Democrats are convinced they have victory in hand in 2020.
Liberals see Donald Trump’s poll numbers and believe there is no way the President can claw his way to re-election.
And now Donald Trump got hit with one shocking reality check about these key 2020 states.
The narrative surrounding the 2020 Presidential Election has largely been shaped by meaningless national polls showing hypothetical matchups between Donald Trump and the leading Democrat contenders.
But the national popular vote does not determine the winner of the election.
A candidate must reach 270 Electoral College votes to win the presidency.
To that end, the New York Times/Siena University poll sought to determine Donald Trump’s standing in the key battleground states that will decide the election.
The Times and Siena surveyed Arizona, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin to see how President Trump fared against Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders.
The news was not good for Warren and Sanders.
Warren trailed Trump by six points and the President led Sanders by four in these six crucial states.
The New York Times reported that, “The results suggest that Ms. Warren, who has emerged as a front-runner for the Democratic nomination, might face a number of obstacles in her pursuit of the presidency. The poll supports concerns among some Democrats that her ideology and gender — including the fraught question of ‘likability’ — could hobble her candidacy among a crucial sliver of the electorate. And not only does she underperform her rivals, but the poll also suggests that the race could be close enough for the difference to be decisive.”
Former Vice President Biden fared the best running in a statistical dead heat with President Trump by holding a within the margin of error two-point lead over Trump.
But despite Biden’s narrow lead in the battleground polls, the survey did not paint a rosy picture of his prospects for victory.
“The Times/Siena results and other data suggest that the president’s advantage in the Electoral College relative to the nation as a whole remains intact or has even grown since 2016, raising the possibility that the Republicans could — for the third time in the past six elections — win the presidency while losing the popular vote,” the Times reported.
Polling analyst Nate Cohen dug deeper into the numbers and found even more good news for the President in that his base stands rock solid and the 2016 swing voters still strongly supported the President.
“…we find the president continuing to excel among white voters without a degree, and coming close to his ’16 margins there. The Trump voters who supported Democrats in the midterms say they’ll back Trump by 2-1 margins Trump leads all in Obama-Trump counties, precincts,” Cohen wrote.
Fake and corrupt news media members scheme to hypnotize the American people into thinking President Trump is a goner in 2020 to suppress the Republican vote.
But the polling in states that forge the path to the 270 Electoral College votes show the President holds an edge that will be difficult to overcome.
