The poll, which was conducted last week, found that 57 percent of voters polled said it was time for a new president, while 39 percent said Trump should be reelected in 2020. 

The results reflected no change from the last Monmouth University Poll survey, which was conducted in August.

Trump has since stepped up his attacks against Biden, zeroing in on the former vice president's efforts to pressure Ukraine to dismiss a senior prosecutor who at one point had investigated an energy company where Biden's son had served as a board member.
