Low Rated Don: Trump’s Support Collapses As 53% Of Seniors Definitely Won’t Vote For Him

Mod: Low Rated Don stepped on the third rail of American politics and seniors now want to dump Trump. Didn't anyone tell the orange fool you just don't mess with Social Security and Medicare?

Trump’s Support Collapses As 53% Of Seniors Definitely Won’t Vote For Him (PoliticsUSA.com link): A new poll reveals that more than half of all senior voters say that they definitely will not vote for Trump in 2020, and seniors have turned against Trump.

Trump beat Hillary Clinton by eight points with seniors (53%-45%) in 2016, which was lower than seniors support of Romney over Obama in 2012 (56%-44%). Trump’s support with seniors has totally flipped. It has gone from 52% support to 53% definitely not voting for him in 2020.

Republicans have banked on seniors being more conservative and outperforming their nominee’s approval rating. Trump is doing worse with seniors than his overall approval rating. The thirty-four percent who say that they will definitely vote for him is less than the 37%-40% range that Trump approval has settled into.

If Trump Loses Seniors, He Loses The White House

Republicans have intentionally focused their voter suppression efforts on younger people and minorities because those are the two growing groups of voters who tend to vote Democratic. The Republican Party has gone older, whiter, and more rural under Trump. Republicans need seniors to win. If voters over age 65 support Trump in smaller numbers, Republicans will lose the White House, the Senate, and Democrats will keep the House.

Horrible News For Trump As  Just 12% Say They Have Greatly Benefited From His Economy (PoliticsUSA.com link): The Monmouth University Poll found: 12% of Americans say that their family has benefited a great deal from recent growth in the U.S. economy and another 31% say they have received some benefit from the economic upturn. A majority, though, say they have been helped either not much (27%) or not at all (27%) from the nation's macroeconomic growth.

These results are nearly identical to Monmouth Polls taken in 2018 as well as just before Trump took office in January 2017. Only 34% of those earning less than $50,000 a year and 42% of those earning between $50,000 and $100,000 say they have benefited at least somewhat from the growing economy. This contrasts with those earning more the $100,000, where a majority (58%) say they have benefited.

Wiggle, America.
Trump and the Republicans think that they can run on the economy in 2020, but the problem is that the majority of Americans don’t feel like their own pocketbooks have prospered under Trump. When Trump talks about the economy, he always talks about the stock market and the unemployment rate. Most Americans don’t own stocks, but they are worried about healthcare and being able to afford to pay their bills.

The economy didn’t work as a strategy for Congressional Republicans in 2018, because people don’t feel like they are doing better under Trump. Unless you are rich, Trump’s economy really isn’t that good. The one thing that Republicans thought could save them may not matter at all to voters in 2020.

  1. 55% flatly rule out voting for Trump, health care is top issue

    The key issue of the 2018 midterms may stick around to trouble President Donald Trump in 2020: Americans, by a 17-point margin, say his handling of health care makes them more likely to oppose than support him for a second term.

    That result, from the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll, marks one of many challenges Trump is expected to face as he seeks re-election.

    The Mueller report and his immigration policies are substantial negatives as well. As reported Friday, Trump’s overall popularity is low: just 39 % of people approve of his work in office, and 55% flatly rule out voting for him next year.

    Beyond that, a remarkable 75% of Americans, and 85% of registered voters, say they’re certain to vote in the 2020 election -- intended turnout levels typically only seen in the closing days of a presidential contest. If that intensity is maintained, it may boost Democratic candidates, many of whose core support groups are less reliable voters.

  2. I guess Trump's attempts to smear Biden didn't work.

    CNN poll shows Biden in commanding lead among Democrats - Biden 39% , Sanders 15%



    Former Vice President Joe Biden's announcement of a bid for the Democratic presidential nomination earned him an 11-point polling bounce, leaving him head and shoulders above the rest of the Democratic candidates.

    39% Biden, 15% Bernie

    "Bigger bounce than expected"

  3. Once again it will all come down to who will actually vote in the 2020 election, not the polls before the election...keep up the good work but remember it is the electoral college that really elects the president.

  7. I think the Orange big mouth has more votes than the deniers and no Trumpers realize.
    You may not own stock; which are skyrocketing by the way, or you may pay for your own healthcare out of pocket; which you should and by the way, the mandate of Obamas disaster is no more next year.
    You may not read mandates from Congresd and Senate and understand that Medicare and Social Security were scheduled to run out soon due to the overspending of Democrats and all of their new programs that do nothing but spend cash.
    But seniors and youth can see the employment for this country has never been better than today; so Mr. President, see you for four more years.

  8. Those bilge pumps are working over time these days in the White House in Washington D.C. April 2019. Those happy days of (djt) are all done an over with or Kaput in his native White Nationalist/NAZI language. Just like the Nuremberg trials, they will go on for years after he is kicked or voted out of office. Hanging would be to good/quick for them all, lengthy prison terms of min 10 years each would be a good start for each indictment.

  9. OMG the two talking heads of the Democratic Party are giving praise to President Trump; could it be that the children are finally respecting their parent?
    White House meeting on how to pay for infrastructure and the Presidents idea; broadband.
    A very constructive meeting, 2 trillion dollars, both parties agreed they like to spend money.
    Now we will see how the Dems adjust to less regulations inorder to get jobs done when the details of creating more work begin to emerge.

  10. Caracas Venzuela; rioting in the streets, the citizens are fighting to take back their country from Socialism and are fighting for Democracy.
    Uprising against Maduro Regime; so Americans realize how fortunate you are when you speak of dictatorship.
    People are dying in the streets,you see what real Dictatorship is; not from your "sic" keyboard posting about your elected President Trump as "you" view him.

    8. RWNJs couldn’t control their hysteria when Venezuela was providing free home heating oil to poor Americans a couple of years ago. So of course they had to destroy Venezuela to show how bad socialism is.

      If Canada, Norway, and Sweden gave free healthcare to poor Americans, they’d probably be destroyed, too, to show how evil socialism is (except, of course, the socialization of business costs through pollution, workers’ self paid education, taxpayer purchased infrastructure, etc.)

  11. As for the meeting that took lace at the White House on April 30, 2019 - I would not rust anything that jerk (djt) said or promised even if it was written and sign with the last drop of his filthy blood. Fat mouth (djt) got used by the N.P. and C.S. since (djt) is a stupid jerk when it comes to negotiations of any sort.

    ReplyDelete
  12. In part the reason why Venezuelans have taken to the street are because (djt) wrote them off long ago with the help from his Communist masters Communist China and Communist Russia. So poster 9:32 am. I would trust (djt) to b able to help anyone other than he can wipe his on backside, but then again that might have failed since he is so fat and stupid and stinks so badly. Down with the socialist dictatorship in Venezuela in April 2019. Down with (djt) also.

  13. To best exemplifies the criminal organization if (djt) is to pair it with Boeing's 737 MAX 8 & 9 they go up and then they go down and crash with expected results. (djt) is a out of control 737 MAX on a collision course - AGAIN - 24/7 ground those planes and ground (djt).

  19. Republican women voters (not the Stepford Wives) left in October after Trump mocked Doctor Ford. Bad timing on Trump's part as Netflix had released "The Keepers" - Emmy-nominated, a 7-part documentary about sex trafficking in the 70s. So just as men AND women victims were emerging with childhood memories, Trump mocks Ford in public. He sent victims, their friends and families to vote BLUE. When I left the GOP in October, there were only two "Republicans against Trump" social media groups from which to choose. Today, there are 100s. He has insulted: African Americans, American Indians (various Pocahantas tweets), Disabled Americans (mocked reporter), Hispanic Americans, Immigrants, Irish Americans (GOP tweet on St. Patrick's Day), Jewish Americans (promoted phony pro-Trump social media group started by his ex-staffer), Veterans (skipping ceremony at largest burial ground in Europe of U.S. fallen heroes, skipping Veterans Day ceremony in D.C.), and women. Seventy-one % of women are against Trump. Who is left to vote for him besides his uneducated base?
