CNN political director David Chalian said that of all the numbers in a new CNN poll that one should send a “chill” down the spine of the re-election campaign for President Donal Trump.
According to the new poll published Tuesday, 60 percent of American polled said that the president did not deserve re-election, while only 36 percent said that the president did deserve re-election.
“Jake, this number I think may send a chill down the spine of the folks in Trump’s re-election headquarters,” said Chalian to Tapper.
Chalian also pointed out that in their new polling that the president’s favorability rating had fallen to 39 percent, which was the lowest since January.
He noted that the only demographic that the president had a positive net approval rating was white men, who approved at the rate of 54 percent. Only 42 percent of white women approved of Trump.
The approval rating for the president in relation to the economy also dipped down below half to 48 percent, while his approval for other policies sank below the 40s.
Chalian admitted that the president has two advantages over Democrats who are embroiled in a tough race to win their party’s nomination.
“He does have time and money, two precious resources on his hands. It is more than a year away until the election,” Chalian said.
“While all the Democrats are fighting among themselves, he is raising tons and tons of money, and has the time to make his case to the American people,” he concluded.
