President Trump Unlikely To Face Significant Republican Primary Challenger In 2020

President Trump appears unlikely to face any sort of significant Republican challenger heading into the 2020 elections. That’s according to pollster Mike Greenfield, who said even in a hypothetical poll there’s no Republican names quite big enough to take on the president.
Greenfield said a South Carolina-based poll revealed any potential GOP challengers are trailing the president ahead of the primaries.
“I think it’s very unlikely that anyone is gonna challenge President Trump in a significant way…you don’t see a moderate insurgency of Republicans snatching back the White House,” he stated. “We did a poll in South Carolina and polled several different people, we didn’t poll well, but most of the candidates are well under 10% under Trump.”
The poll also appeared to show South Carolina native and former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley only clinched 21-percent of the vote among Republicans.
“Even Nikki Haley, who’s from South Carolina, really has everything going for her, polls in the low 20s against Trump,” explained Greenfield.
This comes as former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld announced his White House bid Monday, becoming the first major Republican to challenge President Trump as he vies for reelection. However, even in the hypothetical survey, Held only managed to secure three-percent of the total vote against the president.

According to Gallup, close to 90-percent of Republican voters approve of President Trump’s job performance, showing just how popular he is with his base.
While the list of Democrat White House hopefuls continues to grow, there just doesn’t appear to be any Republicans capable of taking on the president.
