A year after his historic election rocked Democrats, President Trump has hit an all-time low in polls and would face defeat if the election were held today.
Two new Zogby Analytics polls show Trump down to just 37 percent approval and losing to former Vice President Joe Biden, Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren and also to Michelle Obama, the pick of many for the 2020 Democratic nominee.
Trump has never been above water in his approval polls, but this is as far down as he has been in the Zogby testing. Some 60 percent disapprove.
The poll analysis warned that Trump is losing his base. “The biggest problem for the president is that his base is disappearing: 39 percent of males approve/56 percent disapprove; 28 percent of independents approve/64 percent disapprove; 39 percent of voters without a college degree approve/57 percent disapprove, and only 28 percent of union voters approve/69 percent disapprove,” said Zogby.
Among Republicans, he is law too, at just 74 percent approve, and it is down from the mid-80s of a few months ago.
Those low approvals played a role in this week’s elections, especially in Virginia where there was an anti-Trump wave.
And it is impacting the still far off 2020 presidential race. All four Democrats polled by Zogby would beat the president.
Sanders has the biggest lead at 51 percent to 40 percent. Next are Biden, 50-41, Obama, 47-44, and Warren, 45-43.
