A new poll from the Associated Press is shedding more light on the current state of the 2020 race for the White House; with numbers revealing Republicans are “fired-up” while Democrats are increasingly “nervous.”
“When it comes to the 2020 presidential election, Democrats are nervous wrecks and Republican excitement has grown,” reports the Associated Press. “That’s according to a new poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research as Americans look ahead to a high-stakes election that is 10 months away but still very much top of mind. While emotions could change in the coming months, the findings give Democrats one more worry to add to the list: Will anxiety or enthusiasm be a bigger motivator come November?”
“On the verge of the first votes being cast in a primary contest with no clear leader, 66% of Democrats report anxiety about the election, compared with 46% of Republicans. Democrats are also more likely to feel frustration. Republicans, meanwhile, are more likely than Democrats to declare excitement about the race, and the share of enthusiastic Republicans appears to be rising,” adds the AP.

President Trump promising to discuss “people who love, and hate, our country.”
“Big Rally tonight in Greenville, North Carolina. Lots of great things to tell you about, including the fact that our Economy is the best it has ever been.

Trump is likely referring to the four Democratic Congresswomen he’s mentioned in recent days.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy defended President Trump from ‘Radical Democrat’ lawmakers Tuesday; saying their phony outrage regarding his tweets is “all about politics.”
“House Republican leaders stood by President Trump on Tuesday in response to a Democratic resolution condemning his controversial tweets about four freshman lawmakers, alleging their outrage is ‘all about politics’ and suggesting it’s being used to revive an impeachment push,” reports Fox News.
“They talked more about impeachment than anything else,” said McCarthy; referencing Monday’s press conference from the ‘Squad’ -consisting of Representatives Omar, Pressley, Tlaib, and Ocasio-Cortez.
Trump continued his all-out war with “Radical Democrats” Tuesday morning; saying there’s “not a racist bone” in his body and that progressive lawmakers “hate our country.”
“Our Country is Free, Beautiful and Very Successful. If you hate our Country, or if you are not happy here, you can leave!” tweeted the Commander-in-Chief.

“He kept his promises, he is passionate about America. He wants to keep us safe, I am tired of people hating on him. He is doing his best to defend us,” Alan Machapento, a New Jersey native, told Fox News. “I am watching the Dow, we have the lowest unemployment ever.”
“From the moment he said he was running, I was a Trump fan,” said another supporter. “He is not a politician, and I am so glad my grandson is going to grow up in an America that is great.”
