President Trump on Monday downplayed recent polling that shows him trailing a number of Democratic hopefuls in hypothetical 2020 matchups, calling the group of Democratic hopefuls a “Motley Crew” while saying it is “too early” to be focused on the race for the White House.
“Only Fake Polls show us behind the Motley Crew. We are looking really good, but it is far too early to be focussed on that,” Trump tweeted.
Trump’s latest hit at polls follows reports that his campaign fired pollsters after leaked internal polling numbers showed him trailing former Vice President Joe Biden in 11 states crucial to winning a second term.
According to NBC, the leaked internal poll also showed Trump underperforming in reliably red states.
A Fox News Poll released Sunday shows Trump trailing five Democrats in possible 2020 head-to-head matchups. Former Vice President Joe Biden has the biggest lead against Trump, 49 percent to 39 percent. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) leads the president 49 percent to 40 percent in the poll.
