Washington, DC, United States (4E) – American millionaires — both Republican and Democrat — want DonaldTrump out of office in 2020.
A new survey reveals that just 34% of millionaires will vote to re-elect Trump president, including 62% of Republican millionaires. This surprising revelation is sharply lower than the 45% of millionaires who said in a 2017 survey they voted for Trump in 2016.
The latest poll also found that a significant number of millionaires — 20% overall, including 18% of Republicans — don’t even think Trump will be on the 2020 ballot. The survey was conducted by CNBC as part of its twice-a-year Millionaire Survey.
The survey polled 750 investors with $1 million or more in investable assets. Some 40% of those polled consider themselves Republicans; 32.4% independents and 25.7% Democrats.
Significantly more Democratic millionaires (36%) said they donated to political causes over the past two years compared to Republicans (20%).
Voting Trump out of office was the No. 1 goal of 54% of Democratic millionaires. This was the same aim of 28% of independents while only 6% of Republicans millionaires agreed with this statement. For now, who Democrats and Independents want to replace Trump with is a question with no clear answer.
For Democrats, 38 percent of respondents believe former Vice President Joe Biden will win the party’s nomination. Republicans and Independents were more likely than Democrats to say Biden will win the
Overall, 22 percent responded “Other,” while 10 percent say Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) will be the nominee. Not a single democrat millionaire thinks Oprah Winfrey will be the Democratic nominee. On the other hand, 3% of Republicans and 3% of Independents do. No Democrats have officially declared their intention to run.
The issues that matter most to millionaire voters in the next election vary widely by party. The survey shows 18% of Republican millionaires say taxes and government spending is what they’ll consider most when they think about choosing a president in 2020. The next most important issues are immigration reform (17%) and the economy (16%).
