(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- The 2016 election proved that polls underestimate the support for Donald Trump and the Republicans, and despite continued efforts to portray the president’s campaign as a losing battle, a brand new poll shows the Democrats losing badly to the Republicans in November.
A series of monthly polls from the Democracy Institute and the Sunday Express shows that President Trump has a substantial lead over the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. Trump leads Biden with 48% to 46%, which is the clearest lead in the race so far.
Perhaps most importantly, though, the president has a substantial lead over Biden in swing states Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Iowa, and Florida, of 48% to 43%. A five-point lead in a race that was expected to be tight is extremely substantial. If the November election works out how this poll predicts, then Trump would win the election with 309 electoral college votes to Biden’s measly 229.
Amidst a sea of polls from left-wing media outlets polling companies that frequently oversample Democrats, the poll is a refreshing change and seems to better reflect the fact that Joe Biden has very little enthusiasm among Democrat voters.
In the polls, Trump leads Biden by two points, with 47% to Biden’s 45%, in Florida. In Minnesota, he leads 46% to 45%, and in New Hampshire, he leads with a sizeable 46% to Biden’s 43%.
The poll also asked people why they support each candidate, and the data shows that voters are more confident that President Trump will maintain a better hold over the economy. A third of voters told pollsters that the economy is their top issue in this election, perhaps unsurprisingly following the disastrous effect of lockdown. 57% of voters also said that they think Trump is better capable of managing the economy, compared to 43% for Biden.
Those numbers mean that it’s not just Republicans that think Trump is better at managing the economy. A substantial number of Democrats, should these numbers pan out nationally, think that Biden would not be good for the economy. That probably has something to do with the fact that the once-moderate candidate recently adopted Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s insane Green New Deal.
In a piece for the Express, Patrick Basham, who is the Director of the Democracy Institute, suggested that Biden’s campaign could have already reached its “high water mark.”
“Although Biden remains in a competitive race with Donald Trump, and may well do so until election day, his support isn’t growing,” he explained. “And, tellingly, almost all of the issues that matter most to voters are trending in President Trump’s favour.”
2020 might not just be a repeat of 2016, but at this rate, it could see Trump with an even bigger win in many key swing states.
