How strange will it be that Trump will do things to attract reactionaries regardless of age grouping especially white ones at least until he can betray them after 3 November.
Trump has never cared for testing and contact tracing because it ruins “his numbers” while he also ignores the death toll, his death toll.
It’s important to note that any president or governor would find the choices before the country excruciating. Stay-at-home orders are devastating millions of people, especially the most vulnerable; lost school time can never be recovered. There’s no right answer, and any president might weigh economic factors more heavily than public health experts advised.
But a president concerned for the welfare of the nation would work with governors to find the right balance, instead of needling and undermining them. A president committed to a safe reopening, rather than a blame-avoidance strategy, would be leading the way to ensure the nation had sufficient testing and tracing capacity.Polls show that a majority of the country would favor such a strategy; most Americans are more concerned with risk mitigation than immediate reopening. But Trump’s calculus, as always, is not about uniting the country or winning majority support. He simply wants to turn enough voters against the authorities in enough swing states to claw his way to a second term.
Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden's lead over President Donald Trump now stands at five points, but Trump has an edge in the critical battleground states that could decide the electoral college, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS.In the new poll, 51% of registered voters nationwide back Biden, while 46% say they prefer Trump, while in the battlegrounds, 52% favor Trump and 45% Biden. Partisans are deeply entrenched in their corners, with 95% of Democrats behind Biden and the same share of Republicans behind Trump. The two are close among independents (50% back Trump, 46% Biden, not a large enough difference to be considered a lead), but Biden's edge currently rests on the larger share of voters who identify as Democrats.The former vice president continues to hold healthy leads among women (55% Biden to 41% Trump) and people of color (69% Biden to 26% Trump). The two run more closely among men (50% Trump to 46% Biden) and the President holds a clear edge among whites (55% Trump to 43% Biden). The poll suggests Biden outpaces Trump among voters over age 45 by a 6-point margin, while the two are near even among those under age 45 (49% Biden to 46% Trump).Though other recent polling has shown some signs of concern for Biden among younger voters and strength among older ones, few have pegged the race as this close among younger voters. The results suggest that younger voters in the battleground states are tilted in favor of Trump, a stark change from the last CNN poll in which battleground voters were analyzed in March, even as other demographic groups shifted to a smaller degree. Given the small sample size in that subset of voters, it is difficult to determine with certainty whether the movement is significant or a fluke of random sampling. Nationally, Biden holds a lead over Trump among voters age 65 and older, a group which has been tilted Republican in recent presidential elections.
