The 2020 election is a year away, but Donald Trump has some serious ground to cover if he doesn't want it to be a historical blowout.

A Washington Post- ABC News poll released Tuesday shows that Trump loses by double digits to the top Democratic contenders.

Vice President Joe Biden (56%-39%); Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts (54%-39%); Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont (56%-39%); South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg (52%-41%); and Sen. Kamala Harris of California (52%-41%) all have big leads over the president.


According to Gallup, Trump's approval rating is at 41% and his disapproval rating is 57%, three percentage points lower than his high of 60%.

One area where Trump should be specifically alarmed is with independents who are around 30% of the electorate.

While Trump won independents by 4% in 2016, in 2020, he is very unpopular with them. A recent poll published in The Washington Post found Trump trailing Biden by 17%, Warren and Sanders by 16%, Kamala Harris by 11%, and Pete Buttigieg by 11%.

Trump's poll numbers look so bad that even the folks at Fox News can't spin them into anything positive.

On Tuesday morning, Fox News political editor Chris Stirewalt told anchor Bill Hemmer that if the election were held today, Biden would enjoy a solid victory over Trump.

"If the election were held tomorrow and it was Joe Biden verses Donald Trump and it was a snap election, Joe Biden would beat Donald Trump, and it wouldn't be a very close race," Stirewalt said in a video posted to Raw Story. "But, what Republicans also know is they're going to spend a billion dollars roughing up Joe Biden."


But he cautioned that in elections, money isn't necessarily everything.

"The lesson for Trump here is, and he's gotta remember this . . . if money mattered and organization mattered that much, Jeb Bush would have won the Republican nomination in 2016 and Hillary Clinton would be the president today," he added.

Skeptics will point to 2016 election polls that showed Hillary Clinton with a lead over Trump. But the average of the top 13 final national polls had Clinton up by an average of 3.1% and, on election day, she won the popular vote by 2.1%.

But, as we know, presidential elections are won in the electoral college. So how do Biden and Trump stack up?

According to The New York Times, Biden leads Trump in five of the six battleground states that went Republican in 2016. Biden is ahead in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Florida, and Arizona. Trump has the lead in North Carolina and Michigan is a tie.

Sanders and Trump are even at three states a piece and Warren lags behind Trump, leading in just one state.

Between Alexa, Siri, and Google, artificial intelligence is quickly changing us and the way we live. We no longer have to get up to turn on the lights or set the thermostat, we can find the fastest route to work with a click, and, most importantly, tag our friends in pictures. But interacting with the world isn't the only thing AI is making easier – now we can use it save the world, too.

An anonymous White House official claims President Trump cruelly limited Hispanic immigrants in their new book, "A Warning."

The book, to be released on November 19, gives an alleged insider account of the Trump White House and paints a picture of the president as a chaotic man who lacks the mental and moral acumen required for the job.

The anonymous staffer says that Trump once feigned a Hispanic accent and made fun of women attempting to immigrate to the U.S.

Since 1992, the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous has been holding reunion ceremonies between Holocaust survivors and rescuers once a year. But the tradition is coming to an end, as many have died or are too frail to travel. What might be the last reunion of its kind took place when a 92-year-old woman met up with the two surviving family members that she helped hide during the Holocaust, and their descendants.

Sarah Yanai and Yossi Mor introduced Melpomeni Dina (nee Gianopoulou) to their almost 40 family members, all decedents of the Mordechai family, the family of seven that Dina and her two sisters hid during WWII. "There are no words to describe this feeling," Dina told the Jeruselum Post. "It is very emotional for us to be together again."

When parents choose not to vaccinate their children, they are taking what they believe to be calculated risk: to protect my child from a vaccination injury, such as autism, I will put them at risk of developing a host of diseases, including measles, tetanus, mumps, polio, hepatitis B, and diphtheria.

They also choose to put others, especially babies that are too young to be immunized, at risk of life-threatening illnesses.

This reasoning is incredibly selfish given the fact that there is absolutely no evidence that vaccinations cause autism.

Popular Mobilization (or PopMob) a Portland, Oregon group comprised of anti-fascists and leftists, came up with a brilliant way to make unwitting white supremacists raise money for a charity that helps undocumented people.

PopMob asked its supporters to pledge a nickel, dime, or any small amount of money for every white supremacist that showed up to a rally that took place on August 17.

Some 300 fascists from white supremacist groups, including the Proud Boys, Patriot Prayer, and the Three Percenters, attended a rally on the Portland waterfront that lasted only about 30 minutes.

When all the donations were tallied up, the PopMob Fundraiser generated $36,017.69.
