26% Say Trump Unlikely to Be President At End of 2019

Twenty-six percent (26%) of voters say it is at least somewhat unlikely that Donald Trump will still be President of the United States at the end of 2019. A ScottRasmussen.com survey found that 62% believe he is likely to still be president while 12% are not sure.

Those figures include 40% who say President Trump is Very Likely to be in office a year from now and 12% who think it is Very Unlikely.

A majority of African-American voters (55%) think it is unlikely President Trump will be in office when 2019 comes to a close. That view is shared by 44% of all Democrats, but only 5% of Republicans (see crosstab results).

If the president remains in office and seeks re-election, voters are evenly divided on his prospects. Forty-three percent (43%) say he is at least somewhat likely to win in 2020 while 44% take the opposite view and 13% are not sure.

Seventy percent (70%) of black voters believe President Trump is unlikely to be re-elected. White voters, by a 48% to 40% margin, think he is likely to keep his job. Hispanic voters, by a 49% to 35% margin, say he is unlikely to prevail a year from November.

That racial divide is fueled partially by the fact that 57% of voters believe President Trump wants a nation based upon white supremacy.
