Trump faces bleak polls five months before election


WASHINGTON - Donald Trump has earned the nickname "Teflon Don" for how often he's survived crises and scandals that would have felled other politicians. But a series of bleak polls in recent weeks have both Democrats and Republicans wondering if he's finally lost his protective coating.

Former vice president Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, now leads Trump by more than 8 percentage points in an average of recent national polls by RealClearPolitics. That's a larger average margin than Trump ever trailed Hillary Clinton by in 2016.

"I think it's increasingly in jeopardy," said Republican pollster Frank Luntz of Trump's reelection potential. "The president is not communicating that he feels your pain. And pain is what an awful lot of people feel right now."
