First Read says President Trump has a 50% problem:
- 50% of all registered voters in our poll “strongly” disapprove of the president.
- 50% say there is no chance at all they will vote for him.
- 50% say they’re “very uncomfortable” about his candidacy.
- 51% are backing Joe Biden in the horserace, versus 40% for Trump.
“One of the old maxims of American politics used to be that an incumbent (for any office) needs to be at 50% to be safe for re-election — otherwise there’s a majority of voters who exist that don’t support him or her. But Trump has a different problem at hand: He’s got 50% (or more) of the national electorate saying they strongly oppose him.”Save to Favorites
