Trump fans line up for re-election rally

ROUGH CUT (no reporter narration) STORY: Trump supporters were lining up outside the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida early Tuesday, in hopes of getting a ticket to see the president kick off his 2020 re-election campaign.

Trump formally launches what may be an uphill battle to persuade voters to give him four more years in office, as he bets a strong U.S. economy will outweigh voter concerns about his unorthodox style and polarizing policies.

At the evening rally, Trump, who has long made it known he is running for re-election, will begin making his case with gusto for a second term.

The Trump of 2020 will most certainly bear a strong resemblance to the Trump of 2016 - brash and eager to bash his Democratic opponents and promote tough policies on trade and immigration.

A Reuters/Ipsos poll on June 11 gave Trump a 40% job approval rating, compared with 57% who disapproved.

Other opinion polls have shown him running consistently behind his main Democratic challengers, such as former Vice President Joe Biden, in key battleground states.

Starting his 2020 push in Florida, which the former New York businessman considers his second home, shows how important the state is to Trump's re-election hopes.

The Republican president would like to recreate the state-by-state electoral map he assembled to defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016.
