2020 Poll: Trump Trails Generic Dem By Eight Points

Politico reports:

The 2020 presidential election is still two and a half years away, but President Donald Trump’s path to a second term is littered with roadblocks, according to a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll.

Just 36 percent of voters say they would vote for Trump over a generic Democratic candidate in 2020, compared with 44 percent who would pick the Democrat, the poll shows. One in five voters, 20 percent, are undecided.

While 86 percent of Democratic voters would support the Democratic candidate, 79 percent of GOP voters would vote for Trump. Among independents, the Democratic candidate has an 8-point lead, 36 percent to 28 percent — an advantage that’s only barely statistically significant given the larger margin of sampling error for subgroups.
