During the run-up to the historic 2016 elections, political “experts” in the fake news media assured the nation Hillary would win. Not only would she win, but by such a wide margin, the loss would sting Republicans for elections to come. Those same pundits are still hard at work in the biased media. So are the folks who forecast the weather incorrectly on most days.
Left-leaning outlets identified 11 so-called “battleground states” that a candidate must win in order to secure 270 electoral college votes and ascend to the presidency. Last time around, wide-reaching predictions were that now-President Donald Trump would lose most, if not all of them. CNN, the leader in fake news, told audiences the outcome was a foregone conclusion.
“Hillary Clinton’s odds of winning the presidency rose from 78% last week to 91% Monday before Election Day, according to CNN’s Political Prediction Market,” the fake news outlet reported. “Clinton’s odds stand at 91% while Trump’s fall to 9%, a steep decline from the 23% he had one week ago on October 31.”
These are the swing states and their respective electoral values each candidate won.
Hillary: Colorado 9, Nevada 6, New Hampshire 4, Virginia 13. Total: 32
Pres. Trump: Florida 29, Iowa 6, Michigan 16, North Carolina 15, Ohio 18, Pennsylvania 20, and Wisconsin 10. Total: 134.
Now critics of the Trump Administration want voters to believe they are up for grabs again.
During the 2016 election, pundits prematurely put states such as Pennsylvania and Florida squarely in Hillary’s column. A recent New York Times poll makes the same 2020 prediction with regards to Sleazy Joe Biden. According to the biased New York Times/Siena College, Biden beats President Trump in Pennsylvania by 3 points and carries the president’s home state of Florida by 2 points.
It’s no secret that the Obama-era flunky is the mainstream media’s preferred candidate, and they are making a reckless propaganda push to have him anointed at the Democratic National Convention.
“Across the six closest states that went Republican in 2016, he trails Joe Biden by an average of two points among registered voters but stays within the margin of error,” the NY Times piece reportedly states.
“In national polls, Mr. Trump’s political standing has appeared to be in grave jeopardy. His approval ratings have long been in the low 40s, and he trails Mr. Biden by almost nine points in a national polling average.”
But boots-on-the-ground thinking is entirely the opposite of the elitists at the New York Times and CNN. In fact, people living and working in so-called battleground states anticipate the president will likely win by wider margins and carry more states in 2020. The commonsense wisdom among working people is that President Trump will garner more independent voter support because he made good on campaign promises.
“And I will tell you why the president is going to win in Pennsylvania: because he’s delivered on his promises. He hasn’t lost a vote, he has not lost a vote, and he’s picked up many because he’s delivered. Those that thought it was all talk, look at our economy,” U.S. Rep. Dan Meuser reportedly said.
“Pennsylvania is benefiting, of course, from it: unemployment at the lowest numbers in our lifetime, manufacturing picking up, wages going up, anyone who wants a job…can find a job. We have new openings for distribution centers, and in manufacturing, it’s taking place regularly.”
During the run-up to the 2016 election, President Trump made a series of critical promises. In no uncertain terms, he promised to select conservative U.S. Supreme Court nominees from his publicly published list, build a border wall, reduce unemployment, create American energy independence, restore the country to the number one economy, and rewrite lousy trade deals. He has followed through, 100 percent, on these and things he did not even promise. That is a crucial reason that independent voters in 2016 who were skeptical are inclined to back the Keep America Great agenda.
Democrats are already seeing rising voter support for President Trump among African-American and Latino-American voters that had traditionally backed liberals. Recent data indicates the president could garner upwards of 36 percent of African-American votes after only approximately 6 percent in 2016. Not only is President Trump likely to win all of the 2016 battleground states, again, he may win states once-considered solidly blue as well.
