#LOSER:

Trump's national emergency looks like a 2020 loser (Aaron Blake, February 19, 2019, washington Post)

A new NPR/PBS/Marist College poll was launched when Trump declared his national emergency four days ago. And the verdict isn't a good one: The poll shows 61 percent of registered voters disapprove of Trump's national emergency declaration, vs. 36 percent who approve of it. [...]

Perhaps more important in the Marist poll, though, is this question: "Does President Trump declaring a national emergency to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border make you more likely or less likely to vote for him for reelection in 2020?" On that question, a majority -- 54 percent -- says this is a motivator to vote against Trump, while just 33 percent say it's more likely to make them vote for Trump.
