President Donald Trump is not having a good day as he heads to Orlando, Florida for a MAGA rally where he is expected to formally announce his 2020 presidential candidacy. First right leaning paper the Orlando Sentinel endorsed "not Donald Trump" for 2020 and now Quinnipiac University's latest poll of Florida voters has Trump losing to all the Democratic front-runners.

The specter of being a one term President is not something Trump is likely to respond favorably to. Especially the news that another poll shows his support in states he won in 2020 continues to erode.

According to Quinnipiac's poll report, for the 2020 presidential race in Florida:

  • former Vice President Joseph Biden leads President Donald Trump 50 - 41 percent
  • Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders leads President Trump 48 - 42 percent
  • Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren leads Trump 47 - 43 percent
  • California Senator Kamala Harris leads Trump 45 - 44 percent
  • Former Texas U.S. Representative Beto O'Rourke leads Trump 45 - 44 percent
  • South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg leads Trump 44 - 43 percent

Despite more Floridians stating they are better off financially, 51 percent give Trump a failing job performance grade while only 44 percent give him their approval. However, 44 percent is still Trump's highest job approval in Florida since he was elected.

Of the 1,279 poll respondents, 417 were registered Democrats. The remaining 862 respondents were mostly Republican with some independents.

Some tweeted the results at the President.

Some Floridians were pleased with the results.

Florida, with their 29 electoral votes, only falls behind California (55) and Texas (38) and is on par with New York which also has 29 electors. Trump planned to focus much of his campaign there due to his narrow victory in 2016 and his lack of appeal in California and New York.

Trump's campaign intends to test a Latino voter outreach program in Florida.
