Donald Trump was speechless when he saw a new poll from this key swing state
The battleground states in the 2020 Presidential Election are quickly coming into focus.
The ground beneath the candidates’ feet is quickly shifting.
And Donald Trump was speechless when he saw a new poll from this key swing state.
Arizona’s 11 Electoral College votes routinely fell into the Republican column.
Democrats only won the state once in 1996.
But in 2018, Democrats captured a Senate seat, and a brand new poll from Bendixen and Amandi International shows Donald Trump statistically tied with Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden.
But Trump’s approval rating is underwater, with 45 percent of Arizona voters holding a favorable impression of him and 53 percent having an unfavorable view — the overwhelming majority of whom hold a “very unfavorable view,” according to a survey of 520 Arizona registered voters by Bendixen & Amandi International. The firm, which typically surveys for Democrats and was paid to conduct this poll by SMART Local 359, the International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers, conducted the poll from September 9-12.
Trump is tied dead even with Warren at 42 percent in a general election match-up and is essentially tied with Biden 43-42 percent, a lead well within the poll’s margin of error of plus/minus 4.3 points.
McSally is tied at 42 percent with Kelly, a former astronaut and husband of former Arizona Congresswoman and mass-shooting survivor Gabby Giffords.
“Contrary to the conventional wisdom that the presidential race is down to only four swing states — Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and Florida — this poll makes it clear that Arizona is wide open,” said pollster Fernand Amandi. “Arizona is emerging as the new battleground.”
Democrats have long believed Arizona’s changing Demographics – a growing Hispanic population and migration of white liberals from states like California – would eventually put the state into play.
And it looks like 2020 will be the year both parties have to duke it out over Arizona’s Electoral College votes.
