Poll: 55 percent of Americans 'flatly rule out' voting for Trump in 2020
Still about 44.85 percent too low, but this is good news.
A recent ABC News/Washington Post poll conducted by Langer Research found that 55 percent of respondents “definitely would not” vote for Trump in 2020.
So, yeah, he starts the election in a hole bigger than his descending colon (you know, that seamy grotto where Lou Dobbs and Sean Hannity have spent the past two years fighting over the futon).
From Langer Research, which conducted the poll:
The keystone issue of the 2018 midterms may stick around to trouble Donald Trump in 2020: Americans by a 17-point margin say his handling of health care makes them more likely to oppose than to support him for a second term.
That result in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll marks one of many challenges for Trump as he seeks re-election. The Mueller report and his immigration policies are substantial negatives as well. As reported Friday, his overall popularity is low; just 39 percent approve of his work in office. And 55 percent flatly rule out voting for him next year.
Of course, there’s a lot of time left, but this is a good start. We have to keep the pressure on and, most importantly, vote for our nominee in 2020, no matter who she or he is. (And, psst, there’s a hint embedded in these results, too: Health care, health care, health care.)
