Only half of Republican voters support President Donald Trump's renomination, according to a poll conducted by Tony Fabrizio, who has worked in the past as Trump's pollster.

The number does rise to 54 percent supporting the president among those certain to vote in a presidential primary, The Washington Post noted, but points out those are weak numbers for a president in his first year.

President Barack Obama had the renomination support of 64 percent of Democrats in November 2010, just after the party had lost all control of Congress to Republicans in that year's midterms.

Among those polled by Fabrizio, 24 percent supported either Texas Sen. Ted Cruz or Ohio Gov. John Kasich, two opposites on the GOP spectrum, but also the final two challengers to Trump in the 2016 primaries. Two percent backed either Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse or Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton, and 24 percent were undecided.

Still, even those who are undecided on Trump in 2020 blame most of the inaction in D.C. on Congress, not the president.

Fabrizio himself responded to critics on Twitter, saying the poll, which was not commissioned by Trump, was still "a good thing," considering Trump was leading four major opponents by as much as 4-1. In the Obama polls from 2010, he was pitted only against then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
