During a segment on Fox News this Tuesday morning, anchor Bill Hemmer rattled off some recent polling showing 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden leading President Trump if the election were held today. Hemmer then turned to Fox News political editor Chris Stirewalt to get a sense of why so many polls show a “neck-in-neck” race.
According to Stirewalt, Democrats know that if Elizabeth Warren is the nominee, they’d “have huge problems” in swing states, which is an advantage for Biden.
“If the election were held tomorrow and it was Joe Biden verses Donald Trump and it was a snap election, Joe Biden would beat Donald Trump, and it wouldn’t be a very close race,” Stirewalt said. “But, what Republicans also know is they’re going to spend a billion dollars roughing up Joe Biden.”
“The lesson for Trump here is, and he’s gotta remember this … if money mattered and organization mattered that much, Jeb Bush would have won the Republican nomination in 2016 and Hillary Clinton would be the president today,” he added.
Stirewalt went on to say that Trump is the “most vulnerable incumbent president that we’ve seen.”
Closing out the segment, Hemmer pointed out that Biden was the only Democratic candidate Trump mentioned by name during his Monday rally in Lexington, Kentucky.
“He’s gotta be in Trump’s head a little bit,” Stirewalt replied.

WATCH: Trump walked out of a 1990 interview with CNN when they asked about his finances
Long before he became the president, Donald Trump was a business tycoon who had trouble holding onto his money.
As New York Times reporting on the president's personal income tax records has shown, Trump throughout his career would frequently burn through money at a stunning rate throughout the 1990s, at one point reporting adjusted gross losses of nearly $1 billion per year in 1994 and 1995.
The tax records obtained by the Times show that things really started going downhill for Trump in 1990, when he reported a gross net loss of $400 million.
GOP lawmaker in Tennessee admits to prescribing opioids to his second cousin — who was also his lover
Tennessee state Sen. Joey Hensley (R) is under investigation by a medical review board for providing opioids to family members, one of which was his second cousin -- who also happened to be his lover, the Tennessean reports.
Hensley, an anti-LGBT ideologue who wrote his state's infamous "Don't Say Gay" bill, admits that he prescribed drugs for his relatives, but says he's the only doctor in town.
“There are not many people in the county who haven’t been to see Dr. Hensley, and she was one of them,” defense attorney David Steed said, adding, “Half of the county are Hensleys. Everyone there knows everyone. There were multiple relationships and the physician-patient relationship was only one and somewhat incidental to the others.”
West Virginia voter: ‘I’ll probably vote for Donald Trump’ because ‘he keeps the people to the TV set’
A group of West Virginia voters explained their voting choices to MSNBC on Monday.
"I don't have TV, I don't have internet," one woman said. "I'm pretty far behind. And I bet you a lot of around here are because we're poor. I don't know nothing about Joe [Biden]. I ain't never heard nothing about him at all. Donald Trump, I know a little bit about him because of the past couple of years."
"I'll probably vote for Donald Trump," Jeff Kibbey told MSNBC. "He keeps the people to the TV set."
"One, Trump is good," Francis Senter insisted. "Biden -- however you pronounce his name -- is good too. But like I say, I can't judge either one of them. It's the same community it ain't never going to change because if it was going to change it wouldn't look like this right here."
