Bad news, gang. According to the latest polling data from Fox News, President Donald Trump could be headed for a loss in 2020 if he doesn't turn things around soon.
From Fox News:
With just 441 days until Election Day, Donald Trump faces political peril and economic woes. That is a deadly combination for any politician, but especially for this president.
Start with the latest Fox News Poll that shows Trump losing to the top four Democratic candidates for president. He loses to Joe Biden by 12 points (50 percent to 38 percent), Bernie Sanders by nine (48-39), Elizabeth Warren by seven (46-39), and Kamala Harris by six (45-39). Not only does Trump lose, but his numbers are also stuck in the high 30s. The president has only broken out of the 30s on this measure once since 2015, when he hit 40 percent in March 2019.
"Not good," as Trump would say.
And there's more bad news for the President: his favorability rating is underwater as well.
Trump is viewed unfavorably by 56 percent of voters, roughly one point lower than his worst rating of 57 percent in October 2017. In addition, 59 percent are dissatisfied with the way things are going in the country. And 46 percent state that the tariffs Trump imposed are hurting the economy.
Fortunately, it's not ALL bad news for the President! Actually, yes it is.
A whopping 59 percent of voters think Trump is tearing the country apart, and women voters have turned on him in dramatic numbers.
From Fox News:
Trump’s job disapproval rating with women is 59 percent overall. It's 52 percent among white women and 77 percent with non-white women. He has a 60 percent disapproval rating with women under 45 years old and 53 percent with women over 45. Trump’s disapproval rating with women who make less than $50,000 is 59 percent and 54 percent with women who make more than $50,000. Independent women voters disapprove of Trump by 64 percent and suburban women disapprove of Trump by 61 percent.
As you might expect, Trump is a little more than frustrated - not with the poll, apparently, but with Fox News. The President told reporters on Sunday, “There’s something going on at Fox [News], I’ll tell you right now. And I'm not happy with it.”
Trump added that he didn’t “believe” the poll, asserting: “Fox has changed. My worst polls have always been from Fox.”
On the same day that the Fox News Poll was released, Trump made his case for reelection at a rally in Manchester, NH, telling supporters: “You have no choice but to vote for me or your 401k is going down the tubes... Love me or hate me.”
Editor's note: So just overlook that little three straight week's of massive losses in the DOW, S&P 500, and NASDAQ, and a dramatic 800 point selloff in the DOW last Wednesday? Yessir, keep that trade war with China a hummin'. Trump 2020, ya'll!
