The CBS News-YouGov poll found 65 percent of voters say Trump will “definitely” or “probably” win the 2020 election, compared to 35 percent who say he will “definitely not” or “probably not” win.

More than nine in 10 Republicans are confident Trump will continue to be president, with more than a third of Democrats agreeing.
