An ABC News-Washington Post poll found out that the thriving and robust economy has helped President Donald Trump against the 2020 Democrat presidential hopefuls.

Buried lede: The Democrats lead shrink a lot when you only count registered voters.

Once again reality escapes the Democrats and left. People vote with their wallets. They want jobs and money in their pockets. They want to be able to provide for their families. From the poll:

Economic prosperity is boosting Donald Trump’s political prospects, helping the relatively unpopular president to a competitive position against his potential Democratic opponents in the fall election, the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll finds.

Key to Trump’s opportunity is a rise in economic confidence. One year before he took office, 63 percent of Americans said they were worried about maintaining their standard of living. Today, 43 percent say so, a broad 20-point drop in personal economic uncertainty.

Trump, moreover, gets a share of credit; as reported Friday, 56 percent approve of his handling of the economy, up 10 points since early September to a career high.

The result is a tighter contest for the presidency in this poll, produced for ABC by Langer Research Associates. Among all adults, Trump trailed top Democratic candidates by doubledigits in the fall; he’s now cut those margins in half. Among registered voters, moreover, he’s now running essentially even in head-to-head matchups.

While most of the Democrats lead Trump the economy has helped cut down their lead.

Former Vice President Joe Biden leads Trump only 50% to 46%. Biden had a 17-point lead in this poll only three months ago.

The next highly favored opponent? Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg!

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) only has a two-point lead over Trump. Trump is dead even with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)! Even Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) has a lead over Trump.

But as the poll said the difference shrinks when you only count registered voters.

The poll also showed that 49% of Americans think Trump will win in November compared to 43%.

That’s probably because 94% of those who voted for him in 2016 plan on doing so in November.

But the fact remains that the majority of Americans just want jobs and money in their wallet. All this social justice crap and impeachment pales in comparison to our daily lives.
