2020 Jitters: Majority of Democrats “Scared” of Trump Reelection
A new poll has found that 55 percent of Democrats are “scared” of a Trump 2020 victory.
The poll–conducted by Fox News–simply asked voters how they would feel if President Trump won reelection.
The Washington Times points out:
Exactly 30% reported they would be “scared.” That number includes 55% of Democrats, 27% of independents and 4% of Republicans.
But wait, 21% also said they would be “enthusiastic,” the poll found. That includes 44% of Republicans, 7% of independents and 4% of Democrats. Another 20% said they would be “displeased” if Mr. Trump won, a feeling shared by 5% of Republicans, 27% of independents and 30% of Democrats.
These numbers actually work in the president’s favor, according to Fox News analyst Dana Blanton.
“More voters would be enthusiastic if Trump were to win reelection than felt that way in 2016 — and fewer would be scared. The share of those feeling enthusiastic is up 8 points since October 2016 overall and up 18 among Republicans. The number of voters feeling scared is down 16,” said Blanton.
President Trump is set to announce his reelection tomorrow with a highly anticipated rally in Orlando, FL and supporters began lining up for the event almost two full days in advance.
