Despite an ongoing impeachment inquiry, a poll released on Wednesday morning has found that a majority of Americans think President Donald Trump will win in 2020.
The poll, from Morning Consult and Politico, found that 56 percent of Americans expect Trump to be reelected next year. That includes 85 percent of Republicans and 51 percent of independents. Only about 35 percent of Democrats are of the same opinion.
