Forty-three percent of Americans are ready to vote for a nameless Democrat in 2020, while only 35 percent would cast their ballots for President Trump, a new Politico/Morning Consult poll reveals.
Here are highlights of the survey:
- 42 percent of those polled would vote to reelect Trump in 2020 if he ran against Sen. Elizabeth Warren, while 36 percent supported the Massachusetts Democrat.
- 60 percent say things in the country are going in the wrong direction, while 40 percent say things are headed on the right track.
- 32 percent say Trump will go down in history as either an outstanding president or an above average president. 9 percent say he will be remembered as an average president, while 46 percent say he will be thought of as a below average or poor president.
- 49 percent approve of the job Trump is doing as president, compared to 45 percent who do not.
"Most presidents experience a honeymoon period in their first few months. It looks like Trump's is ending," Morning Consult Co-Founder and Chief Research Officer Kyle Dropp tells Politico.
"The slate of bad news for the administration is catching up to him, although its important to note that his approval rating remains sky-high among people who voted for him in November."
Here is how the rest of the poll breaks down:
- 37 percent say it is appropriate for the president to criticize a judge's ruling, while 55 percent said it was inappropriate.
- 61 percent say Trump should avoid criticizing specific companies, 27 percent say such behavior is acceptable.
- 21 percent have a favorable view of Trump's top adviser Steve Bannon, while 33 percent have an unfavorable opinion of him.
The poll of 1,791 registered voters has a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points, Politico notes.
