A newly-released New York Times/Sienna poll reported by the newspaper shows Donald Trump leading Joe Biden “in five of the six swing states that figure to be critical to winning the 2024 presidential election,” according to CenturyLink, which is not good news for Democrats and especially the Biden administration.
The survey shows former President Trump leading Biden by 10 points in Nevada, 6 points in Georgia, 5 points each in Arizona and Michigan, and 4 points in Pennsylvania, while Biden is only up by 2 points in Wisconsin, which could evaporate easily because it is 12 months from now until the 2024 election and a former Obama advisor is suggesting people are concerned about the president’s age.
However, the election is not being held today or tomorrow and much can happen over the next 12 months. Translation: American gun owners can make a big difference in then national elections next year, and they need to get engaged now, and be ready to vote if they hope to stop and reverse the anti-gun policies of the current administration.
CBS News is reporting, “Donald Trump holds distinct advantages in his own right when voters look forward: More voters think they’d be better off financially if Trump wins in 2024, and more voters think it’s Trump who can keep the U.S. out of a war, if he wins.”
Trump is the only president in recent memory who habitually referred to protecting the Second Amendment in virtually all of his stump speeches and even during his State of the Union address before Congress. Biden, on the other hand, has been pushing his gun control agenda since taking office. Under his administration, the ATF and IRS have been weaponized against gun owners and firearms retailers, as reported by Lee Williams, head of the Second Amendment Foundation’s Investigative Journalism Project.
CBS News also noted in its report, “Democrats are just less apt to say they’ll vote. Granted, it’s far off, but it does speak to the challenges Mr. Biden has in front of him one year out from Election Day.”
The NY Times wrote, “Discontent pulsates throughout the Times/Siena poll, with a majority of voters saying Mr. Biden’s policies have personally hurt them.”
Biden is also losing support, while Trump is gaining, from traditionally Democrat voters. As Fox News observed, “The Times reported Trump support from Black voters had reached unprecedented levels, with a record 22% of the demographic siding with him over Biden across the six states.”
