Joe Biden appears to have a lead over Donald Trump in the six 2020 swing states. This is citing CNBC/ Change Research’s current election polls. This was reported by CNBC within the last 24 hours. Biden’s edge appears to also have increased from the previous two weeks. This survey also suggests that the president’s approval rating is falling among the tested demographic. From the appearance of the CNBC/Change Research polls, the public prefers Joe Biden’s response to COVID-19 and to police violence.
However, President Trump states the contrary. He cites his party as strong supporters yet.
“96% Approval Rating in the Republican Party. Thank you!” said Trump in a tweet that was posted at 10:27pm on June 16.
Since that time, President Trump has also been quite vocal in pointing out the strongest supportive commentary from his own party. He has been quick to criticize Biden, appearing to use this criticism as a political weapon to incentivize support for his own election campaign. This appears to be a preemptive strategy to draw attention away from the current lead Biden appears to have taken in the survey polls.
While Mr. Trump’s supporters within his own party may still be quite strong, Mr. Trump appears to contradict himself when referring to members of the elected Congress. Over recent DACA rulings, he had a sharp rebuke for the Supreme Court. He has also stated that he would seek to furnish the SCOTUS with a new line up of Conservative justices.
“Do you get the impression that the Supreme Court doesn’t like me?” said Trump in a tweet that was posted at 10:10 am on June 18.
“The recent Supreme Court decisions, not only on DACA, Sanctuary Cities, Census, and others, tell you only one thing, we need NEW JUSTICES of the Supreme Court. If the Radical Left Democrats assume power, your Second Amendment, Right to Life, Secure Borders, and…Religious Liberty, among many other things, are OVER and GONE!” said Trump in a series of tweets that posted at 12:14pm on June 18.
“I will be releasing a new list of Conservative Supreme Court Justice nominees, which may include some, or many of those already on the list, by September 1, 2020. If given the opportunity, I will only choose from this list, as in the past, a Conservative Supreme Court Justice…..Based on decisions being rendered now, this list is more important than ever before (Second Amendment, Right to Life, Religious Liberty, etc.) – VOTE 2020!” said Trump further in a series of tweets that posted at 12:24pm on June 18.
As Mr. Trump continued to offer harsh criticism for the government that encompasses his administration, his opposition took the incentive to criticise him. Biden refuted Trump’s complaint against the DACA ruling. He then accused Trump of “squandering” the economy he inherited from the previous presidential administration.
“The Supreme Court’s ruling today is a victory made possible by the courage and resilience of hundreds of thousands of DACA recipients who bravely stood up and refused to be ignored. And as President, I will get to work immediately to make it permanent,” said Biden in a tweet that was posted at 10:58am on June 18.
He then followed up with harsh criticism of the Trump-era economy that has been gravely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic crisis.
“Donald Trump inherited a growing economy from President Obama and me. And just like everything else he has inherited in his life, he has squandered it,” said Biden, in a tweet that captioned a video presentation. It was posted at 12:35pm on June 18.
