Trump nightmare day is getting worse as a new poll of Florida shows Joe Biden at 50% and leading the president by 9 points.
According to the new Quinnipiac University Florida poll:
In an early look at the 2020 presidential race in Florida, former Vice President Joseph Biden leads President Donald Trump 50 – 41 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.
There are deep gender and racial divisions in the Biden-Trump matchup: Biden leads 58 – 34 percent among women, as men go 49 percent for Trump and 42 percent for Biden. Trump leads 52 – 42 percent among white voters, while Biden leads 79 – 9 percent among black voters and 57 – 32 percent among Hispanic voters.
Republicans back Trump 90 – 7 percent. Biden leads 91 – 3 percent among Democrats and 54 – 32 percent among independent voters.
For Democrats who don’t understand why Speaker Pelosi won’t launch impeachment proceedings against Trump, this is where impeachment stands in Florida, “Congress should not begin the process to impeach Trump, Florida voters say 62 – 32 percent. The only listed party, gender, education, age or racial groups supporting impeachment are Democrats, 64 – 28 percent, and black voters, 52 – 41 percent.”
Joe Biden has a big lead in the Florida primary
Joe Biden is leading in the Florida Democratic primary 41% to 14% for Sen. Bernie Sanders, and 12% for Sen. Elizabeth Warren. Pete Buttigieg is fourth at 8%, and Sen. Kamala Harris is fifth at 6%. No other candidate is over 6% in Florida.
Former Vice President is poised to run up some big wins in the South. Biden has a 20 point in South Carolina, and a 27 point lead in Florida. It is way too early for the state numbers to be written in stone, but Biden has some serious pockets of strength, as the race for the Democratic nomination contains two dozen candidates, but only five serious contenders.
Trump’s reelection campaign launch day is a nightmare
Trump isn’t going to be able to deport millions of immigrants as he promised. The Orlando Sentinel announced that they would not be endorsing him. Trump’s acting Defense Secretary has quit, and a new poll validated his own internal polling that he is losing in Florida.
Donald Trump was trying to create a convention-like event to launch his bid for another term as president. Instead, everything is going wrong around him, as karma is making the case that Donald Trump has got to go.
