President Donald Trump thinks only three Democratic presidential candidates actually have a shot of securing the party nomination — and he’s not worried about any of them.
While speaking to reporters on Thursday afternoon, Trump predicted either former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, or Sen. Bernie Sanders will win the Democratic Party nomination.
But Trump said he really wants “Sleepy Joe.”
“Look, they all have their weaknesses and their strengths. I think that they’re very different – you certainly have a lot of different voices up there,” Trump said.
“But it would look to me like it would be Elizabeth Warren and it looks like Joe maybe will be able to get there, maybe not, I don’t know,” the president added. “And certainly Bernie is there, he’s number three. But I think that’s because they’re so far in the lead, the three of them.”
“And if you remember — I’m sure you forget my Republican primaries, but I went to the lead at the very beginning and stayed there,” Trump continued to reporters.
He added: “You know, if you don’t make a really major mistake, he should be able to make it, I would imagine Biden would be able to make it if he doesn’t make any major mistakes. We’ll see what happens.”
The liberal mainstream media is already ramping up its efforts to help Democrats and hurt Trump in the 2020 election.
But a new poll reveals who voters think will win the 2020 presidential election.
According to presidential survey from ScottRasmussen.com, a majority of voters think Trump will win a second term in office.
The latest survey found that 63 percent of voters nationwide believe it is at least “somewhat likely” that Trump will win re-election in 2020.
The number of voters who think Trump will win the upcoming election has continued to rise in the survey all year.
Only 29 percent of respondents said Trump is “very unlikely” to win re-election.
Just 15 percent said it’s “not likely at all” that the president will win the election in 2020.
A whopping 88 percent of Republicans believe the president is likely to secure a second term in office.
In fact, a majority (56 percent) of Republican voters believe POTUS is “very likely” to be re-elected.
While the election is still around 16 months away, Trump has secured a huge advantage that could sway the outcome in his favor.
Trump’s campaign and the the Republican National Committee raised a combined $108 million in the second quarter of this year.
The Trump campaign and the RNC have a combined $123.7 million in cash reserves.
For context, those numbers are much higher than the fundraising totals former President Barack Obama and the Democratic National Committee posted in the same quarter in 2011.
In 2011, Obama’s reelection campaign reported $47 million in donations, with the DNC reporting it took in $38 million.
Trump and the RNC have brought in a combined $108 million compared to Obama and the DNC having just $85 million in total at the same time in their respective presidencies.
That’s a big difference.
The 2020 election may be a year and a half away, but it’s clear Trump has a massive fundraising advantage — which will be key to him securing a second term in office.
