Donald Trump Has Polling Issues: While I can honestly say, I would have a hard time voting for Joe Biden, the majority of the American people disagree.

GOP Insiders Won’t Say Donald Trump Is Dead Meat Just Yet
I had a chance to ask a Senior GOP pollster to look over the recent numbers and get their sense of what is what.
They explained that Trump has a lot to worry about, but the former president does have a lot going for him:
“The challenge I see for Biden or those in the GOP who would try and challenge Trump is that Trump has that enthusiasm in the GOP that many just can’t match.
Trump is controversial, but no one drives clicks or TV ratings like Trump.
If I had to make a wager right now of where we are headed for the next few months and year, I say Trump wins the GOP primary against Ron DeSantis, and it’s a total brawl versus Joe Biden.
In the end, if the economy holds, I do think Biden wins. But Trump does have a good shot – no doubt.”
To be frank, I have really mixed feelings about Trump – and I have supported him in the past.
But I think a lot of conservatives like myself want some new choices.
I think Trump needs to consider that many in the GOP might share that same thinking. He does have what it takes to win, but he does not need to tone down the tough talk and learn some discipline.
If not, Joe Biden just might have what it takes to win a second term.
