Serious Republican Primary of Trump Seems Increasingly Unlikely


According to a new poll, Republican voters don’t seem to have any serious interest in any of the possible challengers President Donald Trump may face in a 2020 primary.

The new Zobgy poll finds Republican support for Trump stands at 64 percent, but that no challenger has any serious following.

The next closest challenger is Utah Senator Mitt Romney at a tiny nine percent followed by former Ohio Governor John Kasich at eight percent. Both Sen. Romney and Kasich have been massive losers every time they have run for president.

  • Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley 6 percent.
  • Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush 2 percent.
  • Former Sen. Jeff Flake 1 percent

Kasich and Flake have both said they are considering a run in 2020 and the rumor mill has run over time that Romney may also be testing the waters in light of his constant badmouthing of the president.

Still, these numbers seem to show that none of these challengers have anywhere near a serious challenge mounting against Trump.

“Even in a crowded field with established candidates and a former presidential nominee, President Trump receives two-thirds support from Republicans,” Zogby’s analysis said.

“With an 81 percent job approval rating from Republicans and conservatives,” Zogby added, “it’s reasonable to assume Trump will not be primaried and has the support of the GOP for his 2020 re-election bid.”

One dark spot for the president was his lagging approval rating.

“The president’s approval rating has decreased to its lowest point in a year! As it stands now, Trump’s job approval rating is 41 percent approve/56 percent disapprove, while 3 percent of voters are not sure,” the analysis concluded.
