Only 36 Percent Would Vote For Trump In 2020

Public opposition to tax bill grows as vote approaches


The new CNN poll of 1,001 respondents was conducted between December 14 and 17.

Other polls appear to show rising support for Democrats.

Seventy-six percent of voters described their own financial situation as "excellent" or "good", according to a Quinnipiac poll and 63 percent and say the nation's economy is "excellent" or "good".

This latest poll comes as many have predicted a so-called "blue wave" in 2018, where Democratic candidates could possibly seize control of both the House and Senate.

According to the poll, 56 percent of respondents said they are most likely to vote Democrat in the midterm elections, while just 38 percent said they were likely to vote Republican.

Democrats are more enthusiastic about the upcoming midterm elections, the poll report said.

A new poll conducted by NBC News and the Wall Street Journal found that most Americans want President Donald Trump out of the White House sooner than later.

That's a significant drop from the 45% approval rating that Trump had in March, shortly after taking office.

The November 21 national poll found 60% of US women say they've been sexually harassed; Trump job approval still stuck below 40%.

Breaking down the data, the poll found that 18 percent of respondents said they would definitely vote for Trump's re-election while another 18 percent believed they would probably support the incumbent commander in chief.

In fact, the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center finds that only 5 percent of taxpayers would pay more in taxes by 2018 under the legislation, although that number grows to 53 percent by 2027 because numerous individual tax cuts expire after 2025.

Doug Jones's victory in deep-red Alabama only further fueled speculation of that wave, and this new poll indicating a historic lead on the generic ballot will likely have a similar effect.

That is the Democrats' first lead on this question in the poll since February 2013 (right after Barack Obama's second inauguration) and their largest advantage on the economy since July 2009 (months into Obama's first year as president).

A scant 18% of people surveyed said they would "definitely" support Trump if he runs in 2020. It has a margin of error of 3.6 percentage points.
