Trump's Brutal Week Has Left the GOP Worried About an Election Landslide - 2020-10-06
President Trump heads into the final four weeks before the election far behind Joe Biden — and he's running out of time to turn around his flagging reelection campaign.
A disastrous debate performance last Tuesday, followed almost immediately by Trump's own hospitalization from the coronavirus, has only added to the president's election woes. Fresh public and private polling indicates that the debate further damaged Trump's standing when he was already trailing. And while there isn't enough data to see how exactly the COVID outbreak in the White House will impact the race, early numbers suggest the events are hurting more than helping him.
There's still time until Election Day. But right now, Republicans are grim about where the race stands — and increasingly worried that the president could get blown out, cost them the Senate, and pad Democrats' House majority.
