America’s money managers reportedly are pretty pleased with President Donald Trump.

So much so, they predicted him to win re-election next year in Barron’s spring 2018 Big Money poll of professional investors.

Sixty-seven percent of managers in the poll said they believe Trump will be re-elected in 2020, against 28% who expect a Democrat to win and 5% who picked neither party, Barron's reported.

Fifty-six percent expect former Vice President Joe Biden to be the Democrats’ nominee. Seven percent see Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders getting the Democrats’ nod, Barron's said.

"The managers’ had a somewhat different view about who should become president: 40% think Trump ought to win; 31% picked the yet-to-be-named Democratic candidate, and 13% favored Starbucks former CEO Howard Schultz, who is mulling an independent run, for the job," Barron's explained.

A plurality of Big Money managers believe that entitlement reform is the most urgent economic issue before Congress. Cutting other federal spending, and passing an infrastructure bill, are also high on their list, Barron's said. 

To be sure, Americans are least favorable toward a presidential candidate who’s a socialist or one who’s older than 75, according to a recent NBC/Wall Street Journal poll that said Trump’s approval rating ticked up in the past month.

Only 25 percent of respondents ranked “socialist” as a desirable trait for a candidate. Only 37 percent said “someone over 75” was desirable, according to the survey. More voters were accepting of candidates who were gay or lesbian, independent or under 40, Bloomberg said.

The poll comes as Democrats line up for a chance to take on Trump in the 2020 presidential election. The survey suggests that 41 percent of voters would definitely or probably vote for Trump in 2020, against 48 percent who said they would vote for the Democratic candidate.
