Major Poll Has Good News for Trump’s 2020 Chances

A new major poll found that President Trump has the highest approval numbers of his presidency and his chances of reelection are virtually the same as former President Barack Obama’s were at the same time in his presidency.

The Marist poll, conducted July 15-17 among over 1,300 Americans, 33% of whom identified as Democrats and 27% Republican, found that President Trump’s approval rating had risen to 44%; the highest previous number for Trump in the Marist poll was 43% in February 2019. 90% of Republicans approved of Trump’s performance, with 42% of independents agreeing and only 7% of Democrats.

39% of national adults said they would definitely vote for Trump in 2020, with a whopping 89% of Republicans agreeing they would vote for him. 33% of independents agreed. . .

And yet another crucial statistic that looks rosy for Trump: 52% of respondents said they approved of his handling of the economy. That compares quite well with Obama, who only reached that level until August 2009, seven months after he took office; after that, Obama never again reached that level, yet was reelected. . .

Age-wise, Trump was strongest with those between 39 and 54; 51% said they would definitely vote for him, as opposed to those aged 18-38, where only 23% agreed. 66% of Evangelical Christians said they would definitely vote for Trump. 55% of respondents from rural areas said they would vote for Trump, as opposed to only 31%of those from big cities.
