Donald Trump’s re-election campaign just got hit with awful news.
And it could put the President’s 2020 chances in jeopardy.
For the first time ever, Trump just got word that he may not win the next election after all.
President Donald Trump had every reason to believe that he would be a shoo-in for re-election in 2020.
With a growing economy and the damage of the years of mismanagement of Barack Obama well behind the country, Trump may have been expecting that he would coast to a second term in the White House.
But that seems to be anything but the case now.
And it’s all because one massive shock poll shows that the President is now in serious danger of losing many of the states that delivered him critical victories over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.
Morning Consult is now reporting that for the first time ever, Trump’s approval rating is now underwater in every swing state in America.
There are usually about 12 to 15 swing states that exist in the country at any given time.
And based on the results of the 2016 election, it can be assumed that Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, Iowa, Ohio, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Florida, Virginia, Maine, and New Hampshire are all considered swing states to varying degrees.
President Trump’s approval rating is underwater in all 15 of them.
This ranges from a -17 point net approval rating in New Hampshire, to -1 in North Carolina and Florida.
But the result is still a massive wake up call for the President’s campaign.
Trump cannot afford to enter election day being unpopular in the most critical swing states in the country.
And in the Midwest, where Trump won a shocking upset over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, the numbers are even worse than on the east coast.
The President stands at -14 in Minnesota and Wisconsin, two states his campaign intends to campaign heavily in next year.
Neighboring Michigan also looks rough for the President, at -11.
Meanwhile, Ohio, which voted for Trump in a virtual landslide over Hillary Clinton in 2016, stands at -6. Pennsylvania is a tad worse at -8.
These are all numbers the Trump team will have to improve upon if they hope to win the Midwest for the second election in a row.
And the winner of these critical swing states that once formed part of the infamous “Blue Wall” of electoral college votes for Democrats will almost certainly go on to win the entire election.
For Trump, these states present his best chance of victory in the next election, as well as his greatest vulnerability.
But elsewhere in the country there are also signs that the President’s approval is beginning to slip.
In Nebraska, the President is underwater with a -1 net approval rating, while Texas remains almost up in the air with Trump enjoying a net rating of 6-points.
Do you think Trump can improve his approval ratings before the 2020 elections?
