John Avlon, a senior analyst with everyone’s least favorite purveyor of fake news, CNN, stated on Monday that a brand new poll from the New York Times and Siena College, should be a “major wake-up call to all Democrats,” as it delivers some very, very alarming news for supporters of President Joe Biden and his reelection campaign. The poll has former President Donald Trump taking the lead in a number of key swing states, which, if this stays this way through next November, could mean another term in the White House for Trump.
According to a report from the folks at the Daily Caller, “The poll found Biden trailing Trump in five out of six crucial swing states by substantial margins, with Trump polling between three and 10 points ahead in Arizona, Nevada, Georgia, Pennsylvania and Michigan. Biden holds a slight lead in Wisconsin. The incumbent has also seen sharp declines in support among women (among whom he holds a 50-42 lead), Hispanics (also 50-42) and black voters (71-22), according to the poll.
Errol Louis, another analyst with the network wasn’t sweating the new poll data, stating that Democrats would “come home” when the actual election rolled around, noting that the idea of the former president managing to double his support from the black community is “not something that you can take all that seriously.”
Because everyone knows that REAL black people vote Democrat, right? Well, that’s the kind of racist argumentation made by people on the left. You can’t think for yourself and vote according to your own set of values. If you are a certain race, you have to vote a certain way. That’s how progressives think. Funny how the most racist people on earth are the very one who say they are fighting racism.
“Likewise with the Latino vote. You know, the notion that Trump could almost catch [Biden among] women voters … I just don’t buy that,” he continued.
“But now, what this does do is it suggests that Democrats have to get out there, they’ve got to talk to their younger voters. The 18-to-29s are the ones I think they should be worried about because they get their information from different places. They’re getting it from TikTok or wherever,” Louis stated. “You’ve got to also talk to women and sort of get into the coalitions, the activist coalitions that form the base of the Democratic Party. The labor coalitions, the environmentalists, the women’s groups. You’ve got to do it, you’ve got to work them.”
“You’ve got to make it so that everybody’s on message. Now, there’s a timing issue here, and Biden knows this, I think, better than most politicians in America. You can start too early too. You can blow a lot of money, you can spin up a lot of issues, but then you really got to hit it hard next year, next June. So we should have this conversation in six months and see where they are,” the analyst finished.
“With all due respect to my dear friend Errol, I disagree with him about the posture that, ‘Yeah, everyone’s gonna come home especially if you call them,’” Avlon replied to Louis. “I think it’s too late to wait for next year. What this is among other things is a failure to really hammer home basic messages to the base and to swing voters as well. This poll should be a major wake-up call to all Democrats, as well as the White House.”
He went on to say it’s just a picture of a moment in time and that Louis was right in stating that Democrats historically outperform in special elections, but if it’s true that the left continues to lose favor among young people and minorities, it’s likely because Biden and his campaign team have done a poor job of selling folks on the accomplishments of the current administration.
Well, that’s because the only accomplishments from Biden and his team consist of destroying the economy, spiking inflation, getting military members killed, and a whole host of gaffes. They’ve done nothing to preserve liberty and protect the Constitution. Perhaps the culture at large is waking up to this inconvenient truth and want to try something different?
A spokesman for Biden’s campaign, Kevin Munoz, responded to the new poll in a comment given to the New York Times, stating the administration isn’t worried at all.
“[W]e’ll win in 2024 by putting our heads down and doing the work, not by fretting about a poll,” he remarked.
