Joe Biden’s campaign and the Democrats were on cruise control.
Their convention just ended and Democrats expected Biden to expand his lead over the President.
But Joe Biden realized he made one big mistake when he looked at new polling data.
The Democratic National Convention was a disaster.
Speaker after speaker smeared the United States as a racist country and Michelle Obama even went so far as to say that roughly half of the country that identified with the Republican Party were racists.
No speaker at the convention addressed the months-long Black Lives Matter riots spreading across American cities and growing more violent by the day.
That proved to be a disastrous mistake as Joe Biden received no bounce out of the convention according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll.
Reuters reported, “Biden held his lead over President Donald Trump in the national opinion poll taken Aug. 19 to 25, with 47% of registered voters backing the Democratic challenger and 40% supporting the Republican incumbent. That was a similar edge to what Biden had before his party’s convention, a scaled-back, virtual event because of the coronavirus pandemic.”
To make matters worse, Biden’s lead in the suburbs – where he must run up huge margins – actually declined during a four-day pep rally designed to boost his candidacy that was bracketed by universal praise from the fake news media.
“Biden’s advantage declined by 4 points, however, among Americans who live in the suburbs, with about 44% saying they would support him, compared with 36% saying they would vote for Trump,” Reuters also reported.
In addition, a Rasmussen poll found that Biden’s lead over President Trump declined by three points during the Democratic National Convention.
Biden fared no better in swing state polls.
A CNBC/Change Research poll of six swing states found President Trump’s approval rating increasing by two points despite the Democrats spending four days savaging the President and his record with lies and smears.
President Trump also saw battleground voters give him higher marks on his handling of the coronavirus pandemic than before the Democrat convention.
“On how the president has handled the coronavirus, approval rose to 47%, the highest since mid-May. Earlier this month, only 44% of respondents said they approved of how Trump is handling Covid-19,” CNBC wrote of their poll.
In the head to head numbers in the six key battleground states, the numbers barely budged.
CNBC/Change Research found:
Arizona: Biden 49%, Trump 47%
Florida: Biden 49%, Trump 46%
Michigan: Biden 50%, Trump 44%
North Carolina: Biden 48%, Trump 47%
Pennsylvania: Biden 49%, Trump 46%
Wisconsin: Biden 49%, Trump 44%
The fake news media is portraying the 2020 race as Biden holding a steady lead that will be difficult for President Trump to overcome.
But in six of the most important states in the election, Biden had the best week he could hope for in terms of media coverage and dominating the news cycle and could not gain ground.
The last Democrat candidate to gain no bounce from their convention was John Kerry in 2004.
And that campaign ended in disaster.
