It is one of the most important issues facing America today.
And how the American people view this issue could make all the difference in the world this November.
That’s why Donald Trump is all smiles as this new poll shows a huge 65% support from voters in these key battleground states.
In 2016 almost every pollster in America, and the entire world, knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that Hillary Clinton was going to beat Donald Trump.
Well, as the old saying goes, a funny thing happened on the way to Hillary’s coronation.
And that funny thing was Donald Trump and the millions of Americans who make up the “silent majority” in our nation.
It seems almost no pollster, no political pundit, no TV talking head, was willing to accept or even understand that Americans were fed up with politics as usual and ready for a candidate who would shake things up.
Four years later and its “déjà vu all over again,” as every major pollster is predicting a Biden victory in November.
This, despite mounting evidence that instead of a Biden win, it could turn out to be a Donald Trump landslide.
Poll after poll is showing that Americans are fed up and disgusted with the continual rioting and violence in the streets. They’ve had it with wanton lawlessness, and they are furious at Democrats for these things.
But also important this year is what is positively motivating voters to turn out.
And among the many issues that voters care about is the growing issue of school choice.
The government-forced shutdowns of the school systems in many states has left parents at a loss of how to best handle the education of their children.
We’ve seen both a massive increase in the number of homeschooling families and a rise in the number of children enrolled in private schools.
It’s no wonder then that in a new poll commissioned by the Manhattan Institute between a survey released last week revealed that between 66-70% of likely voters in five battleground states support K-12 school choice.
It is important to note that school choice is something Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden has flatly rejected.
The survey, conducted by widely respected Rasmussen Reports, was conducted in the key states of Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
Of all the likely voters surveyed, a whopping 66–70% either strongly or somewhat strongly said they support the concept of publicly funded K-12 school choice.
And in somewhat shocking news, support for publicly funded school choice was higher among black voters, at 65–77%.
For example, in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, support for school choice was at 66% among all likely voters, but at 77% among likely black voters.
And in Michigan, support for school choice was 68% among all likely voters, and 77% percent among black voters.
The poll results from these five battleground states is very significant, as they point to a major discrepancy in support for school choice between likely voters, including blacks, and Joe Biden and the Democrat Party.
Backed by the teachers’ unions bosses, Biden has often repeated that if elected he will ensure no public funds are given to parents to choose other non-government schools.
“When we divert public funds to private schools, we undermine the entire public education system,” Biden tweeted. “We’ve got to prioritize investing in our public schools, so every kid in America gets a fair shot. That’s why I oppose vouchers.”
As this issue continues to grow in importance among voters, and especially black voters, it could be the deciding factor.
