The current President of the United States, Donald Trump, is fragile and may even give up the race for the 2020 presidential elections if he believes he has no chance of winning against his rival Joe Biden, according to statements by a Party member. Republican provided to ‘Fox News’.
“If polls continue to get worse, it is possible to equate a scenario in which (Trump) gives up,” a member of the Republican Party told Fox News, on condition of anonymity.
These statements come from Trump’s favorite news channel, which cites several members of the Republican Party who are very concerned about the prospects for the American leader’s re-election, due to the weak numbers of the latest polls.
Joe Biden, his rival and Democratic candidate, currently has an average advantage of nine points over the current president, according to a RealClearPolitics poll tracker.
Trump has lost support from older voters, who are normally a strong foundation of the Republican Party and an age group that was crucial in his 2016 victory. The current United States leader is also behind Biden in almost every American state. , according to the assessment made so far.
Charles Gasparino, the author of the Fox News report, said in a series of tweets that he had spoken to “major players” in the Republican party. One of them described Trump’s state of mind as “fragile”, as the chances of getting a second term seem increasingly distant.
Trump has participated in several polls that show that he is far behind Biden, but not by very large margins. In particular, the polls showed high levels of disapproval for the way the current president manages the response to the virus and also for the reaction to the death of George Floyd.
A recent Washington Post poll found that 36% of American adults approve of Trump’s reaction to racial equality protests, while 62% disapprove. In another New York Times-Siena College, 58% of Americans disapprove of the response given to the coronavirus outbreak, while only 38% approve. These are the worst figures since the crisis began.
Yet Trump posted a tweet on Monday, saying that he is “taking the latest figures very well” and that “New York Times polls are false”.
Sorry to inform the Do Nothing Democrats, but I am getting VERY GOOD internal Polling Numbers. Just like 2016, the @nytimes Polls are Fake! The @FoxNews Polls are a JOKE! Do you think they will apologize to me & their subscribers AGAIN when I WIN? People want LAW, ORDER & SAFETY!
