In a hypothetical 2020 presidential run, Trump fails when it comes to several potential opponents that have shown interest in running.
According to a new poll, Trump trails Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and Senator Kamala Harris by double digits in a potential 2020 presidential race. The poll shows Trump trailing by 13 points to Obama, 12 points with Oprah, and 10 points with Harris. He’s also down nine points to Senator Amy Klobuchar, six points to Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, and by five points to his 2016 opponent, Hillary Clinton.
Trump also trails several female candidates in these hypothetical races, although by a much slimmer margin according to the Axios poll conducted by SurveyMonkey.
The closest race would be between Trump and Senator Elizabeth Warren, spelling trouble for her supposed interest in possibly running in 2020. In this hypothetical scenario, Warren only leads by two points.
The poll also found that Trump’s favorability rating hovers at 40 percent, putting him at a disadvantage against candidates such as Obama and Oprah, who have approval ratings of 62 and 55 percent.
The results of the poll were aired on Sunday night on HBO and are based on two separate surveys; one was conducted on October 24 through the 28th, among 3,411 adults with a margin of error of 2.5 percentage points. The second survey was conducted October 28 through the 30th among 6,497 adults and has a margin of error of 1.5 percentage points.
Right now Democrats hold a 13 point lead over Republicans among likely voters on a generic congressional ballot. According to a poll conducted by CNN and SSRS, 55 percent of likely voters favor the Democratic candidate while 42 percent of likely voters prefer the GOP candidate.
The survey’s release comes just one day before the midterms, as Democrats attempt to retake control of the House and possibly the Senate.
These are real numbers by real people, and it seems like the Democrats may be in a position to win. Remember to vote on Tuesday, November 6.
