A majority of voters said they expect President Trump to win reelection in 2020, according to a poll released Wednesday by Politico/Morning Consult.

The poll found that 56 percent of voters expect Trump to be reelected, including 35 percent of Democrats, 85 percent of Republicans, and 51 percent of independents.

Almost a third of respondents said they will be voting with Trump at the top of their minds, while around 40 percent said they will be thinking about him “a lot.”

More than 80 percent of voters said they are motivated to vote and 69 percent said they are “very motivated.”

“President Trump’s reelection prospects seem to be energizing voter enthusiasm across the political spectrum,” Tyler Sinclair, Morning Consult’s vice president, told Politico. “Our data points show that Republicans and Democrats are equally inclined to say they are motivated and likely to vote in next year’s election.”
