Poll Shows Elizabeth Warren Losing To Donald Trump In 2020 Matchup

WASHINGTON (CBS) – A new poll looking ahead to the 2020 election finds President Donald Trump trailing a generic Democratic candidate, but not Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

The Politico/Morning Consult survey shows Trump beating Warren 42 percent to 36 percent, with 22 percent undecided. Trump loses to “Democratic candidate” 43 percent to 35 percent.

The poll was conducted after Warren made headlines by receiving a rare rebuke from the Senate for quoting a letter from Coretta Scott King during debate over Sen. Jeff Sessions’ nomination for attorney general.

Warren and Trump were frequent sparring partners during the campaign. He has referred to the senator as “Pochahontas,” referencing her claims of Native American heritage, while she has called him a “thin-skinned racist bully.”

The Massachusetts Democrat has her own re-election bid to worry about in the meantime. A WBZ-UMass poll last fall showed warning signs for Warren, leading possible challengers by just a few points.

The Politico/Morning Consult shows Warren with a 37 percent favorability rating, with 30 percent viewing her unfavorably.

  1. Warren is a politician’s politician. A narcissistic, self-important blow-hard who will say anything, do anything to get ahead. Why the fools in MA elected her is a mystery to the rest of the country, but it’s also amusing since MA claims to be the most educated state, yet they put this angry moron in the Senate, where she has done… nothing. Good work, idiots.

      Von Clownstick is an idiot. A narcissistic, self-important blow-hard who will say anything, do anything to get ahead. Why the fools in the US elected him is a mystery to the country (actually they didn’t elect him, but some relic system from the 18th century did), yet they put this angry moron in the Presidency where he has done… nothing. Good work, idiots.

      1. Your girl Hillary LOST to the absolute worst candidate the country has ever seen. What does that say about the Democrat party? ​It might not be a bad idea to try some introspection and reaching out to the other side instead of condescending dismissal.

        Like it or not, Trump is the President and even with all the Trump hate, Warren takes a back seat to him in the polls. And if you don’t like the electoral college system, then you need to get off the couch and elect people who will change the system. But if you keep electing people like Warren, that won’t happen. Besides, if you were a bit older, you’d know that the electoral college has put Democrats in the oval office too, when the popular vote went the other way.

        It’s our system. Don’t like it? You have your congressional representatives who can vote to change it. It’s how our country works, moron.

  2. Mericans are freaking stupid…..

  3. Mad dogs and happy crackers, Fakeahontis needs to go ….
