The Democrats’ plans to install Joe Biden as president is veering off course.
Biden finally came out of his bunker to campaign as the election race narrowed.
But one eye-opening Trump poll is Joe Biden’s worst nightmare.
The Democrats thought they had the 2020 election in the bag.
However, things got dicey for them after they cozied up to violent Antifa and Black Lives Matter rioters across the country.
Congressman Jerry Nadler even said Antifa is a “myth,” which was followed by a self-described Antifa militant executing a Donald Trump supporter in Portland.
One poll showed that support for Black Lives Matter has fallen down to its pre-George Floyd levels.
And now a poll out of the swing state of Florida presents serious problems for Biden and the Democrats.

Clinton won this same demographic by double digits in 2016, but they’ve swung for Trump thus far.
Florida has a heavy Cuban population, many of whom fled communist Cuba, and they are not fans of the Democrat Party’s hard turn to the left.
Democrats are counting on winning the swing state of Florida, but this poll shows they have a lot of work to do.
This latest poll dovetails with other polls that show Trump’s support among black and Latino voters is on the uptick.
Among Black Voters:
Biden 66% (-23 vs 2016 results)
Trump 28% (+20)
Among Hispanic Voters:
Biden 56% (-10)
Trump 41% (+13) https://t.co/4JdE2Sp3GY

If those numbers are even remotely correct, that means Biden will have to win an overwhelming majority of college-educated white voters.
Trump appears to be within the margin of error, and there’s a strong belief he has a healthy amount of secret voters, similar to 2016.
The “silent majority” voters might be even more numerous this go-round because of greater reluctance to engage with pollsters.
Only time will tell, but it’s clear that the Democrats are worried because Biden wouldn’t have come out of his bunker otherwise.
