Pollster says Trump will 'double down' on voter base in 2020

Pollster Dritan Nesho told Hill.TV's Jamal Simmons in an interview that aired on Thursday that President TrumpDonald John TrumpPompeo changes staff for Russia meeting after concerns raised about top negotiator's ties: report House unravels with rise of 'Les Enfants Terrible' Ben Carson: Trump is not a racist and his comments were not racist MORE will double down on his voter base to get reelected in 2020. 

"I think he'll double down because the majority of people who do show up at the voting booth and in polls tend to skew older," Nesho, the CEO of HarrisX, said on "What America's Thinking."

"Yes, Trump has been losing ground with younger voters, especially millennial voters, but he's got plenty of middle-aged and older voters in his coalition to be able to push through," he continued. 

Trump's base has been loyal to him throughout his presidency, despite turbulent events such as special counsel Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) Swan MuellerTop Republican considered Mueller subpoena to box in Democrats Kamala Harris says her Justice Dept would have 'no choice' but to prosecute Trump for obstruction Dem committees win new powers to investigate Trump MORE's probe into Russia's election meddling and the partial government shutdown over border security. 

The president has also worked to appeal to his base on numerous issues, most notably border security and his campaign promise to build a wall along the southern border. 

A Gallup tracking poll released earlier this month showed Trump's approval rating at 89 percent among Republicans, but 45 percent overall.
