[Politics] 51% Still Likely to Vote Against Trump In November

While the diminishing Democratic field of White House hopefuls continues to slug it out, just over half of voters still plan to vote against President Trump come November.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey shows that 44% of Likely U.S. Voters say they are more likely to vote for Trump in the 2020 presidential election. But 51% say they are more likely to vote against him. This compares to 42% and 52% respectively last September when Rasmussen Reports first asked this question. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

[Politics] Ratings Changes: Senate, House, and Governor By Kyle Kondik and J. Miles Coleman
KEY POINTS FROM THIS ARTICLE

— The Kansas Senate race is getting a lot of national buzz, but we still see the GOP as clearly favored to hold the seat.

— The chances of Republicans springing Senate upsets in New Hampshire and Virginia appear to be growing dimmer.

— Gov. Gavin Newsom’s (D-CA) decision not to hold a special election for CA-50 makes it likelier for Republicans to hold the seat.

— Vermont is a sleeper Democratic gubernatorial target.

[Politics] 'An Impeachment That Will Last Forever' Why did the Speaker of the House go before the press to declare that the charges against the president are "an impeachment that will last forever?" Mrs. Pelosi used phrase just before sending the charges over to the Senate. She was flanked by the two key managers who will prosecute the case, Congressmen Jerrold Nadler and Adam Schiff, who showed no emotion. Yet the more we rolled her phrasing over in our mind, the more it struck us as peculiar off and even an abuse. Published:1/16/2020 6:23:54 AM
