Democrats are bullish on their chances to defeat Donald Trump in 2020.
Top party officials also believe former Vice President Joe Biden is the party’s best bet to win back the White House.
But Joe Biden’s heart sunk when he got this bad news from one key swing state.
Joe Biden’s calling card in the 2020 Democrat primary race is his supposed “electability.”
Biden sits atop the early state and national Democrat Presidential primary polls because rank-and-file liberals contend Biden can win back the working-class voters that Donald Trump flipped into the GOP column in 2016.
However, those beliefs may be mistaken.
A recent Civitas Institute poll out of North Carolina showed Donald Trump leading Joe Biden – as well as every other top Democrat running for President – in the Tar Heel state.
For the last several months, the fake news media bombarded Americans with the narrative that President Trump was dead man walking heading into 2020.
According to so-called “journalists” and “political experts” the President’s combination of incendiary tweets, “

racist” language, harsh immigration policies and chaotic White House turned off a majority of American voters.
Democrats could run a “front porch campaign” where the eventual nominee would not have to put in much time or effort crafting their own message and sit back and watch the voters flock to them.
The Civitas Institute poll shows that tact was a mistake.
That’s because the Democrat Presidential primary has been one giant sprint to the left.
Even supposed “centrist” Joe Biden got swallowed up by the leftward march of Democrat primary voters.
During the first debate Biden pledged his support for decriminalizing the act of illegal immigration and granting illegal aliens free taxpayer-funded healthcare.
Biden later tried to walk back these unpopular and politically toxic positions in the second Democrat debate by claiming illegal immigrants needed to “wait in line” and expressing some support for merit-based immigration.
But that only landed him in hot water with open borders activists that demanded Biden apologize for echoing “Republican talking points.”
Politico later reported that Biden’s campaign quietly apologized to open-borders fanatics in an effort to maintain the balancing act Biden is trying to pull off between remaining a viable General Election candidate and winning a Democrat primary.
This new poll out of North Carolina suggests Biden’s efforts are failing.
Barack Obama carried North Carolina in 2008 by a narrow margin.
Democrats believe that its large black population but booming population of college educated white suburban voters made North Carolina a prime pickup opportunity in 2020.
But they also believed North Carolina would fall into Hillary Clinton’s column in 2016 as well.
That victory failed to materialize.
The Civitas Institute poll out of North Carolina should serve as a warning to Democrats that if candidates wrap their arms around socialist and anti-American policies to win the party nomination, they will be cutting off their nose to spite their face.
