President Donald Trump received some bad numbers on Tuesday when a new poll showed his top potential 2020 rivals beating him handily.
And the rest of the numbers weren’t much better.
The poll said Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) had a 9-point edge (51-42) over the president while Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) maintained an 8-point lead (49-41). Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) wasn’t far behind, leading Trump by 7 (49-42). Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg each had a 5-point lead (47-42 in both cases).
Others were even blunter in their assessment, causing “Trump 41%” to trend on Twitter. Some folks even made jokes about all the things that might beat Trump in 2020:
