The man who once said that all negative polls are fake news seems awfully fixated on polling during this presidential race of 2020. With Joe Biden enjoying a double digit lead in most polls, Trump has hit the panic button on Twitter.
No one is quite sure which “real polls” asked voters about cancel culture or the radical Left, but in every poll, Biden leads Trump on every issue – racial equality, coronavirus response, healthcare, foreign policy, police reform, and others – except for the economy. With the economy in free fall as a result of Trump’s failed COVID-19 response, the confidence the American people have in a Trump economy may soon fade, as well.
Of course, there’s also the fact that Biden served as Vice President during the longest streak of job growth during an economic recovery that was imminent when he was elected alongside President Obama.
Trump’s entire focus is on the economy, even at the risk of American lives, because he is ahead in polls only in this category. It’s the reason that he is threatening to pull funding from schools that don’t reopen. With schools closed, parents cannot return to work. It’s the reason he pushed governors to reopen their states entirely too quickly, a decision that has caused virus and death rates to go back up nearly to previous levels and rising every day. More than 130,000 Americans have died so far, but that’s a sacrifice Trump is willing to make to win in 2020.
Twitter was not supportive of Trump during his tantrum. Read some of their comments below:
