POLL: 43% Of GOP Voters Want 2020 Trump Challenger

The Associated Press reports:

More than 4-in-10 Republicans want a GOP candidate to challenge President Donald Trump in the 2020 primary, according to a new survey that calls into question the likelihood of success of his reelection campaign. A Monmouth University poll released Monday found that 43 percent of Republican voters said they would like to see Trump face off against another Republican, while 49 percent said they would like to see him run unopposed.

Despite supporting a contested primary, those same Republicans said they would vote for Trump if he was challenged by either Texas Sen. Ted Cruz or former Ohio Gov. John Kasich. In a hypothetical race between Trump and Cruz, the respondents said they would vote for Trump 43 percent to 37 percent. Between Trump and Kasich, that number would increase to 47 percent versus 33 percent for Kasich.
