Democrats and the fake news media are predicting a landslide victory for Joe Biden.
But that may have just gone up in flames.
That’s because Joe Biden got some head-turning bad news about this swing state.
In 2016, Donald Trump came within just tens of thousands of votes in flipping Minnesota red for the first time in generations.
Not even Ronald Reagan carried Minnesota in his 49-state landslide in 1984.
Polls showing Joe Biden leading Donald Trump by double digits nationally led many pundits to scoff at the idea that Donald Trump could flip Minnesota red in 2020.
But a new poll from Emerson showed a tight race in Minnesota and that the President was closer to Joe Biden in 2020 than he was to Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Emerson wrote of their poll’s findings:
A new Emerson College Poll finds Minnesota is competitive again in 2020, with 50% of voters planning on supporting former VP Joe Biden and 47% intending to vote for President Trump. While the race is close, only 3% of voters remain undecided. Of voters who plan to vote by mail, 91% plan to vote for Biden, and of those who plan to vote in person, 68% plan to vote for Trump.
President Trump’s approval rating amongst Minnesota voters is slightly underwater, with 46% approval, and 51% disapprove of his job performance, with 3% remaining neutral. Among independent voters, Trump’s approval is at 45% approval, and 47% disapproval.
Minnesota is a Midwestern industrial state with a large of number noncollege educated voter population as well as working-class white voters.
It fits the demographic profile of an emerging red state.
As the Democrat Party continues to move left and assumes its role as the party ruled by Wall Street titans on the East Coast and Silicon Valley tech oligarchs on the West Coast, working class voters of all races continue to trend to the Republican Party.
Fake news pundits focus on the GOP erosion in the suburbs and the college-educated voters moving into the Democrat column while ignoring the push-and-pull of this voter realignment.
No one thought Minnesota would be close in 2016.
Everyone is expecting it to be a blowout in 2020.
The pundits and Democrats may have not learned their lesson from the last election when the polls under-sampled noncollege educated voters.
Right now, polls show President Trump behind Joe Biden.
But Emerson’s polls show a much closer race than the rest of the legacy media’s polls.
While most so-called “mainstream” media polls show Biden up anywhere from 8 to 14 points, Emerson shows a four-point race nationally and a three-point race in Minnesota.
