Join us and make your voice heard!
Good afternoon. Here are the latest news and updates that our team at Future Majority is tracking.
After a raucous Democratic Primary debate, we have some new primary poll numbers to report on:
A UMass Lowell poll from Wednesday shows former Vice President Joe Biden out in front in the South Carolina Primary at 23%. He’s followed by Senator Bernie Sanders (21%), Tom Steyer (13%), Senator Elizabeth Warren (11%), Former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg (11%), Senator Amy Klobuchar (9%), and Representative Tulsi Gabbard (4%).
A Hill/HarrisX poll shows from Wednesday has Sanders (22%) in the lead among registered Democratic and Democratic-leaning Independent voters in the national Democratic primary. He’s followed by Biden (19%), Bloomberg (18%), Warren (12%), Buttigieg (10%), Klobuchar (5%), and Steyer (3%).
We’ll continue to monitor new polls on the primary nationally and in Nevada throughout the day and will bring those to you.
What’s the story on Trump’s approval rating? It depends on the poll you’re looking at:
A new weekly Gallup poll out today shows Trump in a strong position and holding steady from Gallup’s last poll:
- Approve: 49%
- Disapprove: 48%
43% of Independents give Trump’s job performance a thumbs up, his highest rating among this group since he took office.
Trump’s approval rating, however, is 12 points under water in two other new polls out today:
- Approve: 43%
- Disapprove: 55%
- Approve: 42%
- Disapprove: 54%
Moreover, both of these polls show voters believe the country is moving in the wrong direction by a 20-point margin -- a troubling sign for Trump.
Looking ahead at the 2020 Election, here are some key dates for you to add to your calendar.
