Washington DC 2019 – Tensions run high amongst the candidates for the 2020 presidential election as the democrats work against President Donald Trump’s reelection efforts. On September 13th these tensions were tested by a poll conducted through WSJ and clearly illustrating the public opinion by the 16th just three days later. 

The Democrats may not have to worry so much after all with these stark results. 

This poll demonstrated the public opinion of candidates both as people, and as leaders in regards to their plans for our country. The results that followed for Trump were grim as only 19% of people liked him as a person and 49% for his government plans and decisions. These unpromising numbers are very telling, as these are lower poll results for this time than the last five presidents. 

When a couple of fellow Americans were asked their opinion on the matter the results varied. 

“Well, as a person I’m not too fond of him. I think that there’s more that I dislike about him than like about him. I believe he does love our country and has its best interests at heart,” said Mrs. Hernandez, an NHS teacher. 

“I believe that Donald Trump is very trustworthy. When he is doing his job, he does it very well,” said Mrs. Gravel, another NHS teacher.

It seems like Trump may have some public approval after all, as some supporters stay strong.

According to the poll Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden take the lead. 

America will have to see where the 2020 election goes as voting looms closer and after the selection of the Democratic party candidate. 

Donald Trump’s possible impeachment may also affect these results, but the public seems to be in agreement he may be tough to beat. Mrs. Hernandez said, “I believe if Trump doesn’t get impeached he’s going to be tough to beat.” 

“It’ll be a very tough race,” echoed Mrs. Gravel. America will surely be on the edge of their seats for 2020. The fate of America’s leadership awaits.
