Trump Campaign to Fire Pollsters After Poor Polling Numbers Leaked

Trump Campaign to Fire Pollsters After Poor Polling Numbers Leaked

Georgia hasn't gone to a Democrat since 1992 when Bill Clinton won the presidency.

A source close to his re-election campaign didn't elaborate on who exactly they were cutting ties with.

Trump fired the firm in charge for polling his re-election campaign after leaked polls showed the president far behind in numerous states he needs to win in 2020, according to NBC News.

NBC's report also included new details of the poll, which apparently showed Trump trailing Biden by seven points in Iowa, eight in North Carolina, 17 in Virginia, one in OH, six in Georgia, 14 in Minnesota, and 15 in Maine.

The new CBS poll, conducted May 31 to June 12, confirms a significant Biden lead in battleground states among Democratic voters, as the crowded race for that party's nomination begins to take shape. The margin of error was plus or minus 1.5 per cent. He had carried the three states during his 2016 election campaign. The state has not seen a Democratic victor since 1976 when Jimmy Carter was president. We're winning in Florida very big'.

Woodland denies history with US Open title at Pebble Beach
Brooks Koepka remains at world number one, ahead of Dustin Johnson while US Open victor Gary Woodland is up 13 places to 12th. He was aware that Tiger Woods had a 12-under 272 during his historic rout at Pebble Beach in 2000, and he topped him.

Stephanopoulos revealed Trump was speaking to his chief of staff.

And NBC quoted Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale as conferring a positive spin on the latest results, saying "the president's new polling is extraordinary and his numbers have never been better".

The president does not officially launch his re-election campaign until Tuesday, when he plans an elaborate, rally-style event in a huge arena in Orlando, Florida.

In turn, campaign officials have spent the last several days rebutting the numbers, claiming they were old or incomplete. According to the Texas Tribune, 39 percent said they would "definitely" reelect Trump, while 43 percent said they would not.

If the president doesn't like reality, he just finds a new one.
