Texas Poll: Trump Losing Among Independents in Texas

Texas Poll: Trump Losing Among Independents in Texas

When Trump was asked about Biden - the most promising Democrat campaigning for president - during his ABC News interview, he claimed they were "fake polls".

When Trump's 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale was confronted with the actual numbers by ABC News, he said, "These leaked numbers are ancient, in campaign terms, from months-old polling that began in March before two major events had occurred: the release of the summary of the Mueller report exonerating the President, and the beginning of the Democrat candidates defining themselves with their far-left policy message".

To make things worse, the leaks revealed that Trump was losing to Biden in 11 states-and by double-digits in states like Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.

"Trump is also behind the former vice president in Iowa by 7 points, in North Carolina by 8 points, in Virginia by 17 points, in OH by 1 point, in Georgia by 6 points, in Minnesota by 14 points, and in ME by 15 points", said NBC News.

And, now, the campaign has, according to the New York Times, fired three of its five pollsters to minimize the chance of damaging leaks in the future.

As President Donald Trump wages his rejection of "fake polling", results from a media poll in Texas have the president's re-election as a 50-50 proposition, including 60% of independents saying they would vote for someone else in the latest University of Texas/Texas Tribune Poll.

Early polling has proved it does not accurately predict the outcome of election, as played out during the 2016 presidential election. Adam Geller, who was also a pollster for the Trump campaign in 2016, was another who was let go, according to another Republican familiar with the situation.

In the GTE Am class, Keating Motorsport would claim victory in the Wynn-livery Ford GT, beating out two Porsche challengers. In the LMP2 class, Sky F1's Paul Di Resta was fourth and ninth overall as part of the lead United Autosports entry.


Sources in the Trump campaign cited by media said the firings were more about cooling down an enraged Trump and less about the polling numbers, whose accuracy remains unquestioned. They included Polling Company, the former firm of close Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway.

Fox's poll was taken June 9-12 of 1,001 registered voters, and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

Mr. Biden received 32% support from those polled, more than double what Sen.

Trump has complained to staffers about the polling data disclosure for several days, White House and campaign advisers said.

Trump will launch his re-election bid in Orlando on Tuesday night and is expected to boast of his great polling numbers that show him easily winning re-election in November 2020.

National polls also show Trump trailing leading Democratic contenders.

In Michigan, where the Trump "base" is 39% and he Democratic base rests at 32%, Trump and Biden were tied in March; Biden now holds a slim three-point lead, leaving them in a statistical dead heat.
