The Monmouth University Poll found that 36 percent of Americans support Trump's second term, while 59 percent indicated they want to see someone new in the White House after the next presidential election.

Sixteen percent of Republicans said they would rather have a new president, according to the poll, compared to 92 percent of Democrats and 59 percent of independents said the same.


Trump's approval rating has consistently hovered in the low 40 percent range in Monmouth's polling. This month's survey found 43 percent of respondents approve of the president, while 49 percent disapprove. Those figures are largely unchanged from an August poll.

Wednesday's poll surveyed 802 people from Nov. 9-12 -- a few days after the midterms --  and has a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points.

With the midterm elections in the rearview mirror, a number of Democrats are expected to officially announce in the coming months whether they will campaign for the presidency in 2020.

Trump has recently lashed out at Warren, Biden and others during campaign rallies and in interviews, presaging potential clashes on the 2020 campaign trail.

Trump filed paperwork to run for re-election in 2020 on the day he was inaugurated in 2017. Last week, Vice President Pence confirmed he will run on the ticket with Trump after the president was asked about it during a press conference.
