Teflon Donald Trump’s poll numbers rise despite looming impeachment

Empower Wisconsin | Dec. 18, 2019

U.S. Rep. Pat Schroeder (D-CO) in 1983 coined the term the Teflon-coated presidency in summing up President Ronald Reagan’s political resiliency.

Nearly 40 years later, enter Teflon Don.

As House Democrats quicken their impeachment dance, President Donald Trump is leading his potential presidential campaign rivals, according to a new USA Today/Suffolk University poll.

Trump leads former Vice President Joe Biden by 3 percentage points in a head-to-head matchup, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders by 5 points, and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren by 8, the poll of registered voters finds.

The president outpaces South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg by 10 percentage points and former New York Mayor and liberal sugar daddy Michael Bloomberg by 9.

Of course, there’s a long way to go before the November 2020 election, but it seems the more liberals push impeachment, the better the polling numbers are for Trump.

A recent Firehouse/Optimus poll found Trump leading Biden, Warren, Sanders, Buttigieg and Bloomberg in key battleground states of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.

An Investor’s Business Daily poll shows Trump with small leads over all Dem presidential hopefuls except Biden.

Last week’s Marquette University Law School Poll of Wisconsin voters found Trump with small leads over Sanders, Warren, and Buttigieg, and trailing Biden within the margin of error.

As National Review’s Jim Geraghty points out, the USA Today poll might be an outlier, or “maybe a combination of impeachment, the far-from-centrist tone of most Democratic candidates, and recent good economic news have turned President Trump into a much tougher opponent to beat in 2020.”
