It’s Over: Trump Campaign Has Already Won Biden’s “Achilles’ Heel” Demographic
(Tea Party 247) – Leave it to President Donald Trump to go into the hospital for coronavirus one month before the general election and find himself winning in the polls by the time he is set to be discharged.
According to the Sunday Express/Democracy Institute Poll released on Sunday, while the president was still receiving treatment at Walter Reade Medical Center for the coronavirus, Trump lead former Vice President Joe Biden by one point.
Breitbart reports that the poll found 46 percent of likely voters nationwide support Trump.
45 percent support Biden.
The poll of 1,500 likely voters was conducted between September 30 and October 2 and has a margin of error of 2.5 percent, which means the results indicate a statistical tie between Trump and Biden. The poll surveyed voters in the wake the first presidential debate between Trump and Biden on September 29. Trump announced that he tested positive for Chinese coronavirus in the early hours of Friday, October 2, the last day of the poll.
With four weeks and two days until the November 3, 2020, general election, the poll results provide encouraging news to the Trump campaign after the announcement early Friday morning that the president had been diagnosed with Chinese coronavirus and is currently hospitalized and being treated at Walter Reed Hospital.
The poll released by the same polling firm one month earlier on August 29 showed Trump with a three point lead over Biden, 48 percent to 45 percent, indicating a two point drop for Trump, though Biden’s support has not increased.
The Real Clear Politics average of polls, meanwhile, without including the Sunday Express/Democracy Institute Poll found that Biden has a 7.6 lead over President Donald Trump in the national popular vote.
Biden has a 3-point lead over Trump in the national popular vote according to a IBD/TIPP poll released on Friday, while a Saturday Zogby Poll that also was not included in the Real Clear Politics average shows Biden with a two-point lead over Trump.
However, there’s a catch for Biden, and it’s a rather fitting silver bullet considering his track record on race.
While just eight percent of voters supported Donald Trump against Hillary Clinton in 2016, a stunning 18 percent support him now.
This is a massive increase.
Biden does not have the black vote as locked down as he would hope, and he’s been rather drug through the coals on this topic this year.
This is his own fault, of course, for saying things like “you ain’t black” if you vote for Trump.
In fact, this is what Democracy Institute Director Patrick Basham says the campaign’s “Achilles’ Heel.”
“To beat Trump, Biden needs nine in 10 Black votes, and lots of Black voters to cast ballots. Currently, he’s positioned to win only eight in ten, with two out of ten Black voters ready to support Trump, and overall Black turnout looking to be flat, at best,” Basham told the Sunday Express.
