His numbers are bigly.
They just may not be in the direction he would like them to be. The latest Monmouth University Poll is not exactly embracing President Trump, and if this climate holds until 2020, the Trumplican Party could be staring down the barrel of epic defeat.
Among those things the poll explored, there was the question of whether the nation would be better with somebody else at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
The majority polled think so.
According to the numbers, 36 percent of Americans polled are fine with Trump in office through the 2020 election.
On the other hand, 59 percent think it’s time to cut bait and try somebody else.
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.
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.
And yes. I get it, We hear all the time about how beloved Trump is, but that’s pretty much only among his MAGA cult fanatics. Democrats, Independents, Never Trump conservatives, and some of the more mainstream Republicans see the damage done to the party and the nation, and they’re feeling the need to cancel the reality TV presidency, come the 2020 election.
Politics being as it is, we can’t overlook that for Democrats, at least, it’s not really so much a case of “saving the nation” as it is their own quest for control of the White House. That’s just the way it is with our current political climate.
For the rest of the voting public, however, it is a tangible concern connected to Trump’s inability to control his impulses, his devotion to foreign dictators, and his disregard for our laws or anything related to sound governance.
Replacing Trump, while politics-as-usual for the Democrats, is high priority for some others, who see another four years of the clown show as unhealthy for the nation.
So who would replace him?
Of course, Democrats have a growing list of potentials.
Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), as well as former Vice President Joe Biden and Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.).Among those who are could make up a crowded field of candidates are Sens.
I wouldn’t vote for any of these people.
To be fair, Trump has been attacking these people a lot longer than just recent weeks. He’s in perpetual campaign mode, filing for reelection on the same day he was inaugurated. He’s assuming that what worked in 2016 would still work in 2020.
There has also been some talk of Trump’s former opponent, Hillary Clinton, making another run for the office.
She is the candidate who will not go away, and if Democrats are so dumb that they would allow her to be their candidate again, they don’t deserve to win.
Personally, you can count me among those conservatives that would love to see an independent conservative candidate step forward and really challenge the “Big Two.”
The poll sampled 802 American voters, from November 9 to 12, and has a margin of error of 3.5 percent.
