Washingtonians unhappy with Donald Trump, want to replace him with a Democrat in 2020

REDMOND, Wash. (May 28, 2019) - Voters in Washington State overwhelmingly disapprove of Donald Trump and would support a Democratic challenger if the 2020 presidential election were being held now, according to a new statewide survey commissioned by the Northwest Progressive Institute (NPI).

Sixty-one percent of respondents said they disapproved of Trump, while only 35% approved. Four percent were not sure. Fifty-nine percent of respondents said they would support Trump's Democratic opponent if the election were being held now, while 34% said they would vote for Trump. Seven percent were not sure.

Conducted by Public Policy Polling (PPP), the survey of 886 likely 2019 Washington state voters was in the field May 21-22, 2019. The poll has a margin of error of +/- 3.3% at the 95% confidence level and utilizes a blended methodology, with automated phone calls to landlines and online interviews of cellphone-only respondents.

One year ago, [the Northwest Progressive Institute (NPI)] and PPP found that 59% of Washington voters disapproved of Trump, while 35% approved and 6% were not sure.

Within just Eastern Washington, Trump has gone from plurality disapproval (48%) in 2018 to majority disapproval (51%) in 2019, suggesting that his catastrophic policies are taking a toll on his support even in areas he carried in 2016.

'Donald Trump's unpopularity could be a big problem for the Washington State Republican Party in 2020,' said Northwest Progressive Institute founder and executive director Andrew Villeneuve. 'Trump's presence on the ballot next year could be like an anvil that drags the entire ticket, hurting the reelection prospects of Republican incumbents like State Treasurer Duane Davidson, or Republican legislators representing districts like the 6th or the 10th.'

'While Trump didn't carry Washington in 2016, he did do well in rural areas of the state, capturing even some counties that have been voting Democratic in presidential contests for decades,' Villeneuve noted. 'Our data suggests that 2020 could be a different story. It's particularly significant that most voters we surveyed east of the Cascades do not approve of Trump and would vote for his Democratic opponent if the election were being held today.'

These findings are also available in a post on NPI's Cascadia Advocate at https://bit.ly/2EGBsHI.
