President Donald Trump managed to win in 2016 due to some white voters who were willing to switch from voting for President Barack Obama to Trump. With the lack of results, many of those voters are turning to another candidate.
New York Times politics reporter Jeremy Peters, explained while talking about former Vice President Joe Biden, that Trump is likely the most afraid of that campaign in 2020.
“The numbers that the Trump campaign has are a little closer than the public polling we’ve seen which has Biden blowing Trump out,” said Peters. “I don’t think you can believe any poll that has a huge spread this far from the general election, especially when you don’t know who the nominee is. Start there. But they are nervous. And they should be.”
The largest problem for Trump, according to Peters, comes from Pennsylvania and the new numbers that shows he’s struggling to maintain his 2016 support.
“Because Trump’s support with the kind of voters that allowed him to win Pennsylvania, these so-called Obama voters who voted for Obama twice and then Trump has declined,” he continued. “It’s still strong, at about two-thirds, but it was up near 85 near 90 percent right after the election. In an election that was decided by 77,000 votes, basically a hair, he can’t afford to lose any support.”

Mike Pence should be investigated for his part in Ukraine negotiations and ‘we need some answers’: Ex-prosecutor
On MSNBC's "AM Joy" Saturday, former federal prosecutor Joyce Vance agreed with host Joy Reid that Vice President Mike Pence could be involved in the Ukraine whistleblower cover-up — and that Congress needs to act to learn the truth for the American people.
"Let me go to you on this very quickly, Joyce, because here's the question for Mike Pence," said Reid. "Mike Pence has been sort of severed from all of the other questions that are relating to potential impeachment for Donald Trump, that the House is wrestling with right now, but if Pence ... went in knowing why the aid was being held up, went in and spoke to the leader of Ukraine knowing what stick the administration had over them, and in that way was drawn in to this idea of using that stick to try to get what they wanted from Ukraine, does he then face the jeopardy of perhaps also being drawn into the questions of impeachment?"
