President Trump lags behind several prominent Democrats, including many of the declared contenders for the 2020 nomination, in a new poll from a left-leaning outlet.

In the survey from Public Policy Polling, Trump trails Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) by 7 percentage points, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) by 6 percentage points and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) by 5 percentage points.

“It really doesn’t matter which Democratic hopeful you test against him right now,” said PPP president Dean Debnam in a press release accompanying the poll. “Voters prefer any of them over Trump at halftime of his Presidency.” 

The same poll finds 45 percent of registered voters believing that Trump has committed a crime since launching his bid for president in 2015, and an additional 61 percent who say Trump should be impeached if the special counsel investigation headed by Robert Mueller turns up evidence of criminal activity by the president.

“We are still waiting on the findings of the Mueller investigation,” Debnam continued. “But voters are expecting him to find that Trump has committed crimes, and they want him to be prosecuted for them.”

PPP’s poll surveyed 761 registered voters between Jan. 19-21 and carries a margin of error of plus or minus 3.6 percentage points.
