing gargantuan concerns among Democratic insiders about Biden’s advanced age, which is the very byproduct of that experience derived from a lifetime of public service? Absolutely, yes.”
While Biden is in the lead for the Democratic party, other candidates are still polling ahead of Trump, giving Democrats everywhere a reason to celebrate these newest statistics. Those that cover politics in the media are reveling with each new poll coming in. It’s no secret that Trump has been a target of media backlash even before he began his Presidential term.
What Does This Mean For President Trump?
After news of the polls broke, the President had plenty to say on the issue.
"I don't believe those polls. There's no way former Vice President Joe Biden beats me in Texas," Trump told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on Tuesday during an exclusive interview. "No, my polls show that I'm winning everywhere."
Trump’s approval rating is down in ten states that are critical to his re-election. These states include Ohio, Florida, Indiana, North Carolina, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Iowa, New Hampshire, Michigan, and Arizona. These latest numbers come from Morning Consult and they show that it’s not just Democratic states that are becoming uninterested in backing President Trump.
“Those polls don't exist. I'm losing in 15 out of 17 states? Those polls don't exist," Trump told Stephanopoulous during that same interview. "I just was given a meeting with my pollster who I frankly don't even believe in pollsters if you want to know the truth, you just run a campaign and whatever it is, it is, but I just had a meeting with somebody that's a pollster and I'm winning everywhere, so I don't know what you're talking about."
It would seem that the campaigning arguments are starting earlier this year, but that hasn’t stopped the election odds from changing. Previously, President Trump held the highest odds to win the 2020 Presidential election. His odds have now changed and are even with his Democratic opponents. There is still a lot of campaigning to be done before the election but according to bookmakers everywhere, the 2020 Presidential election is now anyone’s game.
