Flip on any mainstream news network and they will tell you that Joe Biden has an ‘insurmountable’ lead over President Donald Trump in the upcoming presidential election.
Sure, most polls still show Biden in the lead. But here’s what they AREN’T telling you…
Biden’s campaign has been in a FREEFALL since the spring… and now Biden and Trump are practically neck-and-neck!
According to a new Zogby poll, Biden leads Trump by 7 percentage points… BUT it’s a six-point DROP since late May!
According to a report from Newsmax, Trump picked up points among voters over the age of 65 and shrunk the gap among both men and women.
And while political insiders acknowledge Biden’s lead, they are warning that Biden has lost a very ‘healthy’ lead among likely voters.
“This is a healthy lead for Biden at this point, but he has lost 6 points in advantage in the past few weeks,” veteran pollster John Zogby said in a press release.
“He previously had a 10-point lead among voters over 65 and this seems to have dissipated. The gender gap, once huge, is now about average. And in a significant troubling sign he leads among ‘Weekly Dollar Store Shoppers’ by only 4 points — 48%-44%. His lead among those who never shop at a Dollar Store is 63%-27%. If this is creeping elitism in Democratic support, it needs to be squashed.”
In other words, Biden is losing support amongst older voters… and even women.
This is despite Zogby saying that Biden has run a clean campaign up until this point. But things seem to be turning against him.
“Up to now, the Biden campaign has played it right — very low key, watch the other guy run against himself and implode. I think he can sustain this for another few weeks as both the economy and the virus spin out of control and hurt the president. But Biden then needs to come out punching in early August, through the virtual convention in mid-August,” said Zogby.
Keep an eye on where Biden stands in the next couple of weeks.
