Pres. Trump campaign fires pollsters after leaked numbers show him trailing Joe Biden

The Trump campaign fired several pollsters after internal polling numbers from his own campaign that show he’s trailing potential Democratic challenger Joe Biden were leaked, CBS News has learned. President Trump called those polls “fake.”

But 2020 comes with new challenges. The Trump campaign’s internal polling shows the president trailing the former vice president in critical battleground states – 39% to 55% in Pennsylvania, 41% to 51% in Wisconsin, and by 7 points in Florida.

The Trump team says the poll is from March, though Mr. Trump has repeatedly denied it existed at all. Still, he’s zooming in on Biden.

The president appeared to reference the poll in a tweet Sunday night, claiming “almost 70 percent say don’t impeach” — not exactly an accurate interpretation.
