In Thursday’s “TNN Live” show from 9:00 – 11:00 AM Central (M-F), we shared the results of this poll. So many people followed up with questions and also requests for the poll I just decided to put it out in a story alone.
I’ve pasted it here for you all to see. But at the end of the poll, you’ll find a .pdf that you can download or copy for yourself and save it. Heck, you probably are gonna want to share it with people you know — especially the Trump supporters who find themselves in a little slump right now (like most of us) because the Democrat Party Media hacks continue to prop up Sleep Joe who, according to them, is wiping the ground with President Trump.
Me, I just feel Joe is little more than Bernie who starred in a movie shot at his house over a weekend. Nobody noticed during the entire weekend that Bernie was actually dead! Sound a bit like what we’re seeing every time we are forced to visit Sleepy Joe in his basement bunker?
The Trump “Shock Poll”
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 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 poll showed that 59 percent approved of the President’s handling of the riots and protests but 40 percent want him to be tougher while 60 percent think Mr Biden has not been critical enough.
In addition, 67 percent prefer President Trump’s law and order message compared to 29 percent who want black community relations improved with the police.
Hopes that a black running mate for Vice President Biden will help seal the campaign for him have also been questioned in the poll with 79 percent saying it would make no difference.
And of greater concern for the Democrats is that Mr. Trump is still polling strongly with ethnic minority voters – 35 percent for black voters and 34 percent for Hispanics.
Worse still is Mr. Biden’s mental health after some stumbling performances and public concerns that he may be suffering from the early stages of dementia have also had an impact.
According to the poll 55 percent believe he is suffering from cognitive problems and 44 percent say that it means they are less likely to vote for him while 58 percent think aged 77 he is too old to be President.
Patrick Basham, the director of the Democracy Institute, said: “Between now and Election Day, the factor that will most influence the final outcome will be the debates between President Trump and his Democratic opponent. Should Biden regain some of his past skill at coasting through such encounters with moderate, platitudinous comments delivered with a smile, a little humor, and an Everyman demeanor, he will retain a good chance of enjoying a very competitive election.
“But, should Biden have even one ‘senior moment’ during which he forgets what he’s saying, or where he is, or the question posed to him, his chances of beating Trump will be somewhere between slim and none.”
The poll also appears to confirm that President Trump is benefiting from “silent support” which means it is not showing up in a lot of polls and has made Biden the odds on favorite to win.
While 77 percent of Trump voters are “enthusiastic” compared to 43 percent of Biden voters, 66 percent of Trump voters would not admit how they are voting to a friend or relative compared to just one-third of Biden backers.
But the US President comes out as top for strong leader 67 percent while Biden is seen as a consensus builder 55 percent and more likable 60 percent.
