Recent polls indicate that if Beto O'Rourke ends up getting the Democratic nomination for the upcoming 2020 presidential elections, he has the strongest chance of beating President Donald Trump.
O'Rourke has been climbing steadily in the charts, and it looks like the politician is doing a lot right, judging by current responses in this latest CNN poll.
In general, it looks like Trump's support is waning, with many people switching over to other candidates and expressing disappointment in the current president, and distrust in his plans for the future.
Many expect things to swing in another direction, as Trump is still predicted to be the slight favorite in the upcoming election.
What has changed for this poll to be so bad for the president? According to some experts, Trump's recent attempts to garner additional support for his cause may have backfired, as many people have become disillusioned with his ideals and have started to move away from his platform.
At the same time, Trump himself has doubled down on his views and has so far refused to see other arguments when it comes to the major issues facing the country.
While some of the president's most avid supporters still have hopes that he is going to turn around and show a new face, that does not seem to be the case.
Quite on the contrary, it looks like Trump is going to rely on his same old style of running things in his attempts to gain more support for the upcoming elections.
Whether this is going to work out is doubtful at this point, with many expressing healthy skepticism so far.
Trump plans to run on a good economy against Democrats who see him as a significant threat to this democracy.
Earlier today, the president tweeted: "We can all agree that AMERICA is now #1. We are the ENVY of the WORLD — and the best is yet to come!"
Former Vice President Joe Biden, a chief rival of the president, countered with the following earlier this week: "The middle class is hurting, it's hurting now. The stock market is roaring. But you don't feel it. There was a $2 trillion tax cut last year. Did you feel it? Did you get anything from it?"
Is Trump, his own worst enemy, yes or no?
