According to a Politico/Morning Consult poll released Wednesday, Donald Trump will lose a a hypothetical 2020 election to an “unknown” Democrat, but would beat Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren if she ran.
When asked to choose between Trump or Warren, 42% said they would vote for Trump, while 36% chose Warren. Twenty-two percent said they did not know or did not have an opinion.
When asked if they would vote for Trump or the unnamed Democrat, 35% said they would probably vote for Trump, while 43% said they would probably pick the Democrat. Twenty-three percent said they did not know or have an opinion.
Pollsters also found that 35% of voters said they strongly disapprove of the job Trump is doing as commander in chief, compared to 28% who said they strongly approve of the job the president is doing.
Kyle Dropp, chief research officer and co-founder of Morning Consult, said:
“Most presidents experience a honeymoon period in their first few months. It looks like Trump’s is ending. The slate of bad news for the administration is catching up to him, although it’s important to note that his approval rating remains sky-high among people who voted for him in November.”
A majority of voters, 60 percent, think the country is on the wrong track, while 40 percent said things are moving in the right direction.
The poll was conducted on Feb. 9 and 10, surveying 1,791 registered voters. It has a margin of error of 2 percentage points.
