Trump Camp To Fire Pollsters Following Embarrassing Data Leaks

Trump Camp To Fire Pollsters Following Embarrassing Data Leaks

The NBC/WSJ poll of 1,000 adults was conducted June 8-11 and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.

President Donald Trump's reelection campaign plans to fire several of its pollsters following the leak of the campaign's internal polling figures that showed 2020 Democratic candidate Joe Biden beating Trump in crucial swing states.

This is an increase from last year's polling, which showed support at 39% for and 51% against impeaching the president.

Trump had insisted "they were fake polls", but Tapper again emphasized, "That is not true".

Biden comes in at 23 percent, while O'Rourke is right behind him at 22 percent and Sanders is at 17 percent.

Holding edges of 1 or 2 points over Trump - albeit within the poll's three-point margin of error - were senators Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris, as well as Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana. Polls in SC are no exception.

Trump told ABC News he is being asked for statements "they've never asked another President for". Baselice, who is based in Austin, Texas, joined the Trump campaign near the end of the 2016 election cycle and had been close to Trump's 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale, the person said.

CNN and other outlets first reported the numbers - which showed Trump trailing Joe Biden in states like MI and Wisconsin - weeks ago, but a purge of the polling team was proposed after Trump grew angry about coverage of the numbers in recent days. But, he added, the number is not necessarily "a useful prediction for an election that's 16 months away". One widely viewed tweet this week shows five presidential candidates in recent decades who trailed at this point in their campaigns - including Trump - but who went on to win.
