Did the Democratic convention backfire?
The newest rounds of polling to release over the weekend indicate that President Donald Trump, as opposed to Democrat Joe Biden, has gained in the national and state polls during the Democratic National Convention this week.
Rasmussen rolling approval rating surveys indicate that President Trump’s approval rating shot UP 4% during the first three days of the Democrat convention.

Another poll of the reliably blue state of Minnesota indicates that President Trump is tied in a dead heat with Joe Biden, with both receiving 47% of the vote in the state. The midwestern state is increasingly on the radar of the President and Trump campaign officials, with many residents of the state tiring of incessant crime, rioting and property destruction in the wake of the death of George Floyd.
Another new poll released Thursday(with its survey ending on the first day of the Democrat convention) shows President Trump within a 5.5% margin of error in the crucial swing state of Pennsylvania, trailing Biden by four percentage points.
Major party conventions have a tendency to deliver a polling surge for the candidate they intend to highlight. The Republican convention is occurring next week, and it remains to be seen if it’ll have a traditional polling effect on the election for the Republican Party.
The ratings for the Democratic Convention plunged a considerable 48% in comparison to 2016, perhaps suggesting that it was the irrelevance of the event that played to the President’s favor, rather than its content.
DECISIVE VICTORY: Arizona Judge Rules State Senate Can Review 2.1 Million Ballots & Voting Software in Maricopa County
Friday morning, a Maricopa County Superior Court Judge gave the Trump Campaign and overall MAGA movement another small yet decisive victory in their ongoing legal battle in the 2020 Presidential Election. According to an article by the Associated Press, Judge Timothy Thomason ruled that the Arizona Senate can get access to 2.1 million voter ballots and voting machines from Maricopa County, Arizona’s most popular county which flipped Arizona from Trump to Biden. Big League Politics has previously reported on Maricopa County’s Board of Supervisors and their state of perpetual non-compliance with legally issued subpoenas by the Arizona Senate. It appears that today, Judge Thomason has officially ordered that non-compliance to end, and Maricopa County must allow the Senate to proceed with their investigation.
The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has previously argued that ballots should remain secret and not open to investigation. They see the subpoenas issued by the Senate as illegitimate and that they have no right to access the county’s voting hardware. In turn, the Senate and their legal team have argued that the constitution clearly gives the Legislature the responsibility to enforce the law and to maintain election integrity. It is the Senate’s role to ensure that Arizona elections are free, fair, and pure.
Judge Thomason seemingly agrees with the Senate on all fronts and has called the subpoenas “legal and enforceable”. In his ruling, the Judge also stated:
“There is no question that the Senators have the power to issue legislative subpoenas. The Subpoenas comply with the statutory requirements for legislative subpoenas. The Senate also has broad constitutional power to oversee elections. The Arizona legislature clearly has the power to investigate and examine election reform matters. Accordingly, the Senators have the power to subpoena material as part of an inquiry into election reform measures. As such, the Subpoenas have a proper legislative purpose. The Subpoenas also do not violate separation of powers principles. Production of the subpoenaed materials would not violate confidentiality laws.”
The rest of Judge’s Thomason’s ruling can be found here.
“We are thrilled and grateful that the judge was able to see the big picture in this whole issue,” said Arizona State Senate President Karen Fann. “That this has never been about overturning an election. This has always been 100% about voter integrity and finding the answers to all of our voters’ questions about the safety and security and validity of the Arizona electoral system.”
Maricopa County has been accused of committing mass voter fraud, discriminating against Trump voters and using hardware to manipulate votes for Joe Biden. Big League Politics has previously reported that former Maricopa County Treasurer Royce Flora had resigned from his office in disgust with the complacency Maricopa County played in the election fraud. Flora said that he plans to continue to push recall efforts against the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors for what he sees as crimes against the people of Maricopa County.
BREAKING: A judge ruled that the Arizona Senate can get access to 2.1 million ballots from Arizona’s most populous county so it can audit results of the 2020 election.
