Every election, there is a handful of states that decide the election.
2020 is no different and just a handful of key battlegrounds will decide President Trump’s fate.
And Donald Trump sat in stunned silence when he saw the results of this swing state poll.
Ever since the recount during the 2000 Presidential Election and the Bush v. Gore court case, Florida emerged as the quintessential swing state.
No Republican can win the White House without Florida’s 29 Electoral College votes and given the state’s high number of non-party affiliated voters, the Sunshine State usually is decided by the narrowest of margins.
Although Barack Obama carried Florida twice, Democrats have not won a statewide race in Florida since 1994.
The state is trending red, but the high number of Hispanic voters and growing suburban counties gives Democrats hope their nominee can flip the state blue in 2020.
But that may all be for naught.
A brand new poll by Florida Atlantic University shows President Trump leading all of his main Democrat Party rivals and hitting the magical 50 percent mark against each possible Democrat Party nominee.
The President leads Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren by identical 50 to 49 margins.
Donald Trump holds a four-point lead over California Senator Kamala Harris 52 to 48.
Americans can expect to see a lot of close polling data of Florida over the 14 months.
In 2016 the final Real Clear Politics polling average of Florida showed Trump clinging to a slim 0.4 percent lead going into the election.
And Trump ended up carrying Florida with a 48.6 to a 47.4 victory over Hillary Clinton on Election Night.
Democrats and many members of the fake news media count Donald Trump out in 2020.
They contend his comments about immigration and hard line policies will alienate the state’s booming Hispanic population.
But many Hispanics in Florida hail from Venezuela and other South American countries that fled the ravages of socialism.
In 2018, Republican Ron DeSantis – a freedom caucus member and Trump ally – defeated Democrat Andrew Gillum despite all the polls showing Gillum ahead of DeSantis.
DeSantis’s attacks on Gillum crippled Gillum’s ability to blow DeSantis out of the water with Hispanic voters.
That followed Donald Trump’s better than expected performance with Hispanics in 2016 due to his strong showing with Cuban voters infuriated with Barack Obama for toadying up the Castro government in Havana.
In 2020 Republicans expect to run that same play.
The President has taken a strong stand on dealing with the socialist governments in Cuba and Venezuela.
That’s because unlike the fake news media, the President and his team understand that Hispanic voters are a diverse group of people that are not monolithic in their interests or voting patterns.
That, and the President’s promise to never allow America to turn into a socialist country, strikes as a more potent appeal for voters than amnesty for illegal aliens – which is how the fake news media often simplistically describes how Republicans can appeal to Latino voters.
