Transcript for Polls show Trump support is weakening heading into the fall election
So much going on in the world of politics. Let's bring in George Stephanopoulos who will be hosting "This week" later this morning. We've seen the president's poll numbers take a hit in large part it seems because of his handling of the pandemic, as we head into the fall election, how worry are Republicans? More worried by the day, Dan, as you point out, the country seems to have turned against the president for his handling of the coronavirus crisis. And has caused his poll numbers to tank. A poll showed him down 14 points to Joe Biden. Even more significantly losing to Joe Biden in every one of the six battleground states that are going to decide this election. Trump won all of them last time. He's in trouble right now. His allies know it. He's starting to get some grumbling on capitol hill. The question is, can he turn it around? Does he have a second term agenda? A bombshell report fromthe New York Times" this weekend, alleging that the Russians were offering bounties to anybody in Afghanistan who would kill a U.S. Soldier, how much pressure is the white house going to face this aggressively? Joe Biden already hitting them hard on this. A stunning report by "The new York Times." This intelligence showing Russia bounties to the Taliban. They also report that the president was briefed on this. The director of national intelligence is denying that the president knew about it but he's not denying the intelligence. Either the president knew and didn't do anything about it. If they had this kind of intelligence, interagency meetings on it, yet didn't tell the president, what does that say about the function of the white house? One of the big questions I'll be asking house speaker Nancy Pelosi this morning. It comes at a time when the relationship with Russia is fraught as always. George, thank you very much. I want to remind everyone, George has a big show this morning, as always, he's going to as he mentioned speak exclusively with house speaker Nancy Pelosi and he'll go one-on-one with the governor of Arkansas about the increasing coronavirus cases across the south. That's all coming up on "This week." And another reminder, stay up to date any time with our streaming news service called ABC news live. George, thanks again.
