2020 ApprovalRating DonaldTrump Monmouth

Poll: Nearly 60 percent of Americans want a new president in 2020

Of course, most of us want a new president now, but I’ll settle for 2020 if I have to.

Then again — Robert Mueller, if you’re listening, here’s the ideal strategy: Take out both Trump and Pence after the new Congress is seated. I just want to see how many full head rotations Sean Hannity can pull off after Nancy Pelosi is sworn in as president. I put the over/under at three.

From The Hill:

Roughly 60 percent of Americans said in a new poll that they don't want to see President Trump re-elected in 2020.

The Monmouth University Poll found that 36 percent of Americans support Trump's second term, while 59 percent indicated they want to see someone new in the White House after the next presidential election.

Sixteen percent of Republicans said they would rather have a new president, according to the poll, compared to 92 percent of Democrats and 59 percent of independents said the same.

Say, who are the 8 percent of Democrats who are just fine with this anthropomorphic couch stain continuing to soil the Oval Office for another six years? That 84 percent of Republicans who want to keep him doesn’t surprise me that much. Most Republicans have Stockholm syndrome at this point. But come on. Are these all Democrats who once voted for George Wallace and have simply been too lazy to change their registrations anytime in the past 40 years?

Trump's approval rating has consistently hovered in the low 40 percent range in Monmouth's polling. This month's survey found 43 percent of respondents approve of the president, while 49 percent disapprove. Those figures are largely unchanged from an August poll.

This is good news, particularly since Trump pulled out the big Willie Horton guns and still got slapped down during the midterms. But anything can happen in two years. So let’s convince that 8 percent, shall we?
