‘Morning Joe’ on New Poll Numbers: Just About Everybody Running Could Beat Donald Trump

‘Donald Trump is going to get trounced’


GEIST: “Yeah. That’s even worse — if that held up, Joe — that’s even worse than the gap he had with Hillary Clinton among women. Think about that for just a moment. The woman who could have been the first female president of the United States. That’s a terrible number. If you go back to that head-to-head poll, what’s fascinating is yes, Beto is beating the president by ten points, which is pretty astonishing, but Beto will have to get to that race. He’s polling at 4, 5, 6 percent in his own primary. Joe Biden’s whole argument so far has been to go directly to the President and say, 'I’m the one who can beat him.' Well, that may be true, but it turns out there are about seven other people who could make that case as well at this point in the race anyway. So I think Joe Biden is going to have to go on something more than just electability, although a lot of people do think he can beat him. Because it turns out at this moment in time — and yes, we're a long way out — just about everybody running against Donald Trump could beat him on the Democratic side.”
