Donald Trump ended the Republican National Convention with a bang.
For 70 minutes, he provided a strong contrast between his record and vision for American and Biden’s 47 years in D.C.
He celebrated what he’s already accomplished in the White House. And he warned Americans what a Joe Biden presidency would do to our economy, recovery, and future.
After, a new poll from a swing state was released. It is surprising:
Trump 47% (+2)
@trafalgar_group, LV, 8/14-23
After being behind Joe Biden in most major polls throughout the Summer, Trump is now leading Biden in the swing state of Michigan.
According to one poll, he has a two-point lead over Joe Biden.
This is pretty telling and suggests Trump is getting a bump after his convention appearance.
That is in sharp contrast with Joe Biden, who appears to have gotten no boost from the DNC.
In fact, some are wondering why there were few polls released soon after the DNC. Critics are suggesting the Democrats saw a dip in support and are refusing to release their numbers.
Whatever the case, the current polling is unlike 2016—at least right now. At no point during the 2016 race did any major poll give Trump a lead over Hillary.
Many accused the media of producing suppression polls aimed at discouraging supporters of Trump.
There doesn’t seem to be much change in the way polling has been conducted in the last four years. Yet Trump is not only matching Biden in many states, but he is leading.
Is this a sign of things to come? Will 2020 be a “close” race as some are predicting or do these polls point to a big red landslide?
- President Trump ended the RNC with a powerful, 70-minute speech.
- Soon after, a poll from Michigan was released, revealing Trump has a 2-point lead.
- Biden appears to be sliding in the polls, since his DNC appearance.
