(Washington Times) Despite non-stop challenges from political rivals and a hostile news media, President Trump can consider some promising poll numbers of particular interest to conservatives, Republicans and faithful Trump fans. The numbers, though not necessarily bell-ringers, suggest the public is warming to the Trump way of doing things.
“With the midterm election in the books, voters are shifting their attention to the presidential election in 2020 and are growing more convinced that there’s a second term in sight for the 45th president,” says a new Rasmussen Reports analysis, which conducted a new survey Nov. 7 — just 24 hours after the Election Day.
It found that 47 percent of all U.S. voters believe that it is “likely Trump will be re-elected in 2020,” a finding which is up by 8 percentage points since August. There’s are negative aspects with lesser impact: 29 percent think the president will be defeated by the Democratic nominee in 2020, while 16 percent say Mr. Trump will be impeached and convicted before finishing a full term in the White House.
