ABC News has gotten a hold of the Trump internal polling numbers that HE says are good, but aren’t….
They have Trump trailing Biden in a general election vote by ‘wide margins’ in several state he won a little more than. 2 years ago….
The internal poll is in line with other public polling showing Biden and even other Democrats ahead of Trump in a general election vote….
Donald Trump may bullshit about this, and a lot of people keep going back to the Trump electoral college win over Hillary Clinton…
But things ARE different now….
We KNOW he bull shits…
He has a record in office….
He has NUMEROUS investigations STILL going on about his campaign and financial doings…
He is continually raising people’s taxes…..
The American economy is slowing….
For days, President Trump has denied a New York Times report that his internal polling data showed him in deep trouble in key states in 2020, claiming the Times simply made up the numbers.
It didn’t. He made up the denial. And it appears he is in as bad a shape as the Times said he was.
ABC News has obtained the polling data, which show as bleak a picture for Trump as the Times has indicated. Trump trails Joe Biden by 16 points in Pennsylvania, 10 points in Wisconsin and seven points in Florida, and the president leads by just two points in red Texas. These numbers largely echo the limited public polling we have been seeing on the 2020 general election, which is also brutal for Trump and which he also claims is bogus.
The numbers are remarkable. But just as remarkable is what the Trump campaign is saying about them.
First, it is important to note that, after days of Trump denying the numbers were real — “They reported Fake numbers that they made up & don’t even exist,” he said — his campaign confirms they are. Campaign manager Brad Parscale told ABC News the numbers are indeed legitimate but they are old — from March.
The fact that Trump falsely denied this data existed is important to emphasize — even for a president for whom these false denials have become so commonplace.
But perhaps the bigger takeaway from Parscale’s comment is this: They know how bad Trump’s numbers are, and to pump them up, they are apparently relying upon something called an “informed ballot.”….
The polling data, revealed for the first time by ABC News, showed a double-digit lead for Biden in Pennsylvania 55-39 and Wisconsin 51-41 and had Biden leading by seven points in Florida. In Texas, a Republican stronghold, the numbers showed the president only leading by two points.
The Trump internal polling began in March and has continued…..
