MetiNews.Com - Fox News in the United States spoke to a Republican Party operative
Breaking News ! Donald Trump may drop out of the 2020 race for the White House if he believes he has no chance of winning, according to reports. The claim comes from a Republican Party operative who spoke to Fox News in the US. A number of party officials are concerned about his prospects for re-election amid awful polling numbers. A recent Fox News poll had the president trailing Democrat nominee Joe Biden by 12 points, while a RealClearPolitics average of polls had Trump down almost 10 points to the former vice president.

Mr Trump has lost support from his traditional tranche of older white voters who were essential for his victory four years ago. He is also behind Mr Biden in almost all of the swing states. An anonymous GOP operative told Fox News: "It's too early, but if the polls continue to worsen, you can see a scenario where he drops out."

Mr Trump didn't take the news of the poor poll ratings well tweeting that it was "a fake poll" from Fox News "fake pollster" who should be sacked. On Monday, he was tweeting in his usual combative style. "Sorry to inform the Do Nothing Democrats, but I am getting VERY GOOD Internal Polling Numbers. "Just like 2016, the NYTimes Polls are Fake! The Fox News Polls are a JOKE! Do you think they will apologize to me and their subscribers AGAIN when I WIN? People want LAW, ORDER & SAFETY!"

Polls from every polling organisation show the President is consistently behind by similar margins. There's particularly high levels of disapproval over the President's handling of coronavirus and mass protests following the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtagh told Fox News: "Everyone knows that media polling has always been wrong about Presiden Trump - they undersample Republicans and don't screen for likely voters - in order to set false narratives." Last week, Donald Trump was warned he could face legal action if he continues to use a Rolling Stones song at his campaign rallies, the band has said. The band’s legal team is working with the world’s biggest performing rights organisation the BMI to stop him using their songs at any of his future political campaigning. The BMI has notified the Trump campaign that any future use of any Rolling Stones musical compositions will be in breach of its license agreement with the organisation.
