new poll released Tuesday by Public Policy Polling finds President Trump in a dead heat with Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg in a theoretical 2020 election showdown.

It’s the first national poll of the two candidates in a head-to-head race.

When asked, “If the candidates for President next time were Democrat Mark Zuckerberg and Republican Donald Trump, who would you vote for?” the outcome of 836 registered voters’ responses showed Trump and Zuckerberg receiving 40 percent support, with 20 percent responding “not sure.”
