Democrats had been planning for a Joe Biden landslide.
But they just got some bad news.
And Donald Trump surged to the lead in one key poll that no one saw coming.
Over the summer the polls did not look good for Donald Trump.
In the wake of a surge of coronavirus cases in the Sun Belt and Black Lives Matter race riots Democrats succeeded in driving the President’s poll numbers down.
Polls showed Joe Biden leading the President by double digits.
Not one state signaled to Democrats that they were on the cusp of an sweeping landslide victory more than Texas.
A July Dallas Morning News poll found Joe Biden leading Donald Trump by five points.
Jimmy Carter was the last Democrat to win Texas.
Without Texas’s 38 Electoral College votes no Republican can win the White House.
Biden leading Texas had many so-called “experts” forecasting that Biden was on the verge of an electoral rout that would rival Ronald Reagan’s 1980 win over Jimmy Carter.
But as the calendar turned to Labor Day everything changed.
A brand new Dallas Morning News poll revealed Donald Trump surged seven points and now led Joe Biden in Texas.
The Dallas Morning News reported:
Texas remains a toss-up in the presidential race. But Democrat Joe Biden’s modest – and somewhat startling – lead over President Donald Trump has evaporated in the last two months.
From a 5-point edge in early July, Biden now lags Trump by 2 points among likely Texas voters in a poll released Sunday by The Dallas Morning News and University of Texas at Tyler.
Trump’s lead is 48-46.
There are two factors driving President Trump’s surge in Texas.
First is that the coronavirus pandemic is petering out.
Daily case counts have declined, but the true measure that the outbreak is in retreat in Texas is the fact that hospitalizations plunged over 60 percent since the peak on July 22.
Second, the race riots initiated by Joe Biden voters in cities across America long ago wore out their welcome.
The fake news media trumpeted a study claiming 93 percent of the protests following George Floyd’s deaths were “peaceful.”
But that means between 600 and 700 descended into violent riots.
No American would accept 93 percent of car trips not enduring in a fatal crash.
Seven percent of protests breaking out into riots is outrageous and casing Americans to reconsider Donald Trump’s law and order message in light of Joe Biden’s acceptance for Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots.
In his public comments Biden offers a generic condemnation of riots and blames everything on Trump supporters.
Biden refuses to name check Black Lives Matter or Antifa because those rioters are his voters.
