As Democrats continue with their attacks on President Trump, a new WaPo/ABC News poll shows that the President has actually GAINED ground since the fall.
This surely has to be making Democrats very nervous.
As the impeachment trial of President Trump in the U.S. Senate continues—going largely ignored by the American public—a Washington Post/ABC News poll shows that, instead of hurting him, Democrats’ efforts over the last few months may have actually helped Trump.
In an article with the headline “Trump begins reelection year more competitive against Democrats than he was three months ago,” the Washington Post reports:
President Trump begins his reelection year in a more competitive position than he was in last fall against potential Democratic challengers, aided by rising approval for his handling of the economy, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll.
To make matters worse for the Democrats, Americans’ concern over the economy is better than it was in 2016 (when Trump was elected).
Despite Americans’ concerns that the economic system favors the wealthy, the latest Post-ABC poll finds that fewer than half are worried about maintaining their own standard of living, a shift from 2016, when most expressed concern about losing their financial footing.
Head-to-head match-ups that showed Trump losing to leading Democrats by double digits have evaporated.
The close matchups between Trump and Democrats among registered voters represent a contrast with an October Post-ABC poll in which Biden, Sanders, Warren and Buttigieg all held double-digit advantages over the incumbent. (Bloomberg and Klobuchar were not tested against Trump in that poll.)
It seems that, no matter what tricks they try pulling out from up their collectivist sleeves, Democrat tactics seem to backfire on them.
