Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s sudden passing did more than open up a seat on the Supreme Court.
It also upended the Presidential Election.
And Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death caused this big change in the polls.
There has not been much public polling data after Ginsburg’s death.
But the polling that was made public showed a massive shift in the election in Donald Trump’s favor.
A new Yahoo News/YouGov poll found that after Ginsburg’s death, President Trump cut Joe Biden’s lead in half.
Newsweek reported, “In a Yahoo News/YouGov poll, 45 percent of registered voters in the U.S. plan on voting for Biden. President Trump had the support of 40 percent of those surveyed. When the question was presented by the poll to voters earlier this month, Biden led by 49 percent while President Trump garnered 39 percent.”
Media critic Steve Krakauer,who founded the Fourth Watch newsletter to push for honesty and bias-free coverage in the press, wrote in his latest email newsletter that this polling data showed President Trump held the momentum in the election.
“Who has the momentum? Based on recent polling, Donald Trump has cut into Joe Biden’s once double-digit lead from the summer. The mainstream media is pushing next week’s first scheduled debate between the two candidates as a possible game changer. We have checked the polling on the debate topic and discovered fewer voters are interested in this debate than were looking forward to the first Clinton – Trump debate from 2016. With the numbers of disinterested voters increasing after Ginsburg’s death combined with the passion seen at Trump rallies, we anticipate President Trump will benefit from the growing numbers of disenfranchised voters,” Krakauer wrote.
Traditionally, Supreme Court vacancies favored Republicans.
That’s because after decades of left-wing ruling imposing the liberal social agenda on America, conservatives prioritized electing presidents that would appoint originalist judges whereas the left didn’t focus on the courts because they won all the major cases.
In 2016, the difference in how the right prioritized judicial nominations proved decisive as voters that listed Supreme Court justices as their number one issue broke decisively for Trump over Hillary Clinton and provided Donald Trump’s margin of victory.
Some fake news reporters thought Trump’s win in 2016 taught liberals a lesson and that this time the energy on the Supreme Court would favor the left and Joe Biden.
But that appears to be another fake news media pipe dream.
The Yahoo News/YouGov poll shows the electorate moving in the President’s direction as they evaluate which candidate they want appointing Supreme Court justices and which direction they want the court to take in the future.
