Some of the pundits believe that Donald Trump does not want to win a second term. Why? He keeps undermining himself in full view of the voters. Plus, this has become not so much fun for him anymore. A new poll shows him losing to former Vice President Joe Biden in Georgia, 49 percent to 45 percent. A mere six percent were not sure.
The poll’s results follow, showing 44 percent of the voters had a favorable opinion of the president and 49 percent did not. Only seven percent were not sure, according to Hotline’s exclusive:
When POTUS could draw in tens of thousands of fans to his allies, the job was fun. When he could go to Saudi Arabia and be treated like a king, he had fun. When the economy was booming, he had fun promotion what he had supposedly achieved. Now, even that has lost its final blush of fun.
The coronavirus pandemic has caused Trump’s weak governing structure to teeter on the edge of complete devastation. He has weakened it by sending a wrecking ball to so many of its institutions. So, what does he do now?
He does nothing about his friend Russian President Vladimir Putin putting a bounty on American and British soldiers in Afghanistan. The US president refuses to wear a mask, because he does not like how one looks on him. He invites huge crowds into close spaces, his voters, and risks their lives to this seriously contagious virus.
The Reverend Raphael Warnock is the pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church, which is where Martin Luther King Jr. preached nonviolence decades ago. Warnock has 11 brothers and sisters, and they all grew up in public housing. The reverend has “worked to improve people’s lives by making healthcare affordable and accessible.”
He is also a proponent of the right to vote after he became the first in his family to graduate from college. His reason for running for the Georgia Senate seat, was:
‘Too many decisions are made in corporate boardrooms and Washington bedrooms, not for the people.’
Warnock refuses to accept any PAC money:
‘Having heard this, let me ask you again if the special election for US Senate were held today, and the candidates were Warnock (D), Lieberman (D), Ed Tanver (D), Loeffler (R) and Doug Collins (R) who would you vote for:”
Trump does not look as if he is a man in the middle of a presidential election campaign. As doctors and nurses in hospitals throughout the South beg for beds, POTUS heads out to his golf course. As peaceful protesters sit outside of the White House gates, he brings in a military of unknown persuasion. Then, he orders them to shoot rubber bullets and tear gas into the crowd. He orders his military to shoot flash-bang grenades at the legal protesters and threatens 10-year sentences for damaging a statue.
End Citizens United hired A Public Policy Polling Poll and relayed the results exclusively to The National Journal’s Hotline. Former Vice President Joe Biden leads Trump, 49 percent to 45 percent in a “close race.”
In another poll question, Public Policy Polling asks how Georgia voters felt about Warnock:
‘Reverence Raphael Warnock is a champion for voting rights [and leads] the fight against voter suppression.’
Representative Doug Collins (R-GA) leads among Republicans in a tight primary Senate race. The poll found Senator Kelly Loeffler (D) coming in right behind Collins with 21 percent of the vote. The Reverend Raphael Warnock (D) was close behind at 20 percent. Then, the entrepreneur Matt Lieberman (D) and US Attorney Ed Tarver followed with 11 percent and three percent respectively.
When it came down to a “head-to-head” matchup, Collins led Warnock but only by two points, 43 percent to 41 percent. Warnock won over Loeffler in a similar fashion with 43 percent to 40 percent vote.
According to ECU and Let America Vote President Tiffany Muller, ]even with “lower name recognition” the Reverend Warnock could win:
‘Despite lower name recognition than his opponents, Reverend Raphael Warnock is in a strong position to win this race. As his campaign diverts more resources to promote Warnock’s message and background, he’ll consolidate support from key voting groups in Georgia. These results spell trouble for Senator Loeffler and Rep. Collins.’
Given how the questions were asked, the poll skews toward Warnock, thereby, giving him a biased rating. If the poll was meant to inform the Georgia voters, it was successful. If the poll was meant to determine voters’ opinions, then the phrasing of its questions called into question its verifiably.
