He carried the state in the 2016 General Election….
He would lose it if the vote was taken now…..
In a new poll, half of Pennsylvania’s registered voters say they plan to vote against President Donald Trump in the 2020 election, no matter who his opponent is.
Just over a quarter of voters plan to vote for him, no matter the opponent, according to results from a poll conducted by Franklin & Marshall Collegein partnership with PA Post.
Thirty-seven percent of respondents believe Trump is doing a good or excellent job as president. The president’s rating is similar to President Barack Obama’s rating in Pennsylvania at the same point in his presidency.
Trump narrowly won the commonwealth in 2016 and Pennsylvania is expected to be a key battleground state again in 2020.
Yost noted, to win again, Trump’s campaign will need to focus on some key demographic groups.
“He won white women in 2016. He’s going to need to win white women to win Pennsylvania again, and I think at the moment he’s having some difficulty with that group,” Yost said.
The survey shows both unity and divisions among Pennsylvania’s registered Democratic voters.
Former Vice President Joe Biden is the favorite among Democrats, with 28 percent saying they would vote for him if the election happened today.
He polls even higher among self-described moderate Democrats, with nearly half their support.
Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren came in at second place overall with 21 percent. She leads among self-described liberal Democrats; 31 percent say they support her.
Yost said Democrats rank honesty and integrity as top character traits they want in a presidential candidate.
“The thing that really stood out is half of them said the most important point of their vote is that they pick a candidate who can win,” he said.
Six in ten voters say it’s time for a change in 2020. Of those, 85 percent say they will vote against Donald Trump, no matter who ends up running against him…..
