Readers appeared to love this format for updates on the election: begin with consultant quotes after which fill in the main points. Here we go…
“The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-eight percent (48%) disapprove.”
“Weakening support among Latinos is clearly an issue for Biden in Florida, but it’s also part of a larger problem. Polls show him slightly trailing Clinton among the Latino population nationwide. And Clinton already lost Latino support relative to President Barack Obama’s 2012 performance.”– Laura Ramirez and Hunter Walker, Yahoo News
“Speaking during a virtual roundtable with small business owners in Arizona, Harris vowed that they will have an ally in the White House with the campaign’s “Build Back Better” initiative.
“However, the California senator appeared to briefly recommend that she was on the high of the Democratic ticket.
‘A Harris administration, together with Joe Biden as the president of the United States,’ she mentioned. She rapidly clarified, ‘The Biden-Harris administration will provide access to $100 billion in low-interest loans and investments from minority business owners.’”—Fox News
*As we mentioned on Monday, President Trump’s approval rankings have been in and around 50% for a while, in response to Rasmussen Reports. With a press that would not be extra forgiving or extra unctuous, President Obama’s approval rankings have been 51%-53% at a comparable time in his first time period. Imagine what President Trump’s numbers could be if he weren’t the goal of continuous criticism by the Media Establishment.
*I can’t say each day, however, most each day, the margin by which pro-abortion former vice-chairman Joe Biden leads President Trump in “battleground” states shrinks. Florida, in fact, is essential to the President as is North Carolina. President Trump is tied in Florida and forward by 2 factors in one ballot of North Carolina, tied in one other. And, as native Minnesotan, I can nearly assure that the ultimate final result in the Gopher State will very shut.
*Speaking of panic, actually each day of late there may be one other story making the identical level: President Trump’s approval amongst Latinos is growing and never simply in Florida. As Laura Ramirez and Hunter Walker wrote right now,
As the 2016 election confirmed as soon as once more, a comparatively small variety of voters in swing states can show decisive. Although Clinton handily gained the nationwide fashionable vote, Trump secured an Electoral College win as a result of he gained Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania by nearly 79,000 whole votes.
Those three essential swing states, which collectively ship 46 Electoral College votes, are residence to over 1.6 million Latinos.
And then there’s….
*Pro-abortion Sen. Kamala Harris, Biden’s operating mate. In a slip that may amaze even Sigmund Freud, Harris first mentioned, “A Harris administration, together with Joe Biden as the president of the United States,” solely to rapidly attempt to right her fake pas by including, “The Biden-Harris administration…”
In and of itself, her blunder was no huge deal. But it does remind everybody that nobody expects Biden to run for a second time period, ought to he win a primary and the way Harris might nicely be the de facto President if Biden’s incapability to remain on the level, not to mention full sentences, grows even worse.
By the way, in which, writing at National Review Online, Dan McLaughlin asks, “Are the Pollsters Wrong about Trump Again?”
With respect to the polls, he presents “three optimistic cases for Trump.” The second is “the current polls are premature, capturing only a snapshot, and we should expect things to tighten by Election Day.”
They are solely a snapshot. This is at all times true of any ballot, however by no means extra so than in 2020. Add the whole lot that has occurred in the final 8 or 9 months, and this 12 months’ presidential election is genuinely distinctive.
And all this earlier than the three presidential debates. A reminder. The first 90-minute lengthy debate takes place Tuesday, September 29, from 9-10:30 pm ES. A should view.
