Polls Show President Trump Has An Edge On Joe Biden In Crucial Battleground States

President Donald Trump has an edge on Joe Biden in key battleground states and also leads with independent voters in those states, according to a new poll released on Wednesday.

Trump Has a Small Lead Over Biden in Battleground States that is Outside the Margin of Error

A CNBC/Change Research poll, taken among 5,408 likely voters in the important battleground states of Arizona, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin from May 15 to May 17, showed Trump with an edge over Biden, 48 percent to 46 percent.

This makes Trump’s lead, however small, outside the 1.9 percent margin of error.

Trump Has a Significant Lead with Independent Voters in These States

Among independent voters in those states, Trump has a substantial lead, polling at 41 percent against Biden’s 32 percent.

On who would handle the COVID-19 crisis better, voters are split. However when it comes to who would do better in handling the economy as we reopen the country, Trumps 51 percent to Biden’s 40 percent.

Republicans are more optimistic about recovering from the coronavirus pandemic.  71% of Republicans think the situation is improving, while Democrats and independents tend to disagree. Only 35 percent of independents believe things are improving and that number drops to 12 percent with Democrats.

Democrats and independents were also found to believe more than Republicans that a second wave of the illness would come by the end of 2020.

More Dems and Independent See a Coronavirus Resurgence This Year than Republicans

CNBC reported, “99% of Democrats say that there is at least a 50-50 chance of a second wave in U.S. infections before the end of the year, with 94% telling pollsters that it will probably or definitely happen. On the other hand, 38% of Republicans said a second wave will probably or definitely not appear, with 41% saying there’s a 50-50 chance.”

“More than 8 in 10 independents see at least a 50-50 chance of a second wave this year, with 37% saying there will definitely be one and 19% saying it is probable,” CNBC noted. “If there is a second wave, swing-state voters are divided over who should be blamed. Democrats overwhelmingly said the two people or groups most responsible would be Trump and states that reopened their economies too soon, while Republicans said it would be the fault of China and Democrats.”

States Speak Up Asking Senate to Throw Out Impeachment

By David Kamioner | January 22, 2020

Fox News reports on Wednesday that 21 GOP Attorneys General have requested that the U.S. Senate bounce both articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, saying that the impeachment and trial, “establishes a dangerous historical precedent.”

They pulled no punches.

“If not expressly repudiated by the Senate, the theories animating both Articles will set a precedent that is entirely contrary to the Framers’ design and ruinous to the most important governmental structure protections contained in our Constitution: the separation of powers,” the AGs said. They continued.

“Even an unsuccessful effort to impeach the President undermines the integrity of the 2020 presidential election because it weaponizes a process that should only be initiated in exceedingly rare circumstances and should never be used for partisan purposes.”

In conclusion, they noted, “It cannot be a legitimate basis to impeach a President for acting in a legal manner that may also be politically advantageous.

Such a standard would be cause for the impeachment of virtually every President, past, present, and future.”

The letter was signed by the GOP Attorneys General of Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and West Virginia.

The states have hit upon a point also stated by the president’s lawyers in the trial and by Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) last week. At least three of the “jurors” in the Senate, Warren, Sanders, and Klobuchar, would directly benefit from a partisan guilty verdict.

How can a person with that kind of conflict of interest sit on the jury? In fact, the entire 47 member Senate Dem caucus would benefit.

How indeed can they sit in judgment of the man they have already said they desperately want removed from office before he is reelected?

The GOP is in the same boat, you say. They directly benefit from the president’s acquittal. But the GOP didn’t bring these charges, they did not initiate this fiasco and weaponize a process that should be reserved for solemn and dangerous constitutional questions.

Like these:

FDR trying to pack the Supreme Court to ram through more socialism? Sure, impeach and convict him.

John Kennedy’s 1960 election stealing and intimate mob ties? Boot him.

Jimmy Carter, well, just on general principle? He’s history.

But this president has done nothing wrong and these states know it. As does, the American people.
