57% of Voters Will Not Support Trump in 2020 Election, New Poll Shows: 'The President Has His Base and Not Much Else'

The 2020 presidential election race is already underway, with several high-profile Democratic candidates already announcing plans to officially enter the contest to unseat President Donald Trump.

And it looks like they may stand a fighting chance, with 57 percent of registered voters saying they will "definitely" vote against Trump in 2020, according to a new poll from the PBS NewsHour, NPR and Marist.

Speaking to PBS, Marist Institute for Public Opinion Director Lee Miringoff said that while the election is still nearly two years away, the opposition to Trump's candidacy suggests that the U.S. leader faces a "steep, steep incline" on the road to re-election.

"The president has had his base and not much else," Miringoff said.

While 57 percent of voters said they would not vote for Trump, 30 percent said that they would, while another 13 percent said they had not decided yet on whether they would vote for or against Trump.

Among Republicans, 10 percent said they would vote against the U.S. leader, while 69 percent said they planned to vote for Trump and 21 percent stating they were "unsure."

Unsurprisingly, nearly all Democrats said they planned to vote against Trump at 91 percent, while 5 percent said they did plan to vote for the Republican president and another 5 percent said they did not know what they would do.

Independents largely suggested that they plan to vote against Trump at 62 percent, while 25 percent said they would vote for the president's re-election. Thirteen percent said they were unsure.

Asked who they would want to see run against Trump, the poll, which was conducted between January 10 and 13 and included 1,023 participants, found that 29 percent of Republicans and conservative-leaning Independents favored Republican Senator Mitt Romney of Utah, who ran for president in 2012, while another 24 percent suggested they would cast their ballot for former Ohio Republican Governor John Kasich. However, another 48 percent of registered Republican voters said they were unsure of how they felt about or did not even know who Kasich was.

Polled on their feelings on 10 potential Democratic presidential hopefuls, 76 percent of Democrats and Democratic-leaning Independents said they felt positively about former Vice President Joe Biden, while 57 percent said they favored Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and 53 percent said they felt positive about Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren.

Following Warren was Corey Booker with 40 percent favorable towards him, Beto O'Rourke with 39 percent, Kamala Harris with 36 percent, Michael Bloomberg with 27 percent, Kirsten Gillibrand with 22 percent, Amy Klobuchar with 21 percent and Julián Castro with 20 percent.

Of those potential presidential candidates, only Warren, Gillibrand and Castro have formally announced plans to run in the 2020 presidential race.
