Americans have more confidence in President Donald Trump being reelected in 2020 than they had in Obama being reelected in 2011, according to a new CNN poll released on Wednesday.

The poll, which surveyed a total of 1,006 adults, found that 54% of those interviewed predict that Trump will be reelected, while 41% think he will lose in 2020. Comparatively, exactly 50% of people polled in May, 2011, believed that then-President Obama would win a second term.

The CNN poll was conducted by SSRS from May 28-31, and it has a margin of error of =/-3.8%.

The numbers have improved for President Trump recently. In December, 51% of people thought that Trump would lose in 2020.

The poll also shows that the resistance could be losing confidence. In December, 81% of adults who dislike Trump stated that they thought the president would lose, but that number dropped 14 percentage point to 67% in CNN’s most recent poll. The numbers for Trump supporters have hovered at or over 80% in the same time period.
