Pollsters: Trump would beat 2020 liberal ‘decisively’

Top Democrat pollsters aren’t sure there’s a Democrat that can beat President Trump in 2020.
The Washington Examiner reports:
“Some people just know how to win,” said Zogby, who didn’t think Trump would make it out of the Republican primaries in 2016. After two years of polling on Trump, Zogby said that the president is emerging as an unusual non-politician who has confounded his critics and even his own party leaders by succeeding on an aggressive agenda that has pleased his supporters. He compares Trump to three former presidents, Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt, who entered office to shock from the ruling elite. “With all three there was sense by the elites that this was the end of the world,” said Zogby.
But like them, Trump has connected with many in the country by battling the ruling powers. In his latest John Zogby Strategies poll, 54 percent view Trump as one “who is fighting the Washington, D.C. establishment,” compared to 26 percent who view him as an insider. He revealed the results in his Forbes Magazine column. It is part of what Trump campaign pollster John McLaughlin called the president’s profile as the “blue collar billionaire,” a leader standing up to Washington, and last week NATO, for taxpayers and workers. “If you are a working class person, it feels to you that he is fighting for you,” McLaughlin said. “He’s their president.”
The president is already raking in an impressive fundraising haul, $88 million according to the New York Times. This means that unless it’s an experienced and well liked nominee that his opposition puts forth (Zogby thinks Vice President Biden could do so) then Democrats will have an uphill battle in 2020. More than the money, as Americans benefit from the economy’s drastic improvement, it becomes harder every day for the Democrats to convince voters to switch away from a successful president.
We can only hope Trump wins again. Liberals don’t have a clue how do anything except tax and spend, that hasn’t changed and won’t change.
I agree. Bill W.
I don’t know about they got their hatred for Trump pretty much perfected. But you’re right they have not a clue on how to run a city or town, much less a country.
“We can only hope Trump wins again. ”
We can only VOTE so that Trump wins again.
There, I fixed that for you. GO TRUMP MAGA !
Liberals always call me a liar when I tell them that. If it wasn’t so pathetic, liberals calling me a liar, it might be funny.
The Deep State is so corrupt and in all positions of the Government in the highest offices. We found that out with the FBI. President Trump is Hell bent on draining the swamp, and the corrupt politicians are in a frenzy, trying to find anything at all that would change the course of President Trump’s popularity with the American people. Every time the most heinous, evil, and corrupt politicians dare have the gall to get on the news and chastise everything our President does, it only makes Americans more determined to stand behind President Trump, and he will win in 2020. Shummer, Pelosi, Waters, and those behind the scenes pulling the strings to the Demoncrappy puppets, Soros, Clintons and BO will literally lose it when President Trump is overwhelmingly elected to a second term in 2020. The left with their “feigned outrage” at President Trump only continues to make President Trump more popular. I look forward to a Red Wave at Midterms.
No you are correct. All they know how to fabricate is poor over poor….
I have every confidence in President Trump winning again! He’s a FANTASTIC leader!!!!
I agree Irene Mills…….he is bringing our country back despite all the evil opposition he has been facing…….GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP AND MAY GOD BE GLORIFIED THRU HIM!!!!
No matter who they run, they will still run on free stuff and higher taxes. No way to win with that strategy.
They want all kinds of free stuff but when asked how they will pay for all of the freebies………crickets! They will abolish ICE So when Paul Ryan brought it to the floor to vote on it they all said they would vote no!!!
They will take the tax cuts that Trump just gave everyone!
And then RAISE the taxes!
These are just a few things that have been thrown out there from the left!
These people are Terrorists trying to harass and create riots and beat up cabinet members and Trump supporters!! They have lost all sense of reason they are melting down!
Pick on me, libs, cuzz I am not a gun free zone like all you sissies like!
Articles like this, in times like these, carry with them the very real danger of the Left producing someone or a cadre of someones who’s intent it is (and with sufficient means and political justification) to assassinate the president of the United States. The closer the elections get, with the potential of producing a re-election of Mr. Trump, the more dangerous and real the possibility will become
Nothing is beyond the possibilities of the democrat communist party.
Bill Williams, You don’t have to worry about Pres Trump. God said he raised him up to be President for TWO terms. GOD will not forsake Trump or the Nation. Let the Dem’s spend all the money they can, it will do them no good. God Said I believe it and for me that settles it!!!
Simply, President Trump is doing what he said he would do during the elections. The Democrats cannot stand it. Then we have the left media that tries at every opportunity to put him down. Sadly, too many still expect the government to take care of them from cradle to coffin and it the mix are the illegals that through their activist think that they have to right to violate our laws and cross our borders for the freebies. Enough, we need to get the wall completed and return some sense of law and order.
If they let you out of the womb (abortion) to the tomb early like they want to do to the elderly.
:Let the commies bring it on….I might be pushing 72 but liKe Toby said, I’m as good once as I ever was. The commies have no friggin chance . It’s that simple.
I’ve seen nothing from Democrats. No integrity, no honor, no love of country. No leadership, no ideas and no morals which match the majority of the American People. They LOVE to Complain, but never offer solutions which will work having a proven track record. They bang their fists, yell and call people names… at recent hearings, screaming like crazy drug addicts, out of order to their own House Rules. Joe Biden, the pervert old guy who makes little girls feel uncomfortable in front of TV cameras? REALLY? Contender for what, pedophile creepy guy of the year?
Trump tells you what he’ll do then does it! How refreshing for a politician, someone you can actually Trust.
The Dems have absolutely no one who can come close, their message is wrong and the politicians are , well just politicians who lie and cheat their way into politics and now “we the people” know this.
Finally we have a man who is beholden to no one except to the people, he does what he promises and we are informed by him and blogs and other people like ourselves, not the press or Congress, we don’t need the press anymore except to remind ourselves how bad they have become.
Kate, I don’t think the Prez is beholding to us,,,,He is ONE of us. When it comes to being a patriot we are of a kind with him. – MAGA . We will flatten the loosers (NWO Marxist democrat party) every time they are stupid enough to go toe to toe with us.
There is one thing of which there can me no doubt. We are the winners and we got the loosers on the run. God bless you, The rest of the American Patriots, and most especially God bless President Trump.
I believe what Herbert G. Chapman says GOD put him in to make sure that Jersualem was Made the capital of ISRAEL.
Wonderful president is president Donald J. Trump !
I thank God every day for you dear man.
You are who we are and what America was originated on.
Good men, like you, and good women, fighting to uphold the law that our
great nation was based on…keeping the wicked and immoral ones in check;
Saving our Constitution and putting a stop to those who want to destroy
and bankrupt our country.
Thank you sooooo much !
President Trump is the best thing to happen for America in years. Obama hates America and did everything he could to destroy it. Killary would have followed in his footsteps. Thank god for Trump
It matters not at all who President Trump thumps in 2020, because no one can take him down!
After Obama it will be a while before a democrat get elected president and longer before a non-white person gets elected and the democratic socialists/communists/muslims even longer, if people will read the U S Constitution, the Communist Manifesto and the UN Agenda 21 (they are online) before they vote, they will have important information in their heads. AND, another thing to remember there are people running for president that are not Constitutionally eligible, like Marco Rubio, and I also believe Cruz, Haley, Jindal and others, be vigilant Patriotic American Voters, it’s your children’s future you are setting up.
MAGA DAMMIT…..M-A-G-A !??
I cannot believe the depth of the corruption!! How people could have elected Obama twice and never even vetted him in as we have all of our presidents, as far as I know? I will never forget Michelle Obama at her husbands inauguration Saying, “ This is the first time I have been proud to be an American!!” I thought but for the grace of God she could have been born in Ruanda and been hacked to death as many were!! We are all blest to be born here which is why so many try to enter our country, both legally and illegally!! There are problems in every country, but, hopefully it does not come to the hating and disorderly conduct that People such as Maxine Waters calls for! She has become very rich while her district lives in poverty!! She has done nothing to help the people she calls her own much less the rest of the people in this country. She is nothing but a government FAT CAT living in a 4 million dollar mansion outside of the district she represents!! This whole thing is a big lie and has been starting back with Clinton’s and then the Obama so called administration!! Donald Trump is not a government elitist!! He is a person who this country has been good to and he knows it and he is trying his best to give back to the country that made life good for him!! At least he appreciates it which is more than I will say for those who are trying their best to stand in his way or stop him!! He has my vote in 2020 as he had in the last election!! Have you people never heard the saying, keep your friends close and your enemies closer?? The media has been the worst 2nd only to Maxine Waters the real racist
It is my opinion after looking at the polling results and errors that the Republican results were quite accurate, while the Democratic vote numbers are way out of whack, which indicates widespread cheating. If we can’t insure that our vote counts are true and not fake, then we can’t insure democracy. We have got to protect the vote counts. The votes can’t be changed by anyone outside the polling places, so it has to be the poll workers. But the Republican vote counts show no indication of foul play, while the Democratic votes show very high likelihoods of vote fraud. All fraud is from within the precincts and cannot be from the outside. Thus it is the Democratic poll workers who are cheating. And they CHEATED a great deal as judged by the analysis of the results.
My concern is that the liberal elite and Democratic Party will become so desperate (they are already well on the way) that they will try to trash the stock market and the economy in their attempt to keep him from getting reelected. The elite does not like it when they do not have their way, particularly megalomaniacs like George Soros. The elites are obsessed and have an insatiable thirst for money and power and will go to extraordinary means to keep control.
Trump is doing a great job and barring a economic disaster will easily win reelection because unlike the last three presidents (partly Obama, an utter disaster) he is helping all the people, not just the special interest groups that the politicians like to cater or bow to.
Don’t sell ’em short just yet. I believe there is a plan in the making and feel free to call me dumbass. I believe we will see three names on the democrat candidate list. #1 Joe Biden, #2, Michelle Obama, and #3 Eric Holder. I believe this plan is to get Barack Obama back into the white house as vice president where he will again run things as before, if it works. An announcement will be made that Obama will be the chosen vice and he will campaign just like he is running for the top job. Don’t forget how he managed to con the voters before. If I am right we will see who the better president is, Trump or Obama, from the voters decision. I still pick President Trump but I believe this is their plan.
I don’t doubt it, Bill, but do all Americans want to go back to Shovel-ready jobs, cash for clunkers, Obama’s total transparency (sarc), bowing to muslims, the police acted stupidly, weak kneed foreign policy, Bengazi, etc., all hallmarks of the O’vomit admin!
Bill Cash, that makes a lot of sense, and I believe there’s a lot to what you say. The only thing I wonder about is how much credit you have given to Barack Obama for “running things”. He is definitely charismatic, charming, persuasive, and he masterfully conned the voters … just as a good community organizer would do! But, as far as “running things”, I believe that he was a puppet of Valerie Jarrett, who is a huge cog in the wheel of the deeply rooted and entrenched Chicago Machine. She had been grooming him to run for president since his days as Illinois state senator because of his charisma. I personally don’t think Barack Obama can govern his way out of a paper sack, but he was selected by the Democrat party as one who was smooth, persuasive, and (most importantly to them, sad to say) black. They seem to want to be the “first” of everything. The first black president (how can anyone disparage him without being “racist”??), the first woman president (how can anyone disparage her – Hillary – without being “sexist”??) They have no core values, they only want to advance their own agenda by intimidation and guilt.
There is no doubt in my mind that President Trump will win again, hands down!
Bill , you are not a dumbass, but you are wrong. – Doprah or Rosie would be better choices then those loosers and they don’t have a snowflakes chance in the VFW parking lot’s chance of winning. Hell, Mousie has come out and said many times that she hates America. They might as well run the cackling witch again.
No chance, get it, No friggin chance.
I said that exact same thing the other day about Trump running for VP in 2024….But I dont think its possible…Anyway i got the deer in the headlights look….ha!
President Trumps edge is that he is NOT playing by standard political rules, ie. tell you constituents what ever they want to hear and keep your own personal plans and goals to your self and have been elected. Then lie, lie, lie! It has been the Democratic way for decades.
After all the work Dianne Feinstein has done for California, Dems want to kick her to the curb because she isn’t progressive enough.
In 2016 Donald breached the left on voting day with 306 Electoral votes. In 2020 our President Trump will receive over 400 Electoral votes causing the deep state in DC to collapse and blow away in the wind as they did in 1776.
Best president ever…But some of our Republican so called “leaders” in Dc are beyond distasteful. But having said that I will walk through burning broken glass to vote R straight across the board in Nov…
You better believe it. President Trump will win in 2020. These Democrats screwed themselves with all of this Anti-Trump lies and combat against the President for 2 and a half years. The American people are not blind or stupid. We can see all that these evil Democrats are doing and have done.
Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt… Not bad company, but appropriate. Thank you, President Trump!
MY KIND OF PRESIDENT
I am aware that by writing this, I will be called a dumb and stupid supporter of President Donald Trump.
Honestly, I do not care.
I am very disappointed that people treat the president in such a horrible way. The derogatory language used against the president is shocking. He is daily mocked for no valid reason at all. He is being picked on for his hairstyle, governing style, Russian meddling in our internal matters. Accurate or not, we should not be indulging in this type of conduct no matter what. Moreover, they are not crucial enough to waste our energies and resources. How does it matter what his hairstyle is or the way he communicates. We should be focusing on the superb performance he has shown in the last 16 months that he has been in the office. Let me highlight some of his achievements, in case people have forgotten:
1 Taking steps to make Korean peninsula nuclear-free zone. Whether he eventually succeeds or not is not essential. He has brought the world at the doorstep of peace. Instead of ridiculing him all the time, work with him, pray for him and encourage him so that he can achieve this significant breakthrough.
I am distressed at Mr Schummer and MsPelosi.They are constant complainers. Their negativity is unbelievable. They would instead destroy the country rather than acknowledging the successes of the president.
2 Took China head-on, on the South China Sea, trade, and military
3 Dealing with Taiwan without China
4 Appointment of conservative judges to Supreme Court
5 Economy- More jobs, more productivity, Dow on the rise,
Direct foreign investment into the US from US companies
as well as external entities
6 Improvements in Veteran Affairs
7 Tremendous progress in Immigration
8 Removing all the irrelevant regulations
9 Made NATO members pay more for their defence
10 Bring some sanity to trade with our allies by using tariff provisions.
These are the few of many accomplishments to his credit.
Acknowledge them and thank the president. Your integrity and character lie in such acceptance.
I reject Democrats. They are not happy when the president achieves something good for the country. They are delighted at the president’s problems, e.g. Russian investigation. They are so ticked off at losing the elections in 2016 that they would do anything to make the life of the president difficult. They are not helping in the confirmation process of various judges and other federal appointments. They are a stumbling block in anything that the president wishes to do.

What currently passes as the Democrat party has not changed its name and still adheres to many of its old, time worn slogans. But the actual Democrat party of sixty years ago has disappeared. It doesn’t exist any more. Besides the name and some slogans the only other thing that remains is that it is still the party of tax and spend.
President and The Media
Just a couple of years ago, nobody could ever have imagined that the media would report anything but the facts. It was inconceivable.
In the seventies/ eighties, the media was considered credible. There were distinguished hosts like Peter Jennings, Tom Brokaw, Dan Rather. These hosts brought honesty with them on the screen. They were trusted wholeheartedly. Their loyal audience loved their professionalism and their effort to stick with facts with no opinion of their own and also no guest speakers to give legitimacy to their reporting.
Today’s reporting is not only distasteful it is manipulative. It is so dishonest that sometimes one wonders how these people are allowed to get away with such blatant lies. CNN, MSNBC, CBS are biased against the president. Their comments, guest speakers, opinions mainly focus on all the negatives, perceived or real, of the president. Their main talking point is to talk all rubbish against the president.
There were positive developments in the country, e.g. Tax Act 2018. Everybody was excited about it because this act has the potential to become an economy booster. However, the media will not discuss those positives. Instead, they will rake up the issue as to who paid Stormy Daniels $ 130K some twenty years ago, whether Mike Cohen would cooperate with the investigation. One can see the contempt and disappointment on the faces of Chris Mathews, Don Lemon for getting something good for the president. One can feel it. They are so desperate to get some news which is detrimental to the president. Is this reporting?. Third world countries’ reporters will do better. Manipulating public opinion not based on facts but only on political affiliations by the media is not only crummy; it clearly shows the lack of integrity and character. So much so, they are willing to do the disservice to the country as long as it harms the intended target- The president.
Recently, at the nomination of Judge Bret Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court by the president, Democrat Senator Durbin said the Democrats would oppose the nomination even if they lose midterm elections. Mid-. House Minority leader, Nancy Pelosi, said that she would avenge the treatment given to Obama in 2016 for not confirming Justice Merrick Garland. Their thinking proves two things. 1 These Democrats do not have the maturity needed to govern and 2) They have no qualms if they damage our country by their despicable conduct as long as the president is out of the office.
They have to oppose everything the president does. Plain and simple. They hate the president because he won the 2016 elections and Hillary Clinton lost. They cannot seem to get over it.
Their main agenda, during President Trump’s presidency, whether 4 or 8 years, is to stay focused on the following. It does not matter whether these issues are relevant or not.
a Mueller Investigation
b Stormy Daniels
c How to dislodge the president from the WhiteHouse
d Not Holding/delaying the confirmation hearings of the president’s nominees for various judicial positions
They have no tax plan, economic plan, strategy to deal with Russia, China and hosts of other domestic and foreign issues
Bernie Sanders wants to give the free school and college education to all Americans. Also, also free health care, distribute rich peoples’ money to not so precious. How they are going to finance these programs?. We should not ask them because they do not know or care. They are totally clueless
That is not important to them. Open immigration, sanctuary cities are very critical because these establish their voter base. They have no plan for the country. They have become obstructionists. They are just interested in power
There is a pearl of wisdom which says that if one cannot beat an enemy, join him.
1 This action by the Democrats will be complimented
2 There will be an atmosphere of co-operation and trust
3 The Republicans will remember this, and they will support any agenda
Of the Democrats in the future.
4 Our country will move on to good and better things.
Lastly, there are some views on personalities. Bill Maher, Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert, Alec Baldwin make their living by making fun of the president. We miss David Letterman, Johnny Carson, Arsenio Hall. They had class, a tremendous sense of humour and they did not make personal attacks to make their living. Kathy Griffin thinks that by showing the president’s head covered in blood is funny. What a sick sense of humour. This conduct shows Kathy’s upbringing. Same goes for Rachel Maddow. Her passion is to spill out maximum venom possible at anything connected with the president.

President Trump is doing what has been needed for a long time, running this country like a business.God bless President Trump! He is doing this for all of us and for free.
