President Donald Trump's re-election campaign has severed ties with some of its pollsters after the leak of months-old surveys showed him trailing former Vice President Joe Biden in key states, according to multiple reports.

Stephanopoulos revealed Trump was speaking to his chief of staff. In the interview, the NY congresswoman said she felt Democrats ran the risk of losing the 2020 presidential election to Trump if the Democratic party did not nominate someone willing to change the political landscape.

When asked whether Mr. Trump should be "impeached and removed from office", 43% of respondents said the president should be impeached and removed, while 7% said he should be "impeached, but not removed", making up 50% supporting impeachment.

A March poll pitted Biden against Trump, having Trump winning by four percentage points.

The president's campaign had recently dismissed leaked data from its own pollsters showing Biden with double-digit leads in some critically important states, including Florida, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin - three states Trump won in 2016.

The poll comes as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has resisted growing calls within the Democratic Party for an impeachment inquiry to begin.

Those voters told pollsters that their support was based above all on a sense that Biden was the candidate best positioned to defeat Trump in 2020. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Elizabeth Warren's (D-MA) progressive policies. Kamala Harris and Mayor Pete Buttigieg have 1-point leads.

If the president doesn't like reality, he just finds a new one.

Except her full sentence was actually "I think that we have a very real risk of losing the presidency to Donald Trump if we don't have a presidential candidate that's fighting for true transformational change in lives of working people in the United States".

"I think we need to pick a candidate that is going to be exciting to vote for, that all people: women, people of all genders, races, income levels, geographies feel excited and good about voting for", the congresswoman added.
