New polling indicates that President Trump is running in a dead heat with Democratic challenger Joe Biden in the state of Minnesota, suggesting that the President has a chance to carry the marginally blue state that last voted for a Republican in a presidential election in 1972.
A Trafalgar Group poll reveals the President trailing Biden within the margin of error, garnering 46.5% of the vote compared to Biden’s 46.9%. The poll samples 1,141 likely Minnesota voters, and the 0.4% differential is well within the poll’s 2.98% margin of error.
The poll reveals that Trump has significantly improved his standing in the state in recent months. Another Trafalgar Group poll queued in July indicated the President was trailing Biden by five percent, suggesting the recent George Floyd riots have played to the advantages of the President. Democrat media commentators and political pundits have scoffed at the latest poll’s findings, confidently assessing that Joe Biden will win the state in a massive blowout in November. Analysis not much different from how centrist commentators forecast the 2016 election in other midwestern states such as Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin.
Trump has campaigned in the northern state recently, visiting Mankato, Minnesota and assailing his opponent’s weak on crime and open borders policies. The President and his campaign officials appear to have the state in their crosshairs, with many Minnesotans feeling terrorized by the left-wing Black Lives Matter riots that have caused $55 million in property damages to the state’s largest city.
Democrat mobs have also arrived in Minneapolis-Saint Paul suburbs to threaten the communities’ largely Republican residents, with one Democrat state legislative candidate warning that the mob would “burn down” Hugo, Minnesota.
If a conservative backlash to riots and anarcho-tyranny delivers Minnesota to Trump in November, perhaps it’s not impossible that the nominally purple state of Oregon will follow in turn?
Iowa Certifies Republican Congressional Candidate as Winner by SIX VOTES
The closest congressional election in decades.
The Iowa State Board of Canvass voted on Monday to certify a Republican congressional candidate as the winner of an election for the state’s 2nd district, with a recount leaving Mariannette Miller-Meeks up on Democrat Rita Hart by a mere six votes.
The final standing result for the election of Iowa’s 2nd congressional district leaves Miller-Meeks with 196,964 votes, and Hart with 196,568 votes. Miller-Meeks’ margin of victory had stood at 47 votes before a mandatory recount, dwindling to a final lead of a half dozen. The election is slated to become the closes congressional race in the United States since 1984, and the closest in Iowa since 1916.
Hart is expected to legally challenge the vote after Monday’s certification. A GOP victory in the Democrat-leaning swing district would be the 14th Republican pickup this year, significantly eroding the Democrat majority in the House of Representatives.
“While the race is extraordinarily close, I am proud to have won this contest and look forward to being certified as the winner,” said Miller-Meeks, an Iowa State Senator representing Ottumwa on Saturday when declaring victory. “It is the honor of a lifetime to be elected to serve the people of eastern and southern Iowa. Iowans are tenacious, optimistic and hardworking, and I will take those same attributes to Washington, D.C., on their behalf.”
The recount process had proven dramatic, with results of Miller-Meeks’ outstanding lead placed in jeopardy when a recount board identified and counted dozens of absentee ballots that weren’t previously accounted for. It’s likely Hart will litigate in hopes of getting county clerks to count additional ballots that had been ruled unlawful.
As the nation demands answers to allegations of pervasive election misconduct and voter fraud, it’s worth noting that only a handful of ballots can overturn the end result of many local, county, and state elections. Let no illegal ballot infiltrate the final count, and let no legal vote go uncounted.
