It’s still VERY early to be running polls for the 2020 Presidential race, especially since we have no idea who is going to challenge President Trump in the general election. Or if he’ll even still be in office to run again by that time.
The economy and jobs will all factor in as well and no one can predict what might happen over the next year and a half with those.
But a recent Fox News poll doesn’t show very good numbers for the President – just 39 percent of voters believe he will be reelected.
How do things look for President Trump’s re-election? Thirty-nine percent of voters think he will be re-elected, according to a new Fox News poll. For comparison, former President Obama’s re-elect number was 29 percent at this same point in his presidency (December 2010).
The survey also finds 38 percent would vote to re-elect President Trump if the election were today, up a touch from 35 percent who said the same in January.
In addition, 30 percent say they would definitely vote to re-elect Trump, up from 22 percent in January. At the other end of the spectrum, 47 percent say they will definitely vote for someone else. That was 48 percent at the beginning of the year.
That produces a net negative of 17 points on “definite” vote. Obama had a net negative of 13 points on the definitely re-elect question at around this stage of his presidency.
One notable difference: less than 1 in 10 voters gave the economy positive marks in late 2010, while five times as many (47 percent) rate it positively today.
