President Trump on Monday discounted polls showing him trailing the “Motley Crew” of Democratic presidential hopefuls.
“Only Fake Polls show us behind the Motley Crew. We are looking really good, but it is far too early to be focused on that,” he wrote on Twitter. “Much work to do! MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
Trump’s reaction to the surveys come as a Fox News Poll shows five Democratic candidates are ahead of him and a report that said his re-election campaign is going to cut ties with some pollsters after leaked internal polls show the president behind in key battleground states.
The Fox News survey released Sunday found that if the election were held now former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Kamala Harris and Mayor Pete Buttigieg would all defeat Trump.
Biden, the front-runner in the Democratic field, would top Trump 49 to 39 percent.
NBC News reported on Sunday that the Trump campaign is parting ways with a number of pollsters after polls showed Biden leading the president in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Florida and Michigan — states that are critical to his re-election bid.
The polls, leaked to news agencies last week, also show Trump in trouble in Iowa, North Carolina, Georgia, Maine and Ohio.
Trump is kicking off his 2020 campaign Tuesday with a Make America Great Again rally in Orlando.
