During this election season, the media has put all their attention on the Democratic primary race. Since last summer, we’ve had to sit through endless debates and non-stop coverage. It seems the mainstream media thinks the Democratic nominee will be a shoe-in for the White House. But a new poll out of Iowa is reminding the left just what a hard time they will have in November.
The Democratic primary seems to have been going on forever. It started early last year, with over twenty candidates crowding for attention. The media and liberal establishment went back and forth over which candidate they really wanted. Until they settled on Joe Biden. Oh.
These last few weeks, we’ve seen the Democratic establishment throw all its weight behind the former vice president. It very well looks like a repeat of 2016, when a surging Bernie Sanders was undercut by Hillary Clinton. Will we see a similar turn of events by this summer? That could be the case as the rest of the primaries wrap up.
But a story the media refuses to report on is the record number of voters coming out to nominate Donald Trump. Normally an incumbent can count on getting enough votes to secure his nomination. In Trump’s case, huge numbers of voters are making their way to the voting booths to show their support. It a sign of the enthusiasm and momentum Trump supporters already have.
Now, a new poll out of Iowa is giving us a glimpse of how November just might look like.
Democratic candidates Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders may be getting lots of media attention as the battle for their party’s presidential nomination heats up, but voters in Iowa appear to be solidly behind President Trump for November.
Trump leads Biden 51 percent to 41 percent and leads Sanders 53 percent to 41 percent in Des Moines Register/Mediacom poll results released Thursday.
The same poll, conducted March 2-5, also showed Trump with a 50 percent approval rating in Iowa – the president’s highest ever in the Hawkeye State, according to the Register.
The president’s strongest support in Iowa was among Republicans (94 percent), rural Iowans (68 percent), evangelicals (63 percent), men (60 percent), and those with annual income of $100,000 or greater (57 percent). [Source: Fox News]
Look at that! So much attention has been put on the Democrat primaries, it seems like the media forgot there was a General Election coming up.
This poll shows Trump has a staggering lead over both Sanders and Biden. Barack Obama won Iowa in both 2008 and 2012. But Trump flipped the state in 2016, by winning it by 9.5 point. If this poll holds true, he’s poised to win it by an even greater margin.
What does this tell us about the overall election? Nobody knows the future, but I have a feeling results like this will be repeated across the country. President Trump was able to flip blue states in 2016. That was because blue-collar Americans and those struggling to make ends meet were eager for a president who put America first.
Since then, what have we seen? President Trump has made good on his promises to bring back jobs, land great new trade deals, and work to increase wages. He’s protected our border and stamped out ISIS. Again and again, we’ve seen him persist to help Americans—even as Democrats worked to destroy his administration.
It shouldn’t be a surprise that Iowa is even more eager to re-elected him. Will that be the same in states like Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Florida? I guess we’ll have to see. But don’t be surprised if they break for him, once again.
