55% flatly rule out voting for Trump, health care is top issue

The key issue of the 2018 midterms may stick around to trouble President Donald Trump in 2020: Americans, by a 17-point margin, say his handling of health care makes them more likely to oppose than support him for a second term.

That result, from the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll, marks one of many challenges Trump is expected to face as he seeks re-election.

The Mueller report and his immigration policies are substantial negatives as well. As reported Friday, Trump’s overall popularity is low: just 39 % of people approve of his work in office, and 55% flatly rule out voting for him next year.

Beyond that, a remarkable 75% of Americans, and 85% of registered voters, say they’re certain to vote in the 2020 election -- intended turnout levels typically only seen in the closing days of a presidential contest. If that intensity is maintained, it may boost Democratic candidates, many of whose core support groups are less reliable voters.

whether they are positive or negative, Polls are used to spread propaganda. If the DNC pushes our agenda to the right the millennials and younger voters will not turn out. I've said enough.

There is very little trust in the status quo. Democrats would do quite well to acknowledge that.

Women of color.

The nominee will be the one who respects them and will listen to them.

The She the People candidates' forum shed a spotlight on who does and who doesn't.

Almost everyone I know won't vote for him again. Especially after he raised taxes on the working guy, to give a tax cut to billionaires. How arrogant do you have to be to try and get away with something like that, and then lie about it?

Still think we should impeach him, I for one don't want to wait till 2020.

11. Health care, so far, is not a top item on their issues for the election.

For obvious reasons.

Their issues, so far:
Abortion
Immigration
Economy
