2020 Election Poll

I’m conducting a poll of my own to see whether my data is consistent with national polling.  In 2016 I correctly predicted the outcomes while the national polls were off by an average of more than 5%.

Here’s What the Polling Says About Trump

My online poll, which ran for five days and received more than 1,000 entries from all 50 states, produced the following data:

  1. Among those who did not vote in 2016, 67% of them intend to vote for Trump.  Only 11% chose Biden.
  2. Among those who voted for Trump in 2016, 97% intend to vote for him in 2020.
  3. Among those who voted for Clinton in 2016, 78% intend to vote for Biden in 2020.
  4. Among those who voted third party in 2016, 49% intend to vote for Trump and 11% intend to vote for Biden.
  5. 6% of black voters who say they voted for Clinton in 2016 intend to vote for Trump in 2020
  6. 8% of Latino voters who say they voted for Clinton in 2016 intend to vote for Trump in 2020
  7. 3% of white voters who say they voted for Clinton in 2016 intend to vote for Trump in 2020.

Among Republican voters, the top three issues they identified as their priorities:

  1. Ending abortion

  1. There is no indication of a lack of support for Trump among Republicans.
  2. There is considerable evidence that Trump will do better among minorities than he did in 2016
  3. There is some evidence of a lack of enthusiasm among Democrats for Biden.

  5. Polling in 2016 almost unanimously predicted a Hillary

The Hysteria of the NeverTrumpers

The NeverTrumpers on the Left and the Right were in hysteria about the death of Soleimani and imminent WW3 and it’s all come to a big nothing.
