President Donald Trump’s poll numbers are in free-fall because of his government shutdown, and now a new poll shows that his re-election chances in 2020 are also going down, down, down.
As the government shutdown draws near its fifth week, voters across the country know exactly who to blame, and it’s not the Democrats.
Trump took full credit for the shutdown in December during a televised Oval Office meeting with Democrats, and despite his desperate effort to shift the blame on them, it’s clear that Americans understand he is to blame. And that’s not good for Trump or the Republicans in 2020.
In fact, a new poll shows that nearly two-thirds of registered voters will not vote for Trump in 2020 compared to just 30 percent who say they will, a 27 point spread that even got Kellyanne Conway’s husband to point it out on Twitter.
About 57% of registered voters said they will “definitely vote against” Trump in 2020, according to a new pollhttps://t.co/RbSP6LugZ2

According to the New York Daily News:
About 57% of registered voters said they will “definitely vote against” Trump in 2020, according to a poll from PBS NewsHour, NPR and The Marist Poll.Of national voters, 30% said they would definitely vote for Trump, while 13% were unsure.
Over half of the respondents disapprove of the job Trump is doing as a president, according to the survey.
That falls in line with a slew of other polls taken in recent weeks that prove Trump is in big trouble, which will only get worse as the shutdown continues with no end in sight.
But that’s not all. While most voters across the country don’t want to vote for Trump in 2020, the GOP is split on the question of whether or not Trump should face a primary challenge.
Additionally, 44% of Republicans and Republican leaning candidates want another Republican candidate to challenge Trump for the primary nomination for the Republican party in the 2020 primaries, while 45% do not.
It appears Trump and his refusal to end the shutdown is even causing Republicans to think twice about making him their nominee again. That’s incredibly disastrous for Trump.
Clearly, Trump made a mistake by causing a government shutdown and refusing to end it by giving up on his ludicrous demand for a wall that will not work to stop illegal immigration and drugs.
And now Trump is feeling the wrath of voters, a wrath that could easily be aimed at Republicans in Congress if they keep refusing to stand up to Trump and end this shutdown without wall funding. It’s time for this costly shutdown to come to an end, or Americans will make sure the political future of Trump and his Republican allies come to an end in 2020 and beyond.
