A congressman from Florida has predicted a “glorious” victory for Donald Trump in the upcoming November elections¹. This prediction is based on a recent NBC News poll that shows the former president gaining robust support among diverse groups¹.
Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., has predicted a “glorious” victory for Trump in November among the nation’s voters, citing a new NBC News poll from late January that shows the president gaining robust support among many diverse groups.
Per NBC’s poll, Trump leads Biden among Latino voters and is tied in the mainstream poll at 42 percent among voters ages 18 to 34. Trump is also leading Biden by nearly 20 points with Independent voters, according to their data.
Rep. Gaetz, who is a strong Trump ally, wrote on X, “We are going to win: Independents[.] Hispanics[.] Black men[.] It’s going to be glorious.”
While Biden holds an overall edge with Black voters in mainstream polls, the political winds have shifted over the past few months.
According to a November 2023 article from The New York Times, 22 percent of Black voters in six battleground swing states said they would vote for President Donald Trump in the general election.
The 2024 election is unique in modern history as it is a rematch between the current president, Joe Biden, and his immediate predecessor, Donald Trump². The contrast, according to Sean Spicer, who served as Mr. Trump’s first press secretary, will be simple². For those who believe that Trump’s policies made their lives better and more secure, the choice is clear.
However, the Trump campaign faces its own challenges, including legal troubles, divisive rhetoric, and attempts to undermine the 2020 election results. On the other hand, Biden is struggling to sell his first-term achievements and convince the public he has the energy for a second term.
Despite these challenges, opinion polls show a close race between the two candidates. While Biden’s approval ratings continue to languish, public perceptions of Trump are also negative. The race will likely be decided in only a handful of states.
As the election approaches, both campaigns are gearing up for a tough fight. The outcome of this election could have significant implications for the future of the United States.
