Most U.S. voters believe President Trump will be reelected in November, a Monmouth University Poll released Tuesday revealed.
The survey, taken February 6-9, 2020, among 827 registered voters, showed that the majority, 66 percent, believe that Trump will “definitely” or “probably” be reelected in November, whereas 28 percent say he will “definitely” or “probably” lose.
Republicans are brimming with confidence, with 59 percent indicating that Trump’s reelection is “definite” and 34 percent saying it is “probable” for a grand total of 93 percent. The survey shows hesitancy among Democrats. Only 11 percent believe their candidate will “definitely” defeat the president, while 44 percent say he or she probably will beat Trump.
The survey also asked a subset of 357 Democrat and Democrat-leaning individuals to choose their first choice candidate among the Democrats in the current primary field.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) enjoys a double-digit lead, with 26 percent support to Joe Biden’s (D) 16 percent support — a 14 point drop from the 30 percent support the former vice president saw in January.
Pete Buttigieg (D) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) tied for third place with 13 percent support each, and Michael Bloomberg (D) followed closely behind with 11 percent support.
Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Andrew Yang (D) followed with six percent and four percent, respectively. The margin of error is +/- 5.2 percent.
In the end we all must digest what Monmouth University Polling Institute director Patrick Murray said:
While most voters want to see Trump turned out of office, his steady ratings through the entire impeachment process and memories of how 2016 turned out suggest that few are willing to bet against him.
