A new Monmouth University poll found that just 37% of voters say that Trump should be reelected with 59% wanting someone new.
Just 37% Think Trump Should Be Reelected
According to the Monmouth University Poll, “Trump’s overall job rating stands at 41% approve and 50% disapprove, which is similar to his 40% to 52% rating in May. Over the past 12 months, the president’s approval rating has ranged between 40% and 44% while his disapproval rating has ranged between 49% and 54%. Fewer than 4-in-10 registered voters (37%) say that Trump should be reelected in 2020. A majority of 59% say it is time to have someone new in the Oval Office. Last month, his reelection support stood at 37% to 60%. These results are consistent with prior polls that ranged from 37% to 38% for reelection and 57% to 58% for someone new. [Note: the poll was conducted before the president’s official reelection campaign launch on Tuesday.]”
Voters want to vote Trump out, not impeach him
The same Monmouth Poll also found, “The poll finds that 35% of Americans feel that Trump should be impeached and compelled to leave the presidency while 59% disagree with this course of action. Support for the president’s removal via impeachment ranged between 36% and 42% from July 2017 to May 2019. The current result is numerically lower but statistically similar to those results. Opposition to impeachment ranged between 53% and 59% during the same time.”
Impeachment plays well with Democratic primary voters, but no well with the nation at large.
An overwhelming majority of voters want someone new in the White House. Donald Trump believes that he run the same campaign that ran in 2016, but he is even less popular as a president than he was as a candidate. Nearly 60% of the country is sick of Trump and ready to move on.
It is up to Democrats to make that desire a reality.
