This could come down to the electoral college.

New polling of voters in fifteen different battleground states shows President Donald Trump leading Democrat Joe Biden in the critical states, but trailing nationally.

The polling, conducted by research company SSRS for CNN, revealed that Trump is leading among a survey sample of 583 voters located in the critical states, while trailing nationally to Biden. Trump leads among battleground state voters by a margin of 52 to 45%, whereas Biden leads nationally by a margin of 51 to 46%.

The battleground states where voters were polled were Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin.

The varying polling results in battleground and national settings suggest the 2020 election could possibly be determined by the electoral college, in a situation where the candidate that wins the popular vote does not win the election. Democrats have become harsh critics of the electoral college system in recent years, generally neglecting to recognize that a popular vote election system in which conservative voters in Democrat-dominated states have much greater incentive to vote for President would result in different electoral outcomes.

The battleground polling suggests that Tara Reade’s allegation of sexual assault against Joe Biden has damaged his standing in national polls, with Biden’s solid lead declining from nearly a double-digit margin in recent weeks.

Trump also led Biden with independents, by a margin of 50 to 46%.

President Donald Trump Will Move the 2020 Republican Convention Out of North Carolina

The state had interfered in the convention.

Published

President Donald Trump confirmed that he will move the 2020 Republican Convention away from Charlotte, North Carolina in a series of tweets Tuesday night. The state’s Democratic governor, Roy Cooper, had refused to allow the Republican Party to conduct the event at full capacity, citing supposedly necessary coronavirus social distancing restrictions.

The event was slated to be held in late August, well after the apex of the national coronavirus epidemic. Cooper still refused to allow the Republican Party to proceed with its plans to hold a full-sized major party political convention.

The loss of the Republican convention is set to cost North Carolina millions of dollars in revenue for the state’s economy. Major party conventions are regularly sought by governors and mayors, but it appears that Cooper’s desire to restrict the GOP convention overrode his desire for the benefits of the event.

The President had earlier been threatening to move the convention if North Carolina failed to give the Republican Party the green light to proceed in organizing for its convention as planned.

Sources indicate that GOP officials are already scouting out potential alternative locations for the party’s convention. Early reports suggest that either Arizona or Florida could be selected as possible replacement locations for the event, with both states set to be competitive electoral battlegrounds in the fall presidential election.

Arizona Republican Debbie Lesko called for the RNC to move the convention to her Glendale-area district, and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has suggested that the state would be willing to welcome the President and Republicans across the country for the crucial political event.
