Poll shows Texas Democrats very optimistic about defeating Trump in 2020


AUSTIN, Texas (NEXSTAR) – A new poll released Monday morning shows 66.2 percent of Democrats in Texas think President Donald Trump will not be re-elected in November.

According to the poll from Nexstar Media Group and Emerson College, 30.3 percent think Trump will be re-elected. Three-point-six percent left the question unanswered.
