More About Liz Peek
"The speech Tuesday night was an important way for the president to reboot his standing with the American people. After a contentious several months and an unpopular partial government shutdown that hammered his approval ratings, Trump had a chance to remind the entire country why he was elected in 2016."
"Recent polls suggest that any number of Democrats could beat President Trump in a head-to-head match-up. Two things to remember: one, a candidate’s polls always sink once they become the nominee; second, Trump’s disapproval a couple of days before the 2016 election showed him with the highest unfavorables (61 percent) ever recorded for a presidential candidate. Hillary Clinton’s negatives were better, at 52 percent, but still a record."
"Nikki Haley has said she will not run for president in 2020. But would she run for vice president in 2020 and then president in 2024? That could be the right path for the U.N. Ambassador, who has announced she will retire at the end of this year and who is definitely presidential material."
"In 2010, as President Obama’s popularity spiraled downward, Jeff Greenfield wrote for CBS News that “historically, no president in modern times has significantly improved his approval numbers in his second year.” Don’t look now, but some polls show President Trump is doing just that."
