With the 2020 presidential election’s primary season playing out, many voters across the nation already have their predictions set for the ultimate outcome in November. Of course, these predictions vary and are not necessarily connotative of future events to come. However, they do provide insight into the minds, perspectives, and at least some of the forthcoming votes from people in America.
Right now, 2020 Democrat candidates are in the middle of duking it out with one another. With the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire primary done, contenders have moved on to South Carolina. The performances in various states across America will significantly impact candidates’ chances of winning their party’s nomination and facing President Trump.
Be that as it may, however, data from a newly released Monmouth University poll shows that roughly two-thirds of American voters believe that Trump will win a second term in office this November.
Taking a Look at the Numbers
Per Monmouth University’s findings, 66% of voters in this country maintain that the likelihood of the incumbent president winning re-election is either “probable” or “definite.” By contrast, only 28% of American voters maintain that Trump will “probably” or “definitely” be made a one-term president by whoever the Democrat nominee is.
Interestingly enough, the belief that Trump will win a second term in office is not mutually exclusive to partisanship, although attitudes towards this prospect most certainly are. 93% of the GOP views a Trump 2020 victory as “probable” or “definite,” while only 11% of Democrats believe their chosen nominee will “definitely” succeed in beating the president.
Now there are a series of factors impacting the aforementioned poll findings. According to Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute, the impeachment sham and disastrous Democrat Iowa caucus are the leading factors. Murray declared that impeachment proceedings engendered higher ratings for Trump, whereas the failure in Iowa didn’t “inspire confidence” in Democrats’ ability to take on the president.
Findings for Monmouth University’s poll were gathered from 827 voters between February 6 through the 9th.
A Sign of the Times
The numbers seen above are quite clear and they also speak volumes. While Democrats may hate the president, even a significant faction of folks within their own ranks believe that Trump will win re-election.
During the New Hampshire primary debate, Democrat candidate Tom Steyer spent a fair amount of time ranting on stage, visibly fuming and telling his rivals that Trump may win a second term. Steyer stated that Democrats ought to target the president on the economy in order to have a better chance of defeating him. However, what Steyer and other leftists fail to realize is that their economic and fiscal policies won’t ever hold up against those of President Trump’s.
The statements provided by Monmouth University’s Patrick Murray also further highlighted how Democrats dug their own grave with the weakest, thinnest, and most rushed impeachment sham.
