WASHINGTON, D.C. – You’ve likely seen reference to the multiple polls showing President Donald Trump trailing presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden. The basic narrative being weaved with these polls — poll are used to shape public opinion at least as often as they’re employed to honestly gauge it — is that Trump has been mortally wounded by [insert manufactured or embellished crisis here] and may come up short on November 3.
Make of those polls what you will, but there is at least one new poll that offers a glimpse at a counter-narrative in which Trump is not only not trailing Biden by such margins, but actually poised to win the electoral college comfortably on election day.
“According to the poll conducted by the Washington based thinktank the Democracy Institute, President Trump is neck and neck with his rival Joe Biden on 47 percent. However, Mr Trump would win in the electoral college system by 309 to 229 delegates because he is on course to win the crucial swing states including Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin where he outpolls Vice President Biden by 48 percent to 44 percent.
The findings come as the US President went to the iconic Mount Rushmore to make a speech attacking “the angry mobs” who want to erase America’s history.
He told the crowd of supporters: “There is a new far-left fascism that demands absolute allegiance. If you do not speak its language, perform its rituals, recite its mantras, and follow its commandments then you will be censored, banished, blacklisted, persecuted, and punished. Not gonna happen to us.”
According to the poll, the concerns over the effects of the protests appear to be boosting Mr Trump’s chances even though his campaign is believed to be flagging.
Given a choice between which phrases identified their views 71 percent chose “all lives matter” while 29 percent picked “black lives matter”.
Meanwhile, with statues of presidents and other historic figures being attacked and pulled down across the US, 74 percent said they disapproved of the actions while 77 percent disagreed with the assertion supported by many Democrat politicians that Mount Rushmore with the faces of four US Presidents carved on it “is racist.” […]”
The pendulum may have swung so Far Left that most Americans, regardless of political party, find themselves to the Right of it. Indeed, open calls for Marxist cultural revolution and assigning racist guilt to anything and everything that does not comport to that Marxist movement is a bit extreme.
Hopefully poll results like this will be recreated more and more as we inch toward the election. Every presidential election is touted as the ‘most important election of our lifetimes,’ and this one is no different. However, an honest analysis of what is at stake on November 3 gives the 2020 election a clear claim to that title.
