(Liberty Bell) – One of the things we’ve been hearing a lot about lately is how former Vice President Joe Biden has been thumping Trump in the polls taken in key battleground states. It seems these individuals have totally forgotten how wrong the polls were when taken back in 2016, failing to indicate that Trump even had a chance of winning, let alone that he would actually pull off the victory.
Well, new polls, including one that is very much left-leaning, are indicating that Trump is catching up to Biden in these states in a very big way. If you listen closely, you can hear Biden mumbling to himself and telling anecdotes about his leg hairs, oblivious to the fact he’s even running for president.
Here’s more on this from the good folks at The Daily Wire:
New polls, at least one of which leans solidly leftward, show President Donald Trump gaining ground on presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in nearly all “battleground” states and seems to indicate Trump is gaining ground in places like Minnesota, where civil unrest has been the worst.
Change Research, which operates as polling apparatus largely for Democratic candidates and organizations, is out with a new poll Wednesday showing Trump making big gains on Biden in “toss-up” states across the board, from Arizona to Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Florida — states Biden led by a considerable margin just two weeks ago.
The latest Change Research poll shows Trump comfortably within the margin of error in Arizona, Florida, and Pennsylvania, and quickly narrowing the gap in Michigan and Wisconsin, where he’s behind by just 4 and 5 points, respectively.
The new poll, which likely leans favorably toward Biden, tracks along with other individual state-based polls, particularly one out of Minnesota, which, as Hot Air points out, has been moving in Trump’s direction since late May, just after the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police officers and the subsequent protests and unrest.
“Between the explosion of violence in Minnesota since the George Floyd protests began and the traction the ‘defund the police’ movement has gotten there vis-a-vis Minneapolis PD, swing voters may be more receptive to the ‘law and order’ option on the ballot than they are in other states,” Hot Air speculates. “That’s big news for Trump since he’s been hammering his law-and-order message nationally lately, both rhetorically and via actions like building up the federal presence in Portland.”
Now, this doesn’t mean that the message Trump is pushing is what is resonating with the American people. It seems that this indicates that Biden’s message if failing to connect with folks the way his campaign wants it to.
What’s really killing the Democratic Party’s efforts to get folks on board with their message and Biden’s campaign is the civil unrest going on in the country and how those on the left are refusing to take actionable steps to reestablish law and order in many of the country’s biggest cities. Folks are tired of violence and chaos.
And then there’s the overreaction to the coronavirus. Democratic mayors and governors have embraced tyranny as a means of attempting to “save lives,” and it’s not going over well with average Americans who are used to living their lives without so much government interference. Things like mask mandates are extremely unpopular with voters, even those who aren’t diehard conservatives.
This could be pushing people away from Biden and into the arms of Donald Trump. As always, the Democratic Party is its own worst enemy.
