This is the biggest 2020 mistake the Democrats could make. By Jill Filipovic Updated at 6:16 PM ET, Wed May 22, 2019

(CNN)  The economy, voters say, is strong. Most Americans say they are better off financially than they were in 2016; more say that things stayed the same than say they got worse. And yet many more voters say President Donald Trump is doing a poor job than say he’s doing a good one.

This is all according to a new Quinnipiac poll, and it should give Democrats hope for 2020. At this point, the election is the left’s to lose.
Polls this early in the game won’t necessarily mean much come Election Day, but the latest Quinnipiac numbers suggest that Americans are disenchanted with their President. They disagree on his handling of American foreign policy, including our dealings with China and Iran. The Quinnipiac poll didn’t ask about trustworthiness, but I suspect that’s where Americans (rightly) see Trump failing. He’s a mendacious narcissist who is very much out of his depth in the White House; his administration has been plagued by scandals that would have brought down any other organization with even an ounce of shame. Any perverse entertainment value of his presidency has waned, particularly as his actions and those of his administration erode faith in American institutions and embolden some of the darkest actors in our society, including white supremacists. His asinine behavior toward China and Iran makes us less secure and threatens our economy.
